As part of our 5th grade band program, we are offering beginning band students an opportunity to work with a 6th – 12th grade buddy teacher outside of school. This would be a private lesson or tutoring session.
The 5th graders, or buddy students, will select a buddy teacher from the approved list and meet with that teacher at the teacher’s house outside of school hours. The buddy lesson takes place once a week for a half hour.
The lesson would consist of reinforcing the materials the beginners are working on in band class. The buddy teacher will give the buddy student extra help and an opportunity to ask questions from a fellow student who has been through the program.
In order to be eligible to be a “buddy teacher” each student must meet the following guidelines:1. Students must demonstrate proficiency on the assigned music and related class materials.2. Students must maintain a "B" average in band class.3. Students are expected to have satisfactory citizenship in ALL classes.
Thanks for being a buddy!!Mrs. Solomon and Mr. Harris
