*****CORRECTION--OUR FUNDRAISER WILL RUN FROM 12/6-12/12****
 

November 28, 2017


Welcome Back Choir Families,


I hope you all had a wonderful holiday with loved ones!


I would like to touch base with you on events happening in December. We are traveling, fundraising, and of course performing our holiday concert this month.


Field Trips

December 15, 2017- 7th & 8th grade choirs will walk to Four Corners Health Care Center to spread holiday cheer and sing carols for the residents. Concert dress will not be required, just wear something festive.

December 22, 2017- 7th & 8th grade choirs will tour the elementary schools for recruiting efforts. Students will walk to Needham for caroling, picked up, and bused over to Riverview for more caroling. Once again, wear something festive.


Permission slips are attached to the letter and will be made available on the website. Permission slips need to be turned in by December 6, 2017 to allow appropriate time for transportation to accommodate and confirmation for our administrative staff.


Fundraising

Miller Music Department will be collaboratively fundraising for trips this year and will begin with a Holiday Candy Gram Fundraiser. The fundraiser will run from December 6th-12th. Students will take the orders and organize the distribution process. However, we may need parent help acquiring the candy canes and chocolate. Molly Jensen (our instrumental director) and I are looking for the most equitable way to get the candy and this could mean going to Sam’s Club to purchase in bulk. We do not have a Sam’s Club card and would need a parent volunteer to help us out on that end. Please contact one of us if you can help us!


Concert

Our Winter Vocal Concert will be on December 20, 2017, 6:30PM at Miller.

Call time- 6:00PM to rehearse and clarify logistics.

Concert Dress- Black and White with festive accents (christmas colors).


***Please avoid parking at the Cowboy Church or along the streets for this performance. New laws are in effect for Junction Street and we can no longer allow parking along the streets at Miller. Apologies if this creates any inconvenience and please plan accordingly.


Thank you for all your support. Please contact me if you can help with fundraising or for questions/concerns.


Musically,

Ms. Holly Begay
