You are expected to follow Delaware Academy student behavior expectations at all times. This includes arriving to class on time, having the appropriate materials for class, being respectful to your peers and teachers, and contributing to the class in a positive manner.
Your grade for this class is calculated as following:
50% Participation and Preparation: Being on time, having the appropriate materials (music provided), singing to the best of your ability, memorizing your music when appropriate, and rehearsal etiquette (as outlined the first day of class).
50% Required Performances: This is the equivalent to your major test or final exam. This grade includes attendance, appropriate concert attire, appropriate concert etiquette, and singing to the best of your ability. The only acceptable excuses from a performance are unforeseen emergencies and severe illness.
Parents: Please try to contact me in advance if possible (by phone or email). If it is a last minute emergency, please send a written excuse to me for the reason of your child’s absence from the performance within a week of the missed performance. Excused absences will result in an exempt grade.
