Please remind your kids that Monday is the deadline for two events. All choir students were invited to turn in a video performance for our Karaoke contest. Details are posted in their Google Classroom. (This is optional). Videos are due by Monday!
8th grade students who are interested in being in Show Choir in high school must turn in their audition recordings by Monday too. Please encourage your kids to try! Show choir builds lifelong friends, teaches students how to organize their time, and establishes a strong work ethic within a child. Attendance and grades are higher for students who participate in show choir.
Happy Easter everyone!
He is risen!!
Mr. Baker just sent out an updated date for high school show choir auditions! This will give our kids more time to turn in their best work. Please pass this on to your 8th grader! Thanks!!
Mr Baker and Mrs. Manglos would like to meet with the 8th grade students on April 2nd @ 2 pm

Shhhhh Top Secret: 8th grade Choir Parents will you encourage your kids to go the extra mile and complete the audition recordings for show choir next year? A lot of self doubt keeps our students from trying! Usually we bug the heck out of them personally and remind them that they ARE good enough, smart enough, and talented enough to do this, but we can’t get to them like you can! Making the recording takes time and effort…which doesn’t come naturally to middle school kids, so a little prodding from you will help them! Instructions can be found on this feed or in their Google Classroom. These are due Thursday so if you accept this secret mission you better get to work!!!!! Thanks for your help!
This is an optional assignment for our choir students. We have a lot of stars and are hoping to see many video entries. There is a deadline so please pass this on to your child for us.
KARAOKE CONTEST ANYONE?
Here are the rules:
1. Select a song that is OBVIOUSLY school appropriate! With or without accompaniment.
2. Find the best minute and 30 seconds in the song that will show off your voice.
3. Practice like crazy!
4. Make a video of yourself performing the song. Video creativity is a plus!
41/2. There are no other rules so be creative!
5. Attach the video to the assignment in Google Classroom and submit it by April 13.
The top videos will be put out for friends and family to see on the choir website and Facebook. Positive comments by your adoring fans will influence the final decision by two highly qualified mystery judges. No negative comments will be approved for posting.
Results will be announced by April 17th. First second and third place winners will receive a $25 iTunes gift card!
