Monday:  (April 27, 2020)

 

Student choice:

1) Make a meme about band, your instrument, or me.  You can tease me, or use me as a subject for it, but be tasteful and not mean-hearted.  :)  It can be about your section, class, or anything else that you think is funny or cool.  Email me the meme at myaros@phasd.us. 

OR

2)  Write two paragraphs (or more) about band and what it's meant to you this year, and how it feels being away from it.  No one else will read these but me.  You can be honest:

Writing parameters:  at least two paragraphs, good sentence structure, start with a capital letter and end with punctuation for all sentences.  You can open up an email and type it right into that, then send to myaros@phasd.us.

OR

3) Construct a video message with the same parameters as option 2.  Upload any videos to Google drive first, so I can view them.  If you email me directly, it will not work because the file will be too large.
