Practice Assignments

PRACTICE LOGS GO FROM MONDAY TO SUNDAY.

STUDENTS SHOULD STRIVE FOR 150 MINUTES (105 during remote learning) PER WEEK.

That is 22 MINUTES (15 during remote learning) PER DAY. 

EACH MINUTE OVER 150 (105 during remote learning) = 1 POINT EXTRA CREDIT.

You will fill out a Google Form each week for your practice log.

Google Form Logs have to be done no later than Sunday, the last practice day of the week which goes from Monday to Sunday. A late log will be provided but the grade goes down 10% for each class day it is late.


If you are absent whether it is unexcused or excused,
you are to complete one page in your theory book and submit it for grading ASAP.
