Choir Performance T-Shirts - same as last year!

 Hello Choir Families!
 
This is just a quick message to let you know that the choir shirt is the gray performance shirt we used last year.  If you are a returning student and already have one that fits, they do not need to purchase a new one.  There will be a new choir spirit wear t-shirt available by next week that is optional to purchase.

Charms Assignment Due Friday, 8/25/17

Your student's first grade will be to bring the attached sheet filled out so I can enter your information into my database!  I will hand out the sheet in class as well.  This helps me keep track of your student's information from year to year and also allows me to communicate with you based on event and group.
 

Welcome to Choir!

The first day at a new school is always exciting, but can cause apprehension as well - please know that I am thrilled to meet and get to know your children and am looking forward to a wonderful year of singing and growing together!
