What. A. Week!!! At first it started off a bit shaky. There must have been a full moon, a shift in the cosmos. or the kids must have been dipping into the Halloween Candy when no one was looking. Things just didn’t seem to be falling together. But that was Monday. As the week progressed everything just got better and better! Notes, rhythms, harmonies, and overall sound just started to pop… in a good way! If you could have only seen your kids working this week! We are so proud of their progress and can’t wait to let you in on the gift they have been preparing for you. Each choir is nearing full memorization, and every vocal part is holding it’s own. Mrs. Stump (our favorite accompanist) will be joining us next week to help us put the finishing touches on the show. CAN’T WAIT FOR SATURDAY!!!!
Thursday we had a wonderful party after school with our 7th grade choir kids. We had about 85 students join us. They all dressed up in some pretty “interesting” costumes. We all played photo scavenger hunt. Some pretty zany pics were submitted. I’ll share a few at the bottom of this post. Pizza, brownies, and tooooo much pop were had by all. 🙂 It was a great party. We sure love our kids! Thanks for playing taxi so that we could be with them.
A few items regarding SwingFry….
If you missed the parent letter we sent out this week, you will find it on the previous post. It includes the times and locations for dress rehearsal and concert day.
Thank you to those of you who sent in bake sale donation slips. The SwingFry Committee seems to be very short in the “Pie, Sheet Cake, and Breads” Department. If you haven’t gotten a chance to submit a donation, you can just email me email@example.com and put Pie in the subject line. Jot me a note about what you will be bringing and I will pass it on to our hardworking committee. Just a reminder: You can drop off your bake sale goods to the high school on Friday, Nov. 9 from 3 – 7 or Saturday, Nov. 10 from 10 – 2 p.m,
If you ordered tickets, you should be getting them soon. We have been passing them out all week when the High School sends them to us. I believe we only have one batch left. They should be distributed on Monday! Again, if you didn’t get a chance to order tickets in advance you can get them on Saturday. Don’t worry about it!
And now, we are happy to announce our TOP CHOIR BEASTS for this week. These kids stood out as leaders, helpers, and students who are working to give their very best. Great job kids!
6th Grade: Abigail Miller, Dominic DeHaven, Kendall Miller
7th Grade: Juliahna Smith, Owen Leisure, Abbigail Hunt
8th Grade: Rafael Garcia, Samantha Wiley, Ashlee Jackson
And here are some party pics!

Are the choirs having practice on Tuesday after school or just Thursday for dress rehearsal? The school event calendar shows a practice on Tuesday.
Tues is a raft practice at NMS. Thurs is a dress rehearsal at NHS.
I see the times are incorrect. I will ask the office to correct their calendar. Thanks!
