Here is a message from Mrs. Bounds, band director at SHS.
Please reference the link as well.
Dear Incoming Freshman Band Students and Families,
Thank-you for your interest in the Sheldon High School Bands & Color Guard. Attached you will find an informational flyer about the many band opportunities we have at Sheldon.
As you begin your forecasting for your classes I highly encourage you to register for Concert Band when you forecast. You will circle “Concert Band” in the “music section” of the forecasting sheet AND list Concert Band as your first elective choice. As a freshman, you are enrolled in Concert Band, which meets third period all three trimesters. As a member of the Sheldon Concert Band you will perform in 4 school concerts and at least one band festival performance. Students in Concert Band also have the option to participate in our jazz bands and Pep Band opportunities. Joining Concert Band is a great way to “ease” into high school band. More details about our band program and some of the “myths” about joining the Sheldon Band can be found in our Middle School Recruitment Poster
After your freshman year in band, the format of your class schedule will change to incorporate marching band in addition to your regular band class. However, should you be interested in joining the Marching Band as a freshman (either in the woodwind, brass, percussion, or color guard sections) please contact Ms. Bounds at email@example.com We would love to have more freshmen join our marching band so if you would like more information in participating in this band please let Ms. Bounds know.
I know that there may be students who are hesitant to continue in band for many reasons, including they are not sure that they will have room in their schedule. I assure you that we have had many students who have participated in sports, world languages (including Spanish Immersion, Honors Programs, and IHS all whom have also participated in band for four years at Sheldon HS. We are here to support you in this journey as well. All I can recommend to you is to try it.
This has been my first year as band director at Sheldon HS and I’m so excited for what the future holds for our outstanding band program. If you have any questions about anything please do not hesitate to reach out. I’m here to answer any and all question you may have.

Hello my lovely students,
I hate to be out again, but I have a District Literacy Team meeting all day today.
Please refer to the Google Classroom for the assignments. You will need headphones, as you will be watching a video INDIVIDUALLY and answering questions INDIVIDUALLY.
This lesson is in preparation for our persuasive speech. Please turn everything in via google classroom.
Thank you for being awesome and helpful for our guest teacher!
Popsicles on Thursday as long as all goes well today!
Sorry guys! I’m out again. Please continue to be good. I know I can count on you!
** We will have a safety drill today. Please follow the directions when the announcements come on. I don’t know which period, but have your jacket handy when you evacuate for the fire drill.
Attn: Locker Clean-Out day is today after school. They will announce it over the speaker system. Students need to show their assigned teacher that they took all the junk out of their locker (ie. food, library books, trash…etc).
Periods 1/2 and 4/5: Block Class
Students are currently working on their First Day Cover project. Things students should have turned in by the end of today:
Period 6: AVID
Students may have a work day. Work on missing assignments from other classes because next Friday is progress report day. I want you to get anything in that is missing.
IF you can show Ms. Hickok you have EVERYTHING turned in (no missing assignments), then you may play board games from the tall cupboard. As you’re playing games, you could also have a brief discussion about your week and talk about our month’s theme: kindness.
Period 7: Advisory
Binder clean up! Use the hole punch and punch holes in any papers that are thrown in there loosely. Advise them not to recycle anything until they are sure it is recorded in their grade.
Check your grades on Student vue and write them down on a piece of paper – Don’t forget to put your name on it!! Turn them in to Ms. Hickok. This is how you will get credit for the period. If you have missing assignments, you need to make sure to get them in since Friday is progress report day.
Students may play board games during advisory if they have NO missing assignments. Share with each others groups things that you did that were kind for others and kind things others did for you. Ms. Hickok may walk around to hear what you have to share.
**Please sit in your previous seating arrangement!
Thank you for being on your best behavior everyone!! I’ll see you on Friday!
