Welcome to the 2018-2019 school year!
We'd like to welcome all members, new and returning, to the 2018-2019 school year! We extend an especially warm welcome to our newest members - welcome to our choir family!
Concerts, rehearsals, fundraising events, payment deadlines are all posted on the members calendar. Please review this calendar with your family's calendar and notify Mr. Yasay (Women's Glee, Women's Chorale, Intermediate Mixed, Noise Complaint) or Dr. Redding (Bel Canto, Concert Choir, Male Chorus) of any potential conflicts. Check back often as the calendar is consistently being updated.
We cannot provide all of the amazing opportunities our students obtain without the help of our incredible parent volunteers. We are always accepting help in any capacity - chaperones for concerts/trips, setup for concerts/fundraisers, assisting with uniforms, serving food at choir events, creating publicity, and many more! We have a wonderful committee of parents who help us steer the program in the right direction. If you are able to volunteer, please enroll in the ADDitions and fill out the information in the Volunteer link below! Thank you in advance for any help you are able to provide!
There are 4 documents that we need signed in order for you student to be able to fully participate in choir. The forms can be found at the bottom of the Policies page. Please take a moment to review our choir program's policies, then print, sign, and submit the forms by this Friday, August 31st. If you do not have a printer, some forms will be available in the classroom.
By this time, your student should have already submitted their membership information during class. If your student has not yet submitted their information, no worries! Please visit the link below and submit by this Friday, August 31st.
All-County & All-State Choir
