We've had a great first week! Your students are wonderful and I cannot wait to get to know each of them!

 - Students should have chorus materials in class on Monday, August 17th
 - Handbook forms should be returned no later than Wednesday, August 19th.
 - Polo shirt forms and $ are due on Friday, August 21st.

7th & 8th Grade Chorus:
Our year is off to a wonderful start as well! I am excited to see what your students can accomplish this year!

(See post below for all forms that need to be returned.)

- Uniform forms and $ are due on Friday, August 21st.
- Ladies sizing is very different from department stores, so be sure to use the chart
- If any boys missed the fitting day on Monday, they should come this Thursday, August 20th to be measured during Open House. 

Bel Canto:
The list for Bel Canto is posted outside the chorus room. Thank you to all who auditioned. We have limited spots available in this group and so many talented singers, so if you did not make it please try again next year!

Rehearsals will begin this Tuesday, August 18th @ 8:00 a.m.

Update from Week 1:

The chorus syllabus was sent home this week along with the handbook and a contact information magnet card for the chorus program.

There are 4 forms at the end of the handbook that need to be signed and returned by Monday, August 17th.

1. Student Info Sheet
2. Blanket Permission Form (for all chorus field trips this year)
3. Media Release Form
4. Concert Etiquette Contract

Don't forget to sign up for Remind text groups! I will send out concert, field trip, & class reminders this way. Parents, please sign up with your phone number, not your child's. (If you do both, that is fine.) The information for signing up is on the chorus contact card. It will also be sent out via email this week.

Thanks for your support!
