Panther Choir Newsletter 10/8/17
Congratulations to all of our students for an outstanding Fall Concert. We are proud of the great work and progress the students have shown in the first weeks of school and excited for the year ahead. Every choir performed with professionalism and fine musicianship. A huge thank you to the Panther Choir Boosters for your support throughout the start of the year and on Tuesday night. We hope you enjoyed seeing some of the fruits of the recent GCISD Bond! All of our students were wearing our brand new uniforms and the new risers and shell (all bond purchases) were used for the first time at the concert.
