Band Olympians!



Be a Band Olympian!  Band Olympians are students who excel on our playing assessments throughout the school year.  All of our students can become Band Olympians with practice, hard work and dedication!  Here's how it works:

  • All students will submit a playing performance, two-three times during each quarter, through Flipgrid!
  • Students who score an 85% or higher on a playing assessment earn either a Gold, Silver or Bronze medal.
    • Gold Medal (95-100%) = 3 pts
    • Silver (90-94%) = 2 pts
    • Bronze (85-89%) = 1 pt
  • Students earn medals by performing a playing assessment with a beautiful tone (sound), as well as correct notes, rhythms, dynamics & articulations.
  • 6th & 7th Grade Students who average 1.5 or more points per assignment at the end of each quarter will be given a party during XTS. 
  • 8th Grade Students who average 1.75 or more points per assignment at the end of each quarter will be given a party during XTS. 
    • 1st Quarter - Cider and Donut Party
    • 2nd Quarter - Movie and Popcorn Party
    • 3rd Quarter - Ice Cream Party
    • 4th Quarter - Pizza Party
  • The Quarter Band Olympians will will have a special asterisk next to their name in the concert programs, and, their name will appear in the hallway - "Band Hall of Fame."
  • At the end of the school year, any 6th & 7th grade student who averaged 1.5 or more points per assignment, and any 8th grade student that averaged 1.75 points per assignment will earn an after school party and becomes a BAND OLYMPIAN!
  • All BAND OLYMPIANS will earn a special Olympic–style medal at the final concert of the year
