Choral Department Update - October 2018
October 31, 2018
END OF TERM 1: It’s been a busy fall! The term ends on Friday, November 2. Students should be checking Google Classroom and iPass to make sure all assignments are turned in. Term 1 Grades will be published in iPass on November 13.
LEARN ANYWHERE: We will be having a practice Learn Anywhere day on Monday, November 5. Students will have the opportunity to go through a sample Learn Anywhere assignment and discuss what types of assignments they may receive on Learn Anywhere days.
UNIFORMS: Unless your student has been contacted, uniform are ready to take home! Students cannot take uniforms home until they turn in the Uniform Utilization Agreement (in the Handbook). Students should try on their uniforms and let me know if there are issues. Students in tuxes need to provide a white, long-sleeved wing-tipped tuxedo shirt. Students in dresses should make sure the hem is ankle length. Do not cut the fabric when hemming. All students should have black shoes and black socks/nylons.
A Cappella Groups
She Major and Voices of Steel both recorded application videos for the Varsity Vocals International Championship of High School A Cappella competition. Results will be posted in mid-November. Right now, groups are working on competition set music and booking December gigs. Students sing holiday and pop songs around the community; follow them on social media to see when and where their next gig will be!
Both Chamber Singers and Treble Choir were thrilled to support the Warrior Marching Band by performing the National Anthem at the NESBA and MICCA Marching Band competitions.
WHS Theater Arts sponsored a trip to see Hamilton at the Boston Opera House in early October.
