    Dear 4th Grade Parents,

    I would like to extend a warm welcome to all of you and convey my excitement at the opportunity to work with you and your students this year. Music enables us to explore and embrace our differences as we work together to create a caring community where all children feel like they belong. Choir is the perfect place for students to practice cooperation and leadership as they develop their musical, physical and mental skills.

    Who’s eligible?

    Any 4th grader who enjoys singing and performing is eligible for membership. A choir permission slip is attached. The permission slip should be filled out and returned to your child’s music teacher before the first day of choir. 

    When does Choir meet?

    Choir meets Tuesdays after school from 2:45-3:45 pm. Choir rehearsal will be in the Music Room. All students must be picked up by a parent or guardian by 3:45 pm in front of the school. Attendance is very important. 3 absences and/or 2 late pick-ups* will result in dismissal from the ensemble. * Late pick-ups are counted at 4:00 p.m.
