Welcome to Junior Choir

Junior choir is for students in Grades 1 and 2.  Students will get the opportunity to learn new music, further develop their singing technique, and perform for a variety of audiences.  If you and your child decide that joining choir is a commitment you are wanting to make, then here are a few things you’ll need to know.

Practices will be on Wednesdays after school from 3:35-4:15pm. Our first practice will be after school on Wednesday, September 26th.  We may also have a few recess practices to prepare for upcoming events.  Students are asked to make a commitment until the end of November and then may "renew" their committment to choir for the second half of the school year if they would like to.   

Attendance Policy: Choir begins at 3:35pm sharp, students will have enough time to use the bathroom and eat a quick snack.  Parents are responsible for making arrangements for their child to be picked up at 4:15pm sharp.  Students will be dismissed from the music room.  Please arrange a meeting spot with your child so they know where to find you. 

Those students in BLAST can return to the gym.  Blast Students MUST go to BLAST before coming to choir to check in.  It is very important that students attend each practice so they have enough time to learn the music.  If students miss 2 or more practices, they may not be permitted to attend and upcoming performance.

I am excited for this choir year and can’t wait to get started!

Sincerely,

Welcome to Senior Choir

I am so excited you have chosen to join us in this wonderful, musical experience.  We will be learning new songs and developing the art of musical performance.  The afterschool choir is for students in grade 3, 4, and 5 who have a desire to develop their musical talents.  Here are a few things you need to know:

Schedule  Choir practice is each TUESDAY afterschool until 4:30pm.  We may have a noon hour or recess practice to prepare just before some performances. 

Attendance Policy  Choir begins at 3:35 sharp on Tuesdays.  Students will have enough time to have a quick snack and a bathroom break before we begin our practice.  Parents are responsible for making arrangements for their child to be picked up promptly at 4:30pm.  Those students in BLAST can return to the gym.  (Please notify BLAST if your child is in this program.)

It is essential for each choir member to have sufficient time practicing each piece, and so students who miss two or more practices in a row may not be permitted to attend performances.  Students are asked to make a commitment until Christmas and then may “renew” their commitment to choir for the second half of the school year if they would like to.

Choir Attire  For performances, we look better as a group if we are dressed in appropriate attire.  Students will need to have a BLACK top and BLACK pants/skirt for performance.  The school will provide a music vest for the students to borrow to jazz up their outfit even more. 

I am looking forward to a fantastic session of choir!!  Thanks so much for your participation!
