Panther Choir Update 5/9/16
Dear Parents and Students:
We begin another busy week of AP testing this week as we forge on to the end of the school year. After-school choir events continue to be kept to a minimum during testing to assist our students in their preparation for exams. The voters of GCISD approved the bond package over the weekend that will bring several benefits directly to the Panther Choir Program. Stay tuned during the coming weeks to learn how this will directly benefit our program!
Auditions and End of Year Voice Evaluations
Voice Evaluations were due from all students last week. If this has not been turned in (electronically via Google Classroom) it needs to be done as soon as possible. Points are being deducted for late assignments at this point. We will be evaluating these during the upcoming week. If students have not yet completed their in class sight-reading evaluation it will be done during class this week.
Jazz Choir Auditions
Please see the AUDITION PAGE for information concerning auditions for Di Voce and Ovation Jazz Choirs. Sign up for your audition time for this Thursday, May 12 HERE.
Spring in the Park Music Festival
We will host two more days of festival this Friday and Saturday. We need student and parent help to make this major fundraising event possible.
All choir students are invited to the annual choir banquet on Friday, May 27 from 6-10pm at the Colleyville Center. This year’s theme is “Starry Night”. Students will receive invitations and information on reserving their tickets later this week. Tickets will be $30 per guest and due to the Booster Club by May 20.
Booster Club Bylaw Update
Our Board has approved several changes to our Booster Club’s bylaws, in order to help us improve the quality of the volunteer services that our board provides for our choir members. The proposed changes are available HERE. Our bylaws require that we give all our members a chance to review these changes before they are presented at the General Meeting (May 24) for approval. If you have any questions or concerns, please contact Robyn Schmidt at email@example.com.
