Recordings and EPO’s

Very soon we will be requiring our students to send us recordings of their book lines. Each week at least 1 EPO (Electronic Pass-Off) will be required for a grade. The students are obviously free to send us more than one a week, but only one is required.

Parents: remind your kids that they need to be practicing as much as they are able, and to send EPO’s to us!

A half hour a day is sufficient, but every extra minute counts! The students have been instructed in the proper procedures of recording and sending EPO’s. If you have any questions please don’t hesitate to contact Mr. Russell or myself.
