Band spelled out with graphics

Wednesday, March 8th, LMS band students attended a CKL competition in Larned. The 7th and 8th grade students had our most successful festival yet! At League Music Festival, each performance is rated by an adjudicator (or a panel of three judges for the bands) using a rubric with 7-9 categories and multiple criteria in order to make ratings as objective and standardized as possible. The overall rating scale is as follows with a PDF with the KSHSAA Music Rating descriptions at the bottom. 

I - Outstanding
II - Excellent
III - Average
IV - Poor
V - Ineffective
