Cooperating with class and following the instructions of the teacher. 4 points – Entering and exiting the stage Entering and exiting the stage quickly and quietly. The homeroom teacher will monitor this and give Mr. Coulter the names of students who cause problems entering and exiting the stage. 20 exam points for each morning performance for 2 separate exam grades. Due to the large array of reasons why a student would not make it to the evening performances I will not grade the evening performances but the high expectations are still there. When students come to the evening performance they are still required to have on the required attire. Showing up without the required attire for the morning performances will result in a reduction of the exam grade. Showing up in the evening without the required attire will result in the student not performing.
