7th and 8th graders at Lakewood Middle School returned from summer break for an exciting day filled with teambuilding games and orientation activities. After the morning assembly, students participated in class activities with their 1st hour teachers. After lunch, students blitzed through the rest of the schedule and met with their teachers for about 10 minutes.
In both 7th and 8th grade band, Mr. Bley met with students to share information about what we would be doing in band this week, this quarter, and this year. 8th graders are looking forward to their pregame show which will take place at Salina Central Stadium on Friday, October 9. 7th graders are excited about moving on to Book 2 of the Essential Elements and participating in band contest in March. Tomorrow, 7th and 8th graders will review class expectations and procedures, so that (hopefully) they can bring their instruments next week and play them in class.
In 6th grade band today, students began the process of going over class expectations. They each received a handout detailing what to expect out of band, what they needed for class, how to be successful in band, and what is expected of them in band. Students watched a PowerPoint presentation as they made their way through the handout. Tomorrow, they will finish going through the handout and learn about class procedures. The contract and agreement for class is due on Monday, August 17.
