Once you have discussed this commitment with your child(ren), please complete this form. Performance dates will be communicated to families after choir begins.

Grade Level Recess Practice Times

By registering your child for choir you are giving them permission to be with Mr. Shaw during recess and are expected to attend.  

Grade 2 students will practice on Tuesdays in the music room during recess.

Grade 3-4 students will practice on Tuesdays in the music room during recess.

Grade 5-6 students will practice on Fridays in the music room during recess after All School Lunch.

All Grade 2-6 Choir Students: Students must attend before-school rehearsals once a month from 7:30-8 a.m., so we can combine the groups together and create two-part harmony. These rehearsals are scheduled on Thursdays at 7:30 a.m.

Early Thursday morning rehearsal dates for first semester are November 14, December 12, and January 16.

Looking forward to making a great season of music.

Sincerely yours,
