NEW The annual social event of the season is upon us once again…The fall Choir Cookout is going to be held on Sunday, September 22nd from 3pm-5pm at the Mona Lake Boat Club. Stop in and enjoy free food, flowing conversation, even toss a frisbee or get a volleyball game going if your little heart desires. DON’T BE SHY-YOU CAN COME AND GO AS YOU PLEASE SO AT LEAST MAKE AN EFFORT TO STOP IN AND EAT!

Hello all and welcome back!

The Haunted Hall is a nonprofit fundraiser, organized and managed by MSHS Teacher Mrs. Brower and her husband. A small number of organizations are invited to work at the event, with all profits being split among the organizations.

Students can work, or anyone else can also work on behalf of a student. The amount of money earned in a season is totaled, and then the dollar per hour amount is determined. Each student receives the amount they earned per hour, and this money is deposited into their scrip account. Families who really get involved have made over $1,000 is just one season! It’s possible!

Work includes setting the hall up, “scaring” during the event and then tearing it all down at the end. Time and ½ is paid for set up and teardown! Here is a link to view all of the relevant details. They include things like waivers, so make certain to look this over prior to just showing up for a shift:

NEW! Some students did not stop by and pick up their choir uniform during early registration. According to the welcome back letter I emailed earlier this summer, failure to do so will result in -5 points on your grade unless you contacted my via email or my school phone, dropped choir or in the rare occasion that you joined choir after my packet was emailed to you.  We will be bringing in our uniform chairperson to fit you for a uniform/shoes at a future date TBA.

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. We have ways to help you out if needed…no worries!

PLEASE READ THIS PRIOR TO VIEWING NEXT SCHOOL YEARS CHOIR LISTS!

PLEASE BE CAREFUL: Soon the choir lists will be posted. Please make good decisions about using technology to share your emotions! Sharing your happy or sad thoughts (excited or angry thoughts) can be very dangerous to your relationships with your friends in the Performing Arts Department, as well as your future in the Choir and Theater Department.

If you don’t make the choir that you have been hoping for, please take some time away from your phone and your computer. ALSO, if you DO get in the choir that you have been hoping for, be careful of what you put into print! You could easily crush a friend if they didn’t get in the choir of their dreams. Be conscious and caring about your relationships with your friends. If you spew poison on Instagram, SnapChat, Twitter, Facebook, group texts or other social media know in advance that you will be burning many bridges. THINK – WAIT and then respond. This is written with love from your director! This IS NOT the end of the world.

I’d like to thank everyone that worked hard in preparation for their choir auditions.  This was an extremely difficult list to make in many ways.  Please understand that if you feel some disappointment because you do not make it into the choir that you dreamed you would I sympathize with you.  I have had this experience too from time to time, so I do feel with you.  The good news is, you are still in choir–no one can take that away from you (well–occasionally I do, but it’s rare!)

I ask that you trust in me to have made the best decisions for the choir and to know that these decisions are made on so much more than just how you sing or sight read or test on music theory.  These lists were VERY difficult to make and I realize that no matter what I do, I cannot satisfy everyone’s desires. If you did make it where you wanted to be Congratulations! Now the hard work begins!
