Students will earn grades based on a weighted system:

     Each QUARTER grade will equal:

          35%     Performances*

Each student will be required to wear proper attire in order to perform:

Girls: Zucker Band polo shirt, black shoes/socks, black pants or skirt (NO JEANS!)

Boys: Zucker Band polo shirt, black shoes/socks, black pants (NO JEANS!)

Band shirts are available through me for $25. If this is a problem for you, please speak to me.
