IMPORTANT: Be certain to check both the Choir Blog and Google Classroom for up to date in-person and at home learning assignments and other information!
NEW! ALL CHOIR CLASSES-WEEK OF SEPT. 21-25
Go to your NEW (Cohort A or B) Google Classroom, where you will find all assignments and information you need to complete this week’s work.
We have completed the practice track recordings and will be uploading them to the choir blog very soon. Once completed, we will be able to assign actually singing practice homework! YAY!
WEEKLY LESSON PLANS GOOGLE SHEET:
CLICK HERE to view all of our  in-class choir lesson plans, including our current week.
NOTE TO MORNING CLASSES: There are now two new tabs at the bottom of the lesson plans spreadsheet (for Treble/Anchormen Cohorts A and B) that will explain what you need to do for each day, both in-person and at home,  for Music Theory.
NEW! We have decided on our musical for this year and we will introduce the show to you now! Follow this link to learn about this important piece of work that is so fitting for the times we are in and allows us to consider social distancing and a smaller cast size, while utilizing a unit set and less involved costumes (and some of the best music one can sing!):
There will be an informational meeting about the show and the audition process on Thursday, October 8th from 3 pm – 4 pm either in the choir room or the theater, depending upon number of students interested.  The dates for the auditions, shows, etc. currently remain the same on the Choir calendar (fingers crossed!)
DUE BY FRIDAY! Attention Juniors and Seniors. If you would like to be a part of the Tri-M Music Honor Society (similar to the NHS, only specifically for musicians!), please complete attached form and turn it into the choir office by Friday, September 25th.  This is a wonderful addition to any student’s resume/college applications accomplishments list, and you get a pink cord to wear at graduation too! Details about this organization can be found HERE.
Also, all returning members must reapply.
Lastly, the service requirement has been suspended for the 20-21 school year.
Follow this link to view the criteria and to print the two page application. Also, if selected, there is a $20 fee.  CLICK HERE, or you can pick a hard copy up in class.

 

DUE THIS FRIDAY! MSVMA will welcome 100 singers in grades 9-12 to our Musical Theatre Intensive on Saturday, October 24 via a Virtual Conference.  We are delighted to have an incredible panel of clinicians including Catherine A.

NEW! ALL CHOIRS READ THIS FIRST PART,  THEN MOVE DOWN TO YOUR CLASSES INFORMATION FOR ASYNCHRONOUS LEARNING
As soon as we (your music staff) complete making part recordings and post them to the choir blog, you will be expected to complete learning assignments based upon these during your “at home” days. Your teachers began working on these on Wednesday while we are at school. Once completed, we will then have more productive and meaningful things for you to do on the days when you are not at school (known as “asynchronous” days).
Also, I am posting a link to our weekly lesson plans. That way if you are curious what we will be up to, or miss a day of class, you can look here!
CLICK HERE TO VIEW ALL OF THE WEEKLY CHOIR LESSON PLANS!
Lastly, be certain to check both the choir blog and Google Classroom DAILY for up to date async. learning assignments and information!
NEW! TREBLE CHOIR & ANCHORMEN ONLY
For your asynchronous learning on Wednesday, September 15th-Friday September 17th, if you have NOT yet completed your “5 Pictures” Assignment and/or your “Getting to Know You” assignments, please complete those by the end of this school week. These two assignments can be found in your Google Classroom.  Most of you have completed them!
Also, if you/your parent have not completed the “Emergency Information Sheet”, “Parent Volunteer Form”  and/or the iChat, please get these filled out by the end of this week as well.  These three forms are located under the “Pages” section on the right side of this blog. (#4, #5 and #6).
Please DO NOT work on the music theory (Breezin’ Thru Theory) assignment I posted on Google Classroom at home, as we will have 30 minutes in class on Thursday-A cohort/Friday-B cohort to complete this week’s assignment. Further, this assignment is not officially due until Sunday at midnight, therefore you also have your asynchronous day on Thursday/Friday to finish it you don’t get done during your 2nd day of class this week.
NEW! SINGERS AND ACAPPELLA ONLY

Lastly, JaiLynn has also posted your “Listening” assignment in Google Classroom so you should complete that by the end of the school week as well.
NEW! As we begin having assignments due for music theory (Treble/Anchormen)  and choral music history (Singers/Acappella), you may be wondering how these assignments are going to be graded.
It basically breaks down like this: In all choirs, your “regular” choir grade, which we are currently calling your “Participation Grade” will be worth 50% of your overall trimester score. This is the grade that started at 100 (hooray for everyone getting an A!) and we add or subtract points from this based on things like turning your beginning of year forms in on time, extra credit, attendance at any concerts in the future, etc.
In Treble Choir and Anchormen, your “Music Theory Grade” will be worth 30% of your trimester score.
In Singers and Acappella, your “History Grade” and any arranging homework that may get assigned will be worth 30% of your trimester score. This will be calculated as an average of all your homework scores along with any test or quiz scores over the course of the trimester.
The final 20% of your trimester grade will come from your Final Exam, which in Treble and Anchormen will be a Theory Exam, and in Singers and Acappella will be the Choral History Exam.
Late work will result in a lowering of the grade by 10% for each day that it is late. In general, we are giving you multiple asynchronous days to complete your work and, in the case of Music Theory (1st/2nd hours) you will also have time in class each week to complete your work during the non-singing part of the class.
Here is an example of what this looks like in real time: CLICK HERE!

Below is the most current scip form detailing what businesses have scrip and what percentage they give back to your account.
NEW PANDEMIC SCRIP INFORMATION
Mona Shores Scrip Participants,

We will need you to have your payment, cash or a check made out to MSCA, and form ready.  If you are unable to print a form, we will have one for you and ask that you take one extra copy for next time.  We will then bring your form and money into the building, fill your order, and bring your scrip back out to you.  Please check your order before you pull out and make sure it is correct. If you need a check made out, we will ask that you fill out a form that we will provide you stating who the check goes to and how much you need. 
This will be a learning curve for all of us and we sure do appreciate your patience!

Wednesday, September 9, 2020 Welcome (Back)!

NEW!! Welcome to what will likely be one of the most unique years of all of our lives. We are glad that you are have chosen to make this class a part of your day here at MSHS! For some, this has been a most challenging time, so let’s be mindful of each other, now that we are back together again. We plan to do all we can to make certain you are both safe and that choir is a home away from home, where you can just be yourself! 

NEW!! If you have not yet done so, please complete the  Emergency Information Record and the Parent Volunteer forms that I emailed you and your parent/guardian a few weeks ago. These two forms are due by this Friday (Sept. 11th @ midnight). +2 points on your grade! 

Additionally, the iChat form allows the district to complete a background check and must be on file in order to volunteer for anything school related…including choir! Turning in the iChat form with a copy of your parent/guardian’s drivers license will earn you an additional extra credit point. 

Here is a link to the “Welcome Back” letter I sent out, which contains links to these three forms, as well as other information: CLICK HERE

Links to all forms and other info can also be found under Pages on the right side of our choir blog. Use Pages to quickly find things like our calendar, scrip information, and “green sheets.”

NEW! We also need to collect your choir shoe money, $30 (if you are new) by Wednesday, Sept. 23rd. (+1 point  if returned by the deadline). Returning choir members, middle school choir members that purchased the official choir shoe in middle school, as well as current HS band members do NOT need to purchase shoes–you have them already (unless you want a new pair of course).

We will get you fit for choir shoes this fall. 

If you have difficulty meeting the deadline for the money owed, please have your parent/guardian email me, write me a note or give me a call. Or, just stop by and chat with me. We have ways to help you out if needed…no worries!
