Springbrook Middle School 6-8 Choir
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.
