Get ready for Get Fit Day! We have had a wonderful week and are excited to kick the season off with our first 'home' football game tonight! Di Voce and Ovation did a fabulous job performing in the pep rally this morning and made us proud of the program we support. Good luck to all of our singers who will be on the field, dancing, cheering, marching, or just showing your panther pride and supporting the team tonight! Have a great time! This weekend is one of our most important days of the school year. Please look at all of the information below and feel free to reach out with any questions or concerns!

September 8, 2018 | 10 am - 2 pm | CHHS Choir Room

"Get Fit Day" is HERE! Our Booster Team has done a wonderful job with planning to make sure the process is smooth and easy for you all! We use this day to take care of all forms, fees, uniforms, and information to support you and your singers throughout the year. Please make every effort to attend tomorrow. We have scheduled a time to attend based upon your singer's choir class period, but feel free to come any time between 10-2 if the scheduled time is not available for you. If you are unable to attend Get Fit Day, we will be able to accommodate a limited number of students for uniform fittings at Open House on September 17th.

Thank you to all the parents who were able to join us this past Thursday for our New Parent Meeting. It was wonderful getting to meet each of you and we look forward to knowing you more over the coming years.

New Choir Parent Information

- Update Charms Info -

As a choir program, we use an online system called Charms to help with our communication, uniform check out, and much more. While we try to keep the information accurate and up to date on our end, we occasionally run into difficulties with the technology or incorrectly input information. We ask that all parents follow the instructions linked below to ensure we have the most accurate information possible so we can be in contact when necessary and keep you up to date on CHHS Choir. If one of your students has already gone through this process in the classroom, make sure they share their password with you!

Charms Update Process

- Private Voice Lessons -

We are privileged to have three outstanding voice teachers on our campus that offer private voice lessons to our students during their choir class periods. These lessons will help develop students singing and literacy, prepare students who are participating in the All-State and Region 9/10 processes, expose and engage students in solo singing, and are one of the fullest ways to better the individual voice. Any students who are interested need to fill out and return the forms linked below to Mr. Gilliland. We honor requests on a first come, first served basis, and we try to offer this opportunity to as many singers as possible. Our voice teachers will be in al classes this coming week to perform for our students and answer all questions! While these lessons are tuition based, we have scholarship opportunities available through the CHHS Choir Boosters to help support our singers in the best ways we can.
