6th Grade Band
Instructor: BURJA   

Welcome to 6th grade band members and their families!

Visit the announements, files, homework and links boxes below to find everything you need for band class.  Check the Parent Portal often to keep up-to-date with your assignments and grades.

A note about grades:

•   The parent portal should be used as a snapshot of your child's academic progress.  The grade average that is reflected
     may not accurately communicate your child's progress on any given day.  If the grade is lower than you expected,
     please check for missing assignments and specific comments from Dr. Burja.  After you've checked these areas, please 
     feel free to email me with any questions.
 
•   Student achievement in Band is not measured solely by numerical means.  Many factors influence student grades:
     daily participation, effort, preparation, and performance.
 
•   All assignments are listed under HOMEWORK at the begining of each marking period.  Students should mark all the
     due dates in their planner or family calendar. 
 
•   The final grade will be posted at the end of the marking period.
 
Announcements
BACK TO SCHOOL NIGHT!
It was so wonderful to see so many parents at Back to School night! Because we followed the "A" day schedule, I only met with 6th and 7th grade parents. For 8th grade parents and for the 6th and 7th grade parents who couldn't make it, I'm posting my BACK TO SCHOOL NIGHT hand-out below (see Back to School night letter at the end of the FILES section).

I'm looking forward to a great school year. Please email me at any time with questions or concerns at kburja@tenafly.k12.nj.us.

REMIND ME - 6th grade students and parents... SIGN UP TODAY
Hello, 2017 2018 6th grade Band students and their parents!
