We’ve had a great week here in choir beast land as we’ve jumped back into the swing of things! In case you are looking for something to do this weekend, the kids (I can still call them that right:) ) over at high school hit the ground running as well as they’ve been preparing to put on their performance of the hit musical “Newsies”! They would love to see you there! Here’s a little bit of info to pique your interest!
This Disney Broadway production is based on the newsboys strike of 1899 in New York City that changed the child labor laws forever. It’s filled with song, dance, drama and romance as Joseph Pulitzer is taken on by a group of ragamuffin kids.
Tickets are on sale through the website northridgetp.ludus.com for $12 each. Tickets at the door will be $15. Bring the family for a night of great entertainment and support the Middlebury theater program.
Good luck to our NHS performers and hope you all have a great weekend!
And just like that we’re in the swing of things again! Coming home today with your daughter/son is a parent letter detailing important dates coming up this semester, so be on the lookout for that today! However, just in case the locker elves happen to get a hold of it, I’ve attached a copy here for your convenience. Here we go!
2nd Semester Start Off Parent Letter
While you’re hopefully enjoying lots of family, food, and fun times today here is a link to some photos from our Christmas Concert to bring some more smiles as well! Merry Christmas from the NMS Choir Beasts!

Thanks parents for stepping up and volunteering. We have all volunteer shifts covered. The only area we are short in is the clean up crew. These are people who stay after the show and help us pack up, take down decorations, and load boxes of costumes and props. If you would be able to help help out in that way, please sign up on signup genius or shoot us an email. Thanks! PS Donations are beginning to trickle in but we are a far cry from the $1500 mark. PSS Tickets are here! They will go on sale Monday for $2.00. We will sell them in class. Just remember to tell your child what show to buy them for: 4:30 or 7:00 p.m. HO HO HO! See you soon!
We sent home a parent letter Monday that listed the volunteer positions that desperately need to be filled for next week’s concert. Unfortunately we have had only one reply. Parents we need chaperones for all 3 grades during both shows!!! This has never happened. If we don’t have chaperones then the kids will have to sit with you in the audience until it is time for them to sing. That would be very disruptive to the show. We can’t leave them unsupervised while we are on stage directing. Please considering helping out for one show. The openings are listed under the SignUp Genius tab on this page. Most of you will be at one show anyway. What’s one more hour? Think about it and sign up asap. Thanks again. Signed “2 trembling directors”
Please remember your dinner donations for the Christmas Concert. Our bill will be about $1500 and we can’t afford to pay for all of the kids ourselves. 🙂 Every donation, large or small will be appreciated. You can send in your check/cash anytime this week or next. The sooner the better (for our mental state!). Thanks in advance for your generosity. Mrs. A and Mr. N
Even though we’re all probably working through Thanksgiving leftovers still, the NMS Choir Christmas Concert is just around the corner! Coming home with your daughter/son today is a parent letter detailing dates/times for rehearsals and concerts as well as some notes on where we are lacking in volunteers. We are in need of Concert Chaperones for all three grades, especially 7th and 8th grade show #2 (see sign-up genius for a full listing)
Just in case some forgetful little elves forget to bring it gift home to you, here’s a copy of the letter attached for your convenience! 🙂
