Mr. Brett Higginbotham

Welcome Back!

I am excited to be starting the 4th Quarter with you!  I will miss seeing you each day in person, but look forward to continuing our music virtually.  Our class may look a little different than what we are used to, but we will navigate our way through this change together. Here is some information you may find helpful. 

In addition to working on some skills at home, we will have live instructional sessions or small group meetings through Google Meet  once a week (more info will be provided). Our live sessions will be on Fridays at 12:00 pm - 1:30 pm (but will not take the entire hour and a half, each grade level will meet separately for a short period of time)

 It is going to be very important that you check your PCPS GMail account and our Google Classroom at least once a day as these will be the primary ways that I will communicate with you during the 4th quarter.

Students will have both written and playing grades during the 4th quarter.  The written work will be a variety of short answer, multiple choice, google form, definition, note naming, etc....  Playing grades will need to be recorded (audio or video, student choice) and submitted via Google Clasroom.  More instructions will follow on Google Classroom.  Some of our grades will be earned through the live instructional sessions too!

My office hours will be from 1:30 - 2:30 pm each day.
