     Mr. Brill's Expectations


To have a successful music program at Eagle Valley Middle School, it is important that a list of guidelines is met to achieve our goals. The guidelines are mandatory for all students to follow. It is important to me that you have an opportunity to learn and that I can teach. This list was created to let everyone know exactly what is expected for a balance between the students learning and the ability for me to teach to have been established as well as the consequences that will occur if a specific guideline is not met.
