Band Olympians!



***Due to Covid-19 and Virtual Learning, I have not made a final decision on if we will run the Band Olympian Program, as it is a rewards based program- it may be modified***

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 be assessed two times during each quarter
  • 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 Grade Students who average 1.5 or more points per assignment at the end of each quarter will be given a party during XTS. 
  • 7th & 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 grade student who averaged 1.5 or more points per assignment, and any 7th/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
