CHS Bands Achieve Superior Ratings at West TN Concert Band Assessment

Yesterday at the West Tennessee Concert Band Assessment our Pride of Collierville Concert Bands achieved the highest ratings. The rubrics covers all of the national standards for music and assigns a number system to define comprehension and execution.
Superior rating -1
Excellent rating 2
Good rating – 3
Fair rating - 4
Poor rating – 5
Our Concert Band, which is all freshman, played grade 4 level music receiving Superior ratings from all music adjudicators.
Our Symphony Band played grade 5 music and received an overall rating of Superior (CONGRATULATIONS to our new teacher Mrs. Burgess for this accomplishment). They played music at the same level as other local schools top ensembles.
Our Wind Symphony played grade 6 music which is the hardest grade level of music and received Superiors from every judge. We were the only school in West Tennessee to play grade 6 music and the piece of music they played “Lincolnshire Posy” is possibly one the hardest piece to play for a high school ensemble!
Please Congratulate a band student today when you see them. This is no easy task for ALL of our ensemble to be this high caliber. We are extremely proud of them!

TN Promise Meetings Cancelled, Mandatory Online Seminars Instead

Out of an abundance of caution, tnAchieves is cancelling the remainder of its mandatory TN Promise meetings, including the meeting scheduled for CHS students. Because the window of opportunity to meet with high school seniors is small, tnAchieves will NOT reschedule the meetings.
tnAchieves is communicating this change to students and parents/guardians this morning. Students and parents/guardians have been sent a MANDATORY webinar. It is mandatory for the student to log individually into their tnAchieves account and watch the webinar in its entirety to retain TN Promise eligibility. The deadline to watch the short webinar is April 3, 2020 at 11:59 PM CT. Failure to watch the webinar by the deadline will result in loss of TN Promise eligibility.
