Parents, please read and sign the Practice Agreement in the front of your student’s Practice & Progress assignment book. The parent is responsible for signing the practice record each week. The student is responsible for practicing!
Practice Ribbons: When the student meets the minimum practice goal (100 minutes/week), a sticker is placed in his/her book. Practice Ribbons are awarded for every five stickers.
PracticePins: When students initiate their own practice without parental reminding, parents need to draw stars on the days their student initiates practice; three or more parent stars per week earn a weekly teacher star in the Practice & Progress book. PracticePins are earned by accumulating twenty teacher stars in the assignment book. The PracticePin is awarded at the upcoming MWA Performance event.
Please note that these practice awards are based on a three-way communication system between the parent, student, and teacher. These awards are not based on achievement. Students who practice consistently and correctly, however, are the ones who also achieve results!
