I am excited to announce that we will continue our tradition of excellence with an Ellisor 3rd & 4th grade
choir! This choir is open to all 3rd & 4th graders who are interested. In addition to singing new and exciting songs,
the students will also be increasing their musical knowledge. This choir will hold several performances
throughout the year!
Third graders will begin rehearsing on Tuesday, September 6th, at 7:30am, and will continue rehearsing
every Tuesday. Fourth graders will begin rehearsing on Thursday, September 8th, at 7:30am, and will continue
meeting every Thursday. The morning rehearsals will not interfere with after school activities and what a great
way to start the day: singing with friends! Please make every effort to be here on time. Choir students may be
dropped off in the back of the school at the cafeteria. If you are early, please wait in the cafeteria until I come to
get you. If you arrive before 7:15am, you will need to wait with early morning child care until choir starts. There is
no payment needed, but please sign up online.
We will be performing several different times this year, and we would like to look as good as we sound.
An order form for a choir shirt will be coming shortly. Please order one, as we will be using this shirt as our
uniform. The students will NOT be allowed to perform without one! If the cost of the shirt is difficult for your
family, please let me know. We don’t want anyone excluded from choir because of a shirt. Besides the shirt,
our uniform will be blue jeans without holes. These items will ALWAYS be required for performances.
1. Students must be prompt. Choir begins at 7:30. We will not be able to count on buses arriving at the
exact time each morning; therefore, choir students should be car riders on choir mornings so that they
will be on time. Please make every effort to be on time!
2. Only 3 absences are allowed each semester. Absences from school are automatically excused and do
not count towards this. If a student is absent from school, they are excused from choir; however,
please send a note to let me know. Attendance is very important! Three tardies are equal to one
3. Students with disruptive behavior will be dismissed from choir. Choir is a privilege. When we are
performing, we are representing Ellisor and need to show pride in all that we do.
Email will be my primary way to get in touch with you. I will update any rehearsal schedule and keep you
informed about performances and other choir tidbits through a weekly email.
If you have any questions, please feel free to contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org .
