Choir Parent Information – 9-6-12

We wanted to make you aware of our Make-Up Parent Meeting for any parents that missed the August 16th meeting.  It will be on September 10 from 8:30 to 9:30 PM in the Choir Room following the CHS Curriculum Night.

Please remember to bring a case of water and the students materials (ream of copy paper, Kleenex (Vivace) and pencils (Madrigals) – if your student has not done that).  You can drop off these items in the Choir Room prior to going to your student’s first class.

There will be a brief review of the CHS Choir Handbook which you can find on the website at  There will be boosters available to take payments for the New York Trip, Respira Trip, Choir Fees and other costs.

Sponsorship Information

Parents, if you are donating a sponsorship, please note that donations directed to a specific individual by a parent or parent-owned business may not qualify as a charitable contribution.  Donations made by a parent or a parent-owned business to the General Choir Booster Fund should provide a tax benefit.  Please consult your financial advisor.


Respira Rehearsals will begin at 7 PM on Monday, September 17th.  We waited to begin rehearsals so the students could settle into their schedules and get the official approval for the trip to Branson.  The trip is officially APPROVED and we are looking forward to the year ahead!  A reminder, rehearsals are Monday 7-9 PM and Thursday 5:30 – 6:45 PM.   Please see the handbook for attendance policy.

We look forward to seeing you soon!

Joshua Brown and Will McLean
