Norco High School Band - Spring 2021

Welcome!!

Dear New and Returning Band Members and Families:

As we get ready to begin the spring semester 2021 within a distance learning model I have provided essential information and links below.

Please make sure to connect with school, district, and community sources to make sure you have the most accurate information on a daily basis. The following websites are a good place to get information:

CNUSD Updates: https://www.cnusd.k12.ca.us/cms/One.aspx?portalId=211960&pageId=1929447

Norco High School Updates:

Distance Learning: Overview

As we have worked through a lot of technology issues in the first semester, we now have the ability to incorporate many different types of music learning this semester. This includes more emphasis on playing assignments through smart music as well as a continuation of theory and colorguard assignments. This will be our format until we can transition back to in-person learning.

Please make sure to sign up for the proper Google Classroom  and Smart Music class  and include Marching Band for both platforms. * Smart Music codes will be given within the appropriate Google Classroom with links under the class stream. Please sign-up there.

Thank you students and families for staying with the program especially under such unprecedented circumstances!!


Essential Class Information and Getting Started

 

Communication:

For communication it is critical that student and parent contact information in the Q System be up to date as that will be my primary starting point of contact. I will also use district e-mail, and the Remind App. Parents can e-mail me at rkmora@cnusd.k12.ca.us  especially if they are enrolled and not receiving information from me through the Q system.

Band/Guard (Periods 0-3 and 7) Distance Curricula:

Students will essentially be completing performance tasks and other assignments listed in their specific Google Classroom portal. Assignments involve performance tasks along with written assignments. I have attached instructions to the website for those that want information on how to access Google Classroom. It is a good primer on how to use the system overall so you may want start there first if you are new to the platform.

I have posted the distance learning syllabus for all classes on the band website. It gives even more detail about grading and attendance so please consult it as well.

*Since Jazz and Marching share the same personnel as periods 1-3 I have cleared with admin to use our daily Google Meet time during periods 1-3 to account for the daily interactive components for both classes. I will be attending Jazz Band on the first day of classes at 6:45am even though that may change.

 First Day of School:

I will be sending out an e-mail via the Q system to all enrolled students and parents before Monday, January 11th. This e-mail will have the same information listed here. Essentially once a student has the class codes for Google Classroom they should log in with their CNUSD account. Remember that I have placed a tutorial for this on the website.

Once logged in to their class, students will see a post for a Zoom link in the class stream. They should click it to attend our virtual class meeting at their appointed class time. After that they can navigate the assignments and portal at will and with my further classroom instructions. Remember that we will resort to Google Meet if Zoom has technical issues.
