Good morning! We hope you all had a wonderful and relaxing weekend! We apologize for the delay in the newsletter this week. Panther Chorale performed in our GCISD United in Song Concert on Friday with Grapevine HS, each of our district's middle schools, and the Silver Lake Elementary Choir. It was such an amazing concert and an amazing opportunity to hear each of the incredible things happening around our district. We are truly blessed to be a part of such a supported and strong arts system at GCISD. Thank you to our administrators, our students, and our parents for all that you do to help us be successful! Please take a few moments to read the newsletter and stay up to date on all of the important events coming up!
Performing students will be able to join their families and friends for dinner prior to the concert, but each student MUST have a ticket to receive dinner. Tickets sales close on December 7th! Buy Today!
*Thank you for your generosity in providing extra tickets for the singers of the Dallas Street Choir. There are a few tickets still available to accommodate one of the singers on this evening. Please consider donating to allow each member of this wonderful group to join us in our dinner!
