Dear Parents and Students:
As we enter our last full week of classes I know that many are relieved to have made it through testing, prom, and the multitude of other activities leading to the end of the school year. Thank you to all who assisted during our last weekend of hosting the Spring in the Park Music festival on Friday and Saturday. We have a few upcoming rehearsals as we prepare our final concert. We are keeping extra time to a minimum as we know how busy everyone is this time of year. Please mark your calendars and be present when we do need you in rehearsal as we have not scheduled any spare time.
Jazz Choir Auditions
A big thank you to all who auditioned for the 2016-2017 Jazz Choirs. We are going to have terrific ensembles. We heard all that we need to and WILL NOT hold callbacks as originally scheduled on Tuesday. We should be able to announce by the end of the week.
2016-2017 Choir Placement
We are listening through voice evaluations and sight-reading test to determine placement for next year and anticipate being able to announce this on Friday, May 20.
Booster Club Interest Survey
The Panther Choir Booster Club is hard at work planning for the upcoming school year. Please take a moment to fill out THIS SURVEY concerning ways that you might be able to assist the boosters in the upcoming school year.
Choir Banquet is on Friday, May 27 at the Colleyville Center. Invitations began going out last week and we will continue passing these out today. Tickets are $30 per person and need to be purchased by May 20.
Student Leadership Application
This week we will begin the process of selecting Student Leadership for the upcoming school year. One of the primary goals of our program is to build effective leadership skills in our students. Please see the information and online application located on our website HERE.
