At a Glance:

Welcome to Choir!  For all things Choir related, you'll find it here!   Please take time to get our calendar dates added to your phone, which can be found on the left side of this page.  As future information becomes available, it will be posted here. 



       1.  Students are welcome to stay in the choir room after school until bus leaves, and should bring something to eat before getting on the bus.  If students prefer to go home to get ready (provided they have time), they need to be back no later than 15 mionutes before the bus leaves, performance ready.   

       2.  All ladies are to wear their curlers in their hair throughout the day.  Moms are encouraged (if needed) to come in after school to help daughters with their hair. 

       3.  All students will be performance ready when they step on the bus.  Students are responsible for every part of their outfits.  Failure to take care of them, or lose them will result in students paying for lost/damaged pieces.

       4.  Absolutely no food will be allowed on the bus or in our competition home room.  Water bottles are okay.

       5.  Students will be accountable to the "good conduct policy" at all times, to include being on time for all check points.

Food for thought:  Courage means you get back up after you've been knocked down.  Courage means you face your fears and move past them.  Courage means you stand up and remain confident in the face of your bullies.  Refuse to let your inner voices kick dirt in your eyes or spew lies in your ears.  YOU are profoundly important, and no one can take that away from you.  So rise up, wrap yourself in courage, and face your day!
