Academic Expectations and Eligibility Band members are students first, thus, your highest priority should be your grades. All band members are expected to maintain a 2.0 grade point average and represent the band honorably whilst in the classroom. Students are expected to take all of the knowledge that they learn in the band class and apply it to the other academic subjects and vice-versa. Music is an art form that requires a person to be well organized and intelligent. School Day Rehearsal Schedule Monday: No rehearsal Tuesday: 4pm -5pm study hall 5pm to 7:30pm practice Wednesday: 4pm to 5pm study hall 5pm to 6:30pm sectionals Thursday: 4pm -5pm study hall 5pm to 7:30pm practice Friday: Football Game Band Members Involved with Athletics • • Students are encouraged to achieve all that they can and are therefore permitted to participate in both band and any desired athletic program at T. Wingate Andrews High School. Communication is crucial to maintaining balanced success in both areas. It is the student’s responsibility to make sure that their athletic coach and band director are both made aware of any and all scheduling conflicts in advance. This includes bringing copies of schedules for each activity to both their coach and band director. If advanced notice is not possible, the student must notify these persons as soon as possible. Band Member Conduct • • • Due to the high volume of performances, band members are constantly on display. Therefore it is imperative that each member be fully aware of the importance of good behavior. Any misconduct reflects negatively on the program, the school, the student’s family, and community, and may very well undo the good work of many dedicated students and parents. Any student who dishonors the band by their conduct or actions either at school, on a trip, or in the community, shall be subject to dismissal from the band program in addition to any other disciplinary action taken by the school. Students who are repeatedly disciplined by school authorities for violation of school policies will be subject to dismissal from the program. General Responsibilities It is essential that all members be at all rehearsals and performances. Advance notice is always given to band members concerning all rehearsals and performances; therefore it is expected that all band members should be at all functions. Please share the calendar with your parents and mark your calendars accordingly. Please make every attempt not to schedule doctor appointments or family outings during these events.
