Middle School Choir Newsletter
Dear Choir Parents and Students,
I’m so excited about our middle school choir this year! Middle school choir consists of 2 different groups:
Group 1: Rehearses daily during 6th period, and participation is a significant part of each student’s grade. For this reason, attendance to each class is important, and excessive absences, even if excused, can affect a student’s grade.
Group 2: Sixth graders and those middle school choir students that are also participating in band will meet on Monday mornings at 7:15 in Love 101. On school weeks where Monday is a holiday, we will meet on Tuesday mornings at 7:15 in the choral suite. Although band/choir members are not receiving a grade, attendance to rehearsals is important, and students with perfect attendance will receive recognition at the end of the year.
Choir T-Shirts: Choir t-shirts can be worn on Spirit Days with traditional, non-distressed jeans, and we will wear them for concerts and competitions. The cost is $17, but if you paid for choir camp, your t-shirt is paid for. Other students will have their account billed unless you want to make other arrangements. Parents, these shirts are available for you also if you would like to order for yourselves—they are definitely in style on choir trips.
Concerts/ Spring Competition: Students showcase their hard work in the concerts listed on the calendar and in their spring competition. Students may perform solos and small ensembles at competition as well as participating in the large ensemble.
Attendance at all choir events is mandatory and is a part of the student’s grade. If we have additional performance opportunities during the year, a letter will be sent home and the information will be posted on Headmaster.
