This Week in Chorus…

  1. Fall Concert Reminders went home today! (8-2 yours will go home Tuesday) A digital copy can be found under Resources.
  2. The Walton Chorus Fall Concert is tomorrow, October 26 at Lassiter High School at 7PM. Seating is open; no reservations required. If you attend the concert (make sure you see Ms. G or take a selfie and show her Wednesday) OR watch the live stream at www.waltonchorus.com (if you watch the live stream you must write 3 sentences about your 3 favorite parts of the concert and give to Ms. G Wednesday) you will earn THREE HOUSE POINTS! There could be some major House upsets from this… 🙂
  3. Seventh and Eighth Graders: this Friday morning at 8AM is the next All-State Audition prep session. By this time your song should be just about memorized, and you should be using the accompaniment track moreso than the practice track.

Welcome Back

Welcome to the 2021-2022 year for Dickerson Chorus! We are so excited to be back in the chorus room and ready for an amazing year of singing and learning and fun!

Click the Handbook tab and Supplies tab for the information we’re going over in class this first week – grading, supplies, uniforms, and the calendar.

All students are required to complete the Chorus Handbook Contract with their parents, linked here and via the QR code below:

Welcome Back, Dickerson Chorus Family!

It’s going to be an amazing year, and I am so excited to kick things off this week! CTLS Learn is now going to now be the one-stop-shop for most information as well as live class sessions and independent learning time sessions, so make sure you familiarize yourself with this new platform, and ask if you have questions.

The chorus website will still be used for chorus announcements, documents, and future information about events, uniforms, and Show Choir.

Remember that these teaching and learning circumstances are new for us all. Patience and flexibility will help everyone have a fantastic singing year no matter what!

Eighth Grade Chorus: Please Read!

Eighth Grade Chorus,

Wow. It’s the last Friday of the school year, and your last Friday as eighth graders. It was soo wonderful seeing all of you on our final Zoom a little while ago.

Take a moment and check out the virtual chorus yearbook here if you haven’t already. You guys have written about some great memories, and I’ve been posting lots of photos and videos from this year, so it’s definitely worth a look!


You can now officially join the Dickerson Chorus Alumni Remind–it’s just for former DMS Chorus students! I send a few messages during the school year about special Dickerson Chorus events or performances. I love seeing alum!

Text: @dmsalumni to the number: 81010


I am still accepting 6th grade chorus letters!!! The letters you’ve dropped off & emailed are awesome, and we need lots more! The hope is for every single 6th grader chorister to have his/her own unique letter to keep.

Make a cool letter/note on your computer, add graphics and colors and cool fonts, and then just email it to me! I’ll print it out in color for next year 🙂 You can email it to me anytime–I just need them before school starts.


Finally, I’ve got GREAT news regarding Eighth Grade Trip refunds. Checks are currently being signed and will be mailed out next week! Thank you so very much for your patience during this crazy time with this. Our travel agent, CCSD, Mr. Hill, and myself worked hard to secure as much returned as possible.

A little bit about the refund specifics… Trip bags, shirt, and hoodie were purchased prior to trip cancellation and have been disseminated to students. We received full refunds from most trip vendors, and majority back minus nonrefundable deposits from a few vendors. Each student/chaperone will receive $479.98, about 70% back!


On a final, more sentimental note…

Eighth Grade Chorus,

Thank you for allowing me to share in this journey with you. It truly has been a pleasure. Music is powerful. The memories we have made together will forever connect us, though our time together as this group has come to an end. Congratulations on finishing middle school, and I wish every single one of you the utmost happiness and success and wonderful things to come. I will miss you very much. Now go forth and be amazing young adults! 

-Ms. Guerra
