Music - Mrs. Bond

Music

Hello students, parents and guardians of Tiverton’s Elementary Schools,   

My name is Renee Bond, I am the music teacher for the Fort Barton, Pocasset and Walter E. Ranger Schools.  I look forward to another year of sharing my knowledge and love of music with you all.  

In the first few weeks of school, the classroom teachers and/or I will be sure to have all students join the google classroom for their specific music class.  This is where I will post any reference materials; music/videos from previous classes (so they can revisit favorites for fun at any time); and assignments for PD or snow days. This is also where students will hand in any assignments. Here is an instructional link for that: https://support.google.com/edu/classroom/answer/6020285?hl=en&co=GENIE.Platform%3DDesktop

 While google classroom is a great resource for students and teachers alike, it is not the best way to communicate with me.  With 3 schools and 31 different classes, I will not be checking each google classroom every day.  The best way to contact me is through email - rbond@tivertonschools.org.  I check my email many times during the school day. One thing that would be helpful to me is to please use your child’s full name and their classroom teacher's name when contacting me.  With 31 classes and just over 600 students, a first name is often not enough for me to know who has emailed me and will slow down my reply time.  You are certainly welcome to call the school and leave a message for me to call you back, I will always return calls!  However, a note in my mailbox about a call might not have been seen for a couple of days, as I travel to the 3 different schools.

With that being said, please feel free to contact me if you have any questions or concerns.  Communicating is one of the most important things teachers and parents can do to help students grow and thrive.  

The progress report music grade will consist of one numeric grade for concepts (1-4 with 3 being “meets the standard”); one letter grade for their classroom behavior (explained on the report); and 2 focus points that will only be marked if there is a problem in that area - using appropriate music vocabulary and performing with other students in class.  While there will occasionally be assessments each quarter - the main focus for your child and their grade will be participation.  If they do their best to ask questions, answer questions and share ideas then they will do just fine.

Looking forward to a musically full year!

Sincerely,

Mrs. Bond
