February 29, 2020 The Desert Ridge High School Winter Guard…
From Mrs Campbell ~
Hello Band Family -
We are in uncharted territory, and I know there’s a lot of questions about how the school year will move forward. Everyone is doing their best to navigate these circumstances; teaching is an act of improvisation and inspiration, and I believe that our teachers and students will find new ways to shine! Know that we all care deeply about you and miss seeing you.
Seniors (yes… I am just talking to you), I can’t even imagine how difficult this all must be. This is the time you are supposed to be living it up at school and enjoying those 12 years of hard work! My heart hurts for you all and the events/occasions you are missing out on. I have some ideas in the back of my head for just you all. Stay tuned for those.
I wanted to reach out to you all and let you know that starting next week I will be providing some assignments for you to work on. It will be a menu of choices that will allow you to choose what best fits your life right now. I will also be setting up online “office hours” where you can come join me to get feedback on music, talk, listen to other students or whatever. I will be using WebEx. That application should already be on your Rapid Identity portal…however, I will set up meetings (and invite you all) during my office hour times. If you are able to visit during the meeting times… cool… if not, no worries.
Because of the future assignments, I will be at school one last time (during the closure) on Thursday 3/26 from 11am-noon for you to get your instrument or any music materials you may need (warm up books, sticks, mutes, etc). Like before, I can only let one student in through the outside door at a time AND you must immediately leave after getting your belongings. You will NOT have access to any other location on school grounds.
I miss you all and I hope you are getting through this the best that you can. Try to keep a smile on your face and know that you will be a stronger person on the other end of this.
