Our Pre-Festival Concert on March 5th is quickly approaching. Lincoln Elementary is preparing their show and will be on stage until 6 pm so this will push our start time to 7:15 because we need to set the stage and then practice. ALL CONCERTS ARE AT THE HIGH SCHOOL THEATER!
Here are the details: This concert is REQUIRED
Guys: arrive at 5:55 to help stage the stage (6-6:15) and then practice from 6:15-6:25.
5th Hour: arrive at 6:20 to practice from 6:30-6:40
1st/3rd Hours: arrive at 6:35 to practice from 6:45-6:55
6th Graders: arrive at 6:45 to practice from 6:55-7:05.
Since practice is happening – parents, please DO NOT ENTER THE THEATER until 7:05. This practice is necessary without the added distraction of people coming in and the noise it naturally creates. If we are able to begin at 7:15, we should end about 8:00.
Students should wear their ALL BLACK clothing/shoes. Guys will add the bow ties and ladies the scarf.

Mrs. Barbara Schenck, Director
Dear Parents & Students,
Welcome to 7/8 choir! This is a new beginning for all of us in our new room! I am so excited to have you in class and hope you are ready to take a chance at achieving more than you could imagine. You will work individually to improve your singing and understanding of music and we will work together to create blend – which produces beautiful music. Come prepared everyday to try your best!
There are several key words and approaches to learning we will focus us this year. First, you will always be asked to THINK! It is my favorite word (thanks to my mom) and thinking helps us stay focused. We will focus on Springbrook PRIDE: Productivity, Respect, Integrity, Determination and Excellence in our classroom, the hallways, the bathrooms, the cafeteria and in every conversation with every person.
Listed below are several procedures to help you understand how our class will function.
