Dear A Cappella Choir Members and Parents,
Before we leave for Winter Break, we would like to clarify some of the plans we have for when we return in January.
January 3 – 4:30-7:30 PM – Rehearsal (Dinner Provided) – CHS Choir Room
During the Block Schedule Pilot, we will not have rehearsal on January 4 and 6. On January 5, we will have the following rehearsal schedule:
8th Period Rehearsal – 1:17-2:42 – Juniors and Seniors ONLY
5th Period Rehearsal -9:28-10:53 – ALL A CAPPELLA CHOIR MEMBERS
We have 12 rehearsals from 1/3 until our first TMEA Pre-Performance. If additional rehearsals are needed, they will be called after school on Tuesdays and Thursdays from 4-6. It is very important that singers keep this time free. You can view our rehearsal schedule through this link:
Also, please make sure these performance dates are on your calendars:
1/9/2017 MANDATORY PARENT MEETING – 6:30 PM
1/22/17 Performance at UNT
Singers arrive to CHS to catch the bus having already eaten lunch (dressed in concert dress) 12:00 Noon

Depart from CHS immediately after school is out
(Dinner will be provided)

2/9-10/17 TMEA Trip
Performance is 2/9/17 at 7:30 PM
Transportation will be provided to and from all of these events. Details on the trip will be provided at the parent meeting on 1/9/17. Every singer MUST have a parent present at this meeting.
Parents should plan to be at TMEA to hear their singers perform. Parents are asked to stand and be recognized, and it is very important that the singers are able to see you there supporting them. To read more, check out the information that was sent home to you on the first day of school in August –
Also, we are thrilled to share that due to the support of CHS Administration, CHS Choir Boosters as well as the hard work of each of the singers in the CHS Choir Program, we will be able to provide the experience to our singers FREE OF CHARGE.
This is a tremendous honor for our singers, program, school and community. We know your singers will be responsible in keeping these dates cleared and making the most of the time leading up to this performance! It will be an experience they will not forget!
Have a wonderful, relaxing break!

Dear 2nd, 3rd and 6th Period Choir Parents,
A reminder that tomorrow is our Choir Picture Day during class. It is very important that your singer have their uniform with them at school tomorrow so that they can be included in their choirs photo in the yearbook.
The choir room will be open before and after school for them to drop off/pick up their uniforms.
Please let us know if you have any questions!
