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!
