If you missed the Parent Meeting on Monday, April 13th, Parent Hershey Packets were given to child at lunch the next day. There is a label on the upper right corner of the packet with your balance due. Final payments are to be made by April 15th. Contained in the packet is the Field Trip Permission Form to be completed as well as the itinerary for the day. If your child did not get this packet, please ask your child to pick up this packet from the music department or click here for more information: Hershey Park Parent Packet
We will be taking orders for the Maple Point Music Sweatshirts "The Point is Music" for the trip.
Oh no. . . my child never turned in the Hershey Park Music Trip Form but NOW wants to go!
We will be creating a waiting list for our outstanding
musicians who failed to turn in the paper work. We will try to accommodate as many qualified students as possible. In order to attend this trip,
students must regularly attend rehearsal and know their music. Please click here for more information: Hershey Park Waitlist Packet
April Choral Updates
Chorus after-school Mondays 3-5PM
Thursday Mornings 7:15
Extra after school
Chorus rehearsals April 23 (all) & April 30 (7th/8th
Things will start to get busy for your middle school musicians,
especially if they participate in sports. Chorus will continue to rehearse
every Monday after school. In addition, we will offer Chorus Clinic every
Thursday morning starting Thursday April 9th. Students are not
required to come to morning Chorus Clinic, however, it is a great time for
vocalists to catch up that miss afterschool rehearsals or study halls. Of course
students should be practicing on their own using our online tools. We will add
two special Thursday afterschool rehearsals to put the finishing touches on our
concert. April 23 for all chorus students and April 30th for 7th
and 8th graders. Don’t forget to check out our choral spotlights.
The kids have been having a great time making recordings in study hall.
