Webster Choir 2019-20

 

Meets on Tuesdays 2:45- 4:00.

Starting September 10th. Permission slips must be returned to Mrs. Lowman before your student may participate.

There will be an activity bus for those who take the bus to school.

Scheduled is our annual winter concert at Webster Elementary on December 12th at 5:30, which is mandatory for all choir members.

We will also perform at the Air Force Academy to sing the National Anthem with other choirs from around the area  This is not a mandatory event, but a great experience. Families are invited to attend this event. Ticket are $13.00 each family member including the choir student. Forms will be sent home the first rehearsal.

The only cost to be a member of the Webster Wildcat Choir is to purchase a choir shirt and black pants.   Parents may purchase a shirt to support our group. Shirts cost $8.50 and must be paid no later than September 20th.   Please complete the permission for and have your student return it before or on August 30th. Without this form they cannot start choir until it is turned in.  

  • Please print all information on the permission slip, especially the email.  This is my main form of communication with parents. 

  • I will be using Class DoJo for attendance, positive attitudes, singing expectations and behavioral issues.  I will be sending you email to sign up for this tool of communication with you. Our 4th grade and some of our 5th grade teachers use Class DoJo as well.
