    Any student that is new or needed to a replacement pair of shoes or band polo, those fees are due before the Christmas Concert in December.

  • Grading

    Posted by Bonni Mccarter on 8/15/2018 6:00:00 AM

    Remember: Sound of Pride is class time and after school time and football games and performances.  All of this goes into your grade.  Each week - evey student will have available 50 points for everything that we do in class each day.  Each after school rehearsal (ASP) is worth 25 points.  Every performance we have with SOP is worth 200 points.

    Make sure that you are here so you can get all of your points.  It is very hard to get you caught up if you are not here for just one practice.  We are asking that everyone please look at the calendar and plan ahead.  Any absences or conflicts that we have, please notify a director ASAP so perhaps we can work out a compromise for the student!

    When you are at school all day, we excpect you to be at rehearsal after school.  Any absence from an after school rehearsal, that is not excused (doctor's appointment (bring a note) etc.) will result in a zero for that rehearsal.

    Please communicate with us so we can plan the most efficient rehearsal for your students!

  • Cell Phones

    Cell phones are not permitted to be with the students throughout the school day or school functions.  This is inlcusive of HOME football games.  Though we recognize the need for the phone for when the band travels, students are NOT permitted to use them during the game unless in emergency situations.

    Black socks that fit your student WITHOUT seeing skin above the shoe if they sit in pants is needed.  Ankle socks are not permitted.  The brand is NOT an issue as long as NO logos are seen.
