STMS Jazz Band at Desert Ridge - May 2017

Sonoran Trails Middle School Bands


    Dear STMS Music Parents and Students,


    As I’m sure you’ve heard by now, Arizona schools are closed for the remainder of the year and CCUSD is transitioning to online learning for the remainder of the school year. Here’s some important info so you know what to expect:


    Online coursework begins Thursday, April 2, 2020.


    Online Resources: Students should check the STMS Virtual Classroom each day that they log online to check classwork. I will post general info about the week’s activities there as well as a reminder to check the STMS Band Google Classroom. The details for the coursework will be available in the Google Classroom for the 7th grade or 8th grade band. 

    • SmartMusic - Band students will be expected to do some playing in SmartMusic software. It is free for the remainder of this school year. Check the Google Classroom for instructions on how to log in and use the program.

    Weekly Assignments: The coursework for all STMS Band classes will be posted on Sunday by 5:00 PM and due the following Sunday by 11:59 PM. 

    Attendance: In compliance with state guidelines, attendance needs to be taken every day. Don’t forget to check the Sonoran Trails Virtual Classroom page daily and click the Attendance button every day by 1:00 PM

    Communication: Should you or your student need additional help or information, please feel free to contact me by email at Students can also schedule virtual office hours with me if needed for individual needs or more in-depth questions. I am willing and able to provide virtual office hours on Zoom. Please email to schedule an appointment for this.

    Thanks, as always, for your cooperation and flexibility during this challenging and unprecedented time. I hope you and your family stay safe and healthy!
