I hope you had a great weekend and enjoyed the cooler weather! It is definitely beginning to feel like the fall!
Tuesday, September 22 is the Unit 1 Test, including 20 multiple choice questions with 10 jazz and 10 ballet
Look out for information for anyone that wants to attend a meeting with CCM and University of Michigan this week during 5th periods. You will have to sign up ahead of time. Look for a Remind from Mr. Timmerman this week.
Skills Grades will be in full force when we return from fall break next week! You may need to revisit the categories on the blog. Points will be deducted for not being dressed out properly, attendance, etc.
Monday: Gold: Bring any questions that you need clarification on in review for the test on Tuesday. We will dance after we complete our review.
Tuesday: Gold: Unit 1 test followed by dance class.
Thursday: Silver: Grab your question and enter the live class.
Friday: Silver: Grab your question and enter the live class.
I hope you had a great weekend. Please take a look below at the upcoming weekly schedule.
***For anyone that wants to retake the Ballet Quiz and made a 69 or below, as stated in the syllabus, you have one week to reschedule the taking of the test. Because it is the first graded test this year, I am setting up the time for this Wed. at 2:00. Normally, you would contact your teacher and make arrangements but I will be there at 2:00 if you want to retest. This highest grade you can make is a 70 which would equal a 100 on a regular test. To retake the test, go to CTLS and click, “Reeves’ Supplemental Dance Class***
Monday, Sept. 14: Gold Classes, grab your one question under “what will I learn today” and enter the Go Live class. As I take attendance, I would advise reviewing your notes from Lessons 1-5 for the 10 question multiple choice quiz that will take place in this class. Once the test is complete, we will be dancing.
Tuesday, Sept. 15: Gold Classes, grab your one question for the day and enter class. Once we discuss the question and review any other questions in preparation for the Unit 1 test next week which is scheduled for Tuesday, we will jump (“saute”) into class. The test day could change!
Thursday, Sept. 17: Silver Classes: grab your one question for the day and enter class. Once we discuss the question and review any other questions in preparation for the Unit 1 test next week, we will jump (“saute”) into class.
Friday, Sept. 18: Silver Classes: bring one question into class as this is our last review before the Unit Test next week which is tentatively scheduled for Tuesday at this time. This could change!
