THIS WEEK'S HOMEWORK: THE CLASSICAL PERIOD Our first homework assignment of the semester is our next unit in Music History, the Classical Period. Make sure you get it done before Thursday's quiz.
New homework policy: homework must be completed by one week after it is due. After that it will not be accepted. Entire classes that get homework done by the QUIZ day will automatically get 2 XCR points.
There are a LARGE NUMBER of people who didn't do last week's homework. A list was sent via Remind. Remember to get it done by Thursday or you will be unable to make it up.
STUDENT INFORMATION FORM Make sure you fill the online information form out immediately if you didn't already do so (tinyurl.com/LCsingerinfo): Per 2: Castellanos, Tims, White
LISTENING PEER EDIT Our first peer edit of Semester 2 will be on Friday. Make sure you have your listening examples done. If you missed a listening, you can find them all on the listening page.
SPECIAL NOTE: Please make sure that our first example is spelled "Doulton" not "Daulton" (sorry!).

HARRY POTTER ADVISORY In my attempt to teach students to love to read, we will be reading (as a group) the first of the Harry Potter series, "Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone" during advisory on Tuesdays. If you want to strengthen your reading (or just want to read along with us), please bring your copy of the book and join us.
If you're in favor of this cause and want to support us, I would like a few copies of the book to have on hand. Given the current craze of house cleaning and purging, it might be available from a thrift store for those who have the time to check! Please send your book donations to my classroom. Thank you for supporting this important goal.
BELLS ON WEDNESDAYS! The response to our piece for bells and choir at the Winter Concert was amazing! We are going to start a bell-ringing group for those interested. For now, we will practice on Wednesdays during advisory, to teach everyone the basics and to figure out who is interested. From there, I will split you into groups if there are more than 12 people interested. No experience is required! We will start this week.
REAL GROUP RAFFLE Interested in seeing the Real Group on February 25? Buy a $1 ticket (or 6 for $5) for a special student raffle for a pair of tickets!
You can also bring in a Sing raffle donation—you will receive one ticket per donation! Winner will be drawn at lunch on Friday, 2/15.
"SING" RAFFLE We still have money to make this year! Bring in a donation for the Sing raffle to help the choirs. If each person brings just one item, we will have over 160 items to raffle off!
