***Practice Cards***

Students are expected to practice at least 60 minutes per week (10 minutes six times per week works great!). Please make sure your child is practicing the necessary amount of time, and completing their practice cards accurately. Practice cards are due every week and must be signed by a parent/guardian, even if it is for zero minutes. 

Grading of Practice cards:
60+ minutes: A
40-59 minutes: B
20-30 minutes: C
0 minutes but signed: D
0 minutes, no signature: F
