Chorus Attire

Happy Friday! A few announcements about chorus shirts, hoodies and formal uniforms:

  • Items cannot be taken home until they have been paid for. If you still owe money for a shirt, hoodie, dress, or tux, please turn that in as soon as possible. Online payments closed after due dates, so all money will now need to be turned in via check or cash.
  • If you purchased a garment bag, they are not in yet
  • Tux ensemble ties: the wrong size ties were delivered; the correct sizes just arrived and will be handed out on Monday
  • 7th and 8th grade: try on your new dress or tux ensemble–most will need to be hemmed. It’s recommended you avoid cutting off material in case you grow or pass your uniform down to a sibling or friend. Try to make alterations where you just fold the material under.

This Week in Chorus

Happy October!

 

SEVENTH GRADE AND NEW EIGHTH GRADE STUDENTS: Formal uniform and garment bag payments are due tomorrow. Click the Uniforms tab for the informational paper that was sent home. Payments can be made online or via check/cash.

 

ALL-STATE AUDITIONEES: Our first audition prep meeting is tomorrow at 8AM. You can come to as many or as few as you want until auditions in November, however, the more you attend, the more confident you will be! Bring your All-State folder.

 

DISTRICT HONOR CHORUS SINGERS: The first morning rehearsal is this Friday at 8AM for the BARITONES. As of now, we are still waiting on music to arrive. Please plan for us to still rehearse, and if music still has not come in by Thursday, we will cancel and reschedule your rehearsal for another time.

Fundraiser Turn-In & Honor Chorus/Sixth Grade Statewide Results

CHORUS FUNDRAISER TURN-IN IS NEXT WEEK! Here’s what you need to know…

  1. Chorus turn-in is September 12 and 13 during classes
  2. Each student should be turning in ONE check with all fundraiser items added together and ONE check with all donations added together. ONE CHECK.
  3. Instead of a total item sheet in your packet like in previous years, this year it is an electronic form that will do the math for you! You just enter how many of each item you need total. This Order Sheet should be completed at home, printed, and placed in the packet to be turned in. Click here to download and complete the Order Sheet. Don’t forget to print!!
  4. PARENTS, we need lots of help on chorus fundraiser turn-in days. Students have been doing a great job getting donations and selling fundraiser items  but that means a lot will be turned in!! Please click here to sign up to volunteer.

 

District Honor Chorus and Sixth Grade Statewide Chorus results can be viewed  by clicking each respective event under the Events tab. 

Annual Music Fundraiser Underway!

Today we kicked off our annual music fundraiser in each chorus class. Every year, our chorus students raise thousands of dollars that go directly back to providing them the best musical instruction and opportunities possible.

This first selling weekend is HUGE — sell to neighbors, grandparents, coaches, scout leaders, family friends, your parent’s co-workers, and more! I’ll do our first numbers check on Monday–which class will sell the most items?!

DONATIONS!!! When making your “sales pitch,” don’t forget to talk about donations. With donations, 100% goes to the chorus program.

Don’t forget to collect money from people as you sell! Money goes to your PARENTS, who will write ONE BIG CHECK to Dickerson Middle School on the turn-in day.
