BOE Letter re: FUSE, Jan. 4, 2021
The New Rochelle Board of Education updated the community on contract talks with FUSE in a letter on January 4, 2021.
Students' Distance Learning is through their
Strings 4th and 5th Grade Google Classroom. If you are using a Mobile Device you will need the Google apps on your device.
Band - Hugh Stuart - email@example.com
Students you will have to sign-in with your nredlearn username to open the Band folder. If you are using a tablet or phone you will need to install the Google Drive app.
Band students should practice 3-4 times per week, for 20-30 minutes per session - but more is okay too!
Please follow the link to the “Band Resource Folder” - all music for both 4th & 5th grade performance pieces and other additional items are posted.
For additional practice assignments:
5th grade students - start in your music book on page 16 & move forward
4th grade & 1st year students - start in your music book on page 7 & continue
*CLARINET & SAXOPHONE PLAYERS* - please be EXTRA CAREFUL WITH YOUR REED!!! I will not be able to provide you with a new reed until we are back in school.
So - now is a great opportunity to take your time when putting your reed onto your mouthpiece - go slowly, make sure it's placed perfectly, and try your best not to damage it!!
If your reed is no longer working, have your parent search on Amazon for:
"Rico (clarinet) or (saxophone) reads" (make sure you search for the reed that goes with your instrument!)
5th grade - #2.5 or 3 strength
4th grade - #2 strength
Please check the resource folder again soon for recordings & other band updates. As always, please feel free to contact me with any questions or concerns!
