The Farmer and the Cowboy Should Be Friends Day

This Tuesday, November 12th is another dress up day and this time students are invited to dress up like a farmer or a cowboy.  Remember, dress up days are completely optional, and are purely a fun activity for the choirs.  Do not feel obligated to participate but we look forward to seeing how you dress if you do!

Please Take Note

It has been brought to my attention that some students are not showing respect to our facilities during rehearsal times each week whether that be using too much toilet paper and clogging up the toilets (yes, I said it) or playing with the church's decorations as toys.  Please remember that we are privileged to rehearse at Grace and that it is a church facility in which we want to show the utmost respect for our hosts.  Together we can show them what an amazing group of homeschoolers we are.

Also, there were several purses, backpacks, and drink containers left after rehearsal this week.  If you need an item before next Tuesday, you can always email me to arrange a time to pick them up.  Otherwise, you will be able to find them at the information table next week for your convenience.  

Update for Bravo!

We tried to hold a longer rehearsal to play catch up and it didn't work so we will stick with our rehearsals from 12:10 to 1:10 p.m. through the Christmas concert.  I will also be looking at a retreat day for some Friday or Saturday in January so be looking for that information soon.  This will be a choreography retreat for our remaining music and will hopefully help us get back on track.  Also, Tuesday, November 19th will be a dress-up day.  Please come to rehearsal dressed up in your uniforms.  This will be your chance to make sure you are ready to go with your costume attire for the concert.  In the meantime, please practice your choreography and voice parts for each song as often as you can (at least 7x a week preferred).  I was starting to see some progress this week so yeah for that.  See you next Tuesday!  Thanks!
