Instrumental music at the elementary level is not a graded activity.
Band at Concord Middle School is graded on a trimester schedule. Students may also receive an interim progress report each term when absolutely necessary, though most communication regarding grades will be done over email.
The grading policy for band at CMS is currently in review for the 2018/19 school year.
Concerts are the culmination of all of our hard work and a celebration of what we have achieved as an ensemble. They are also counted as a performance assessment and must be made up in the event of an excused absence (see Concerts).
Make-up assignments are determined on a case-by-case basis.
