Choir

 

* Choir is open to all fourth and fifth grade students.
 

* Choir provides a participation opportunity for students interested in performing in a vocal group. Students will be accepted based on interest, responsibility, and behavior.

* The same expectations apply to choir as to music class. Behavior problems will not be tolerated. I reserve the right to remove students who do not meet these expectations and do not participate as they should.

* Regular attendance is expected. In fairness to all members, only 1 unexcused absence is allowed per grading period.

* Choir will meet from 8:00 - 8:45 a.m. on Wednesdays. There are three performances scheduled this year. The first performance will be on Tuesday, December 19, 2017 with the fifth grade band, and the second, our spring performance on Wednesday, April 18, 2018 also with the fifth grade band. All concerts are at 7:00 p.m.  Our final concert will be for grades 3, 4, and 5 in May (Date TBA) at 9:45-10:25 to encourage participation in elementary band and choir for next year.

* You may drop your student off at the side auditorium door as early as 7:50 a.m. for choir rehearsal.  I will meet your student in the foyer to let them in the building. We will start promptly at 8:00 a.m. and  rehearsals will be in my room #303.

* Your student will be dismissed from choir and may go to breakfast or their classroom at 8:45 a.m.

* There is no audition process, although I may listen to your child to determine vocal range and quality.

 * In August, during the first music class, your student will receive an information sheet about choir.  If your student would like to join, return the second sheet "Choir Dedication Form" to become a member.   The first rehearsal for choir will be on Wednesday, September 13th, it is also listed on the calendar on my teacher page.  Forms must be turned in to me before OR on this first rehearsal day.
 
Please contact me if you have any questions through this website on the Contact Me page.


 
 
Choir practice will start for the first semester on Wednesday, September 13, 2017 and will continue on every Wednesday until after the holiday concert.
 
Please come to choir prepared to participate in a group setting.  Choir members will have folders containing the music we will be learning for the upcoming concert.  Respect for ourselves and others is extremely important to make our choir exceptional.  We will work hard in learning our music and it will be a great experience for those who like to sing.
 
Please note this very important reminder:    
 
Parents - Please make sure that you are signed up for the elementary text alerts in the case of a choir cancellation.  Choir rehearsal will be cancelled if there is a 2-hour delay.  In the case of my personal illness,  Mrs. Luth will send out a text by 7:00 a.m. to notify you that choir is cancelled for that day.
 
 
Also please remember to check my calendar on my teacher page for upcoming events!
