This event will also include clinics in the afternoon with Rob Parton and other members of his group.

The clinics will be from 3:00 - 5:00 p.m. in the GBMS Auditorium. More information will be available for jazz students and their families regarding these clinics.
Since we just finished ISAT testing this past week, there will be no practice record requirement for Week 1 of the practice records. Students received new practice records on Friday (GREEN) and should start recording their practice times on Monday (3/7) on Week 2, due the following Monday (3/14).
All students will be starting scale testing on Tuesday, 3/8. 6th grader will do the testing in class and 7th/8th graders will complete their testing during sectionals this week. 7th/8th graders must check the board for the new sectional days and times for 3rd trimester.
MUSIC THEORY: will start back up next week (3/16). Practice your scales!!!
