Hello Fall... It's good that you are here.
Here are some updates for you all.
...fundraiser has officially begun.

HERE'S ANOTHER WAY TO SUPPORT THE CHORAL DEPARTMENT....
Welcome back to Chorus. This has been a fun first full week getting back into the swing of things.
Here are some things you need to know:
1. Canvas is where you will find the Chorus Handbook and Syllabus. Students will also have weekly assignments on canvas.
2. Please download the calendar of events for the year to avoid conflicts.
3. Chorus financial obligations are available to be paid on RevTrak. These consist of:
5. Upcoming.... auditions for District VII Honor Chorus and All-State Chorus.
More to come...
Unfortunately, due to potentially low turn-out, we have decided to cancel the show choir bootcamp that was scheduled for July 22 - 24, 2019.

Thank you for your commitment and dedication to the chorus program.
