Good morning, Tiger Jazz,
 We have been discussing in class the "ethos" or behavior of a student.
  --Tier 1 - Students who strive to do the right thing.  All the time.  Everyday.
  --Tier 2 - Students who occasionally have a bad day.
  --Tier 3 - Students who are the problem.  All the time.  Everyday.
Some words of wisdom that will apply to students of all three Tiers.  We are all human.  We all make mistakes.
Do your best and be nice to people today!

Good Morning, Tiger Jazz!
I was so proud of the Tiger Jazz performance in the concert last week!   Congratulations to the soloists.  You were wonderful!  #nomistakesinjazz
Also, special shout out to Andrel, who graciously and courageously performed the drumset without a mat under it.  (shame on forgetful Mrs. Reynolds...)  Lesser human beings would've quit and refused to keep going.  The drumset pedal will not work correctly if it is sliding on a hard floor...
Happy monday.  #doyourbestandbenicetopeople

Musically yours,

Good morning, Tiger Jazz.

Today is Veteran's Day.  Did you know that you could make a career of playing in a band with the military?  I have several friends who do this (One is in the "President's Own" band!) and they make a really good living.  Big Salary!  Think about it...
  Do your best and be nice to people today!
