    ===Optional Assignments for summer are posted in Google Classroom===

    Open the Google Classroom assignment under Lesson #10plus ;

    Scroll through the Google Slides;

    Your "optional assignment" is to submit the "Response Journal" with comments.  It only counts for optional credit if you answer (or at least try to answer) the questions.  Turning it in without answers counts as non-optional credit (or optional non-credit?). 

    We don't have information about future performances.  Classes are closed for summer.  But I'd still like us to...

    -- work on being able to increase our playing skills

    -- play the music in the "Concert Music" folder in Google Classroom

    -- play coin line solos and move up "Levels"

    -- and HAVE FUN playing!


    (My old web page .... will return again, when we return to school!)
