Pound Building Expectations

Be Safe          Be Respectful           Be Responsible

Class Guideline:  Respect other students, instruments, and school property. If it’s not your instrument, please don’t touch it. The instrument storage area is a space to store instruments only. This is not a place to “hang out” and “play around”. Getting into lockers is strictly forbidden!

Class Philosophy: Strive for excellence every day. Be better today than you were yesterday. The only reason to play music is because it is fun. The better you are the more fun it is. It takes hard work to reach the level of excellence I think we can reach. The performances will always be more fun than the work, but I guarantee it will be worth it.

Food:  NO GUM, food, candy, or other nuisance items allowed in this room. This is one of the nicest rooms in the district – let’s take care of it!

Instruments:  You are responsible for having your own instrument at school each day in good working condition.

Talking:  When Mr. Vicroy, or anyone is at the podium, THERE IS NO TALKING! When they move away from the podium area, you may converse quietly. Two taps of the baton on the stand is your signal that it is time to stop all conversations.

Manners:  Students are expected to show good  classroom manners which includes raising your hand and then waiting to be called upon to talk or ask questions.

Tardies:  You are expected to be in the classroom preparing for class before the starting time of class. If not, you are tardy.

Attendance:  We are a performance class, therefore attendance is required at all performances unless prior arrangements have been made.

Concert Attire:  When we perform, we wear our band shirts and anything black. Jazz Band I will wear all black.
