6th Grade Chorus Student Growth Measure (SGM) Assessment

Tomorrow, August 9,  all 6th grade chorus students will take the chorus Student Growth Measure (SGM). This pretest will measure their prior knowledge of music theory and choral techniques. The same test will be administered at the end of the year. Students will be tested in the school computer lab. Please have your son or daughter bring a set of earbuds or headsets, if you approve of such. If you do not want them to bring their own, a set will be provided.

The test will take place during their chorus class period. They will not miss any other classes. Please let me know if you have any questions.
