    Materials

    Each student will be assigned a folder. Folders may be taken home to practice music, but must be brought back to school every Thursday for practice. If your folder is lost a $2 new folder fee will be charged. The students also need to bring a pencil and water bottle to each practice. An after school snack is permitted as long as it is finished before rehearsal begins.


    Performance Attire

    A uniform look is an important part of a good performing group. Choir students are required to purchase an Eagle Choir shirt for $10. If your child was in choir last year, the shirt has changed, so please purchase a new shirt. Students also must wear black bottoms (pants or skirts) and black shoes.  No flip flops please! When dressing for a performance one should look dressier than you do on a regular school day.

     

    Attendance

    Being a part of a performing ensemble can be a lot of fun, but it is also a serious commitment for both parents and students. In order to be prepared for performances students must attend rehearsals regularly. Attendance will be taken each rehearsal. More than 2 unexcused absences per semester will result in removal from the group for the year. If a student is absent from school on a choir day, please bring Mrs. Marsh a note or email and the absence will be excused.

     

    Parent Pick-up

    Choir practice will end promptly at 4:00pm. Parents should pick up their child in the bus circle.. Please do not be late. More than 2 late pick-ups will result in your child being removed from the group.  No supervision will be available for younger brothers and sisters so please have them ride the bus or be picked up from school at the normal time.

     

    Behavior 

    Students must be on their best behavior for rehearsals and performances. Inappropriate behavior will not be tolerated. Students will receive one verbal warning and one parent phone call. If inappropriate behavior continues the student will be removed from the group.
