Habit Progress and Learning Targets

Conferences this week-

This week are the first conferences of the school year.  In each students data folder or portfolio you will find a progress sheet for music.  It will tell you-
  • The four trimester learning targets-goals for your child's grade level
  • A self-assessment for Habit 1 and Habit 2 your child has
    completed for their work in music class.
  • An indication of my assessment of your child's progress in Habit 1 and Habit 2.
Feel free to stop and see me in the music room if you have any questions.
