Happy Friday!


I hope you have had a wonderful week! I know the chorus has had lots of things going on!


Fundraiser: We are still very far away from our fundraiser goal. The majority of students who have sent 10 emails have sold something! Please consider sending out emails. It will only take a few minutes and we are in desperate need! Those of you who have advertised our fundraiser, thank you so much. Those of you who have not, there is still time! Please log into your account at Raisy.co (not com). Simply sharing online does a world of promotion. Each item sold gives the choir a 50% profit. Our goal is $10,000 and we have not even reached $300. We desperately need a new sound system for our room and those who do not know, our copier just broke! Our funds are so important to keep this choir moving.


Uniforms: All uniforms have been ordered or reserved and will be here next week! Please note that dresses come in one length and may be very long! Please check the length of your dress prior to the week of the concert to make sure that it has been altered correctly.  Rented dresses may be hemmed as well.


Recommendation Letters: Tis the season to write college recommendation letters! If your student would like me to write a recommendation, please give at least two weeks notice. I spend a great deal of time on each student and need the time to prepare them correctly.


Volunteering: Don’t know how to help our choir? Are you interested in volunteering? Please let me know and I will pass your name along to our volunteer coordinator, Faith White. We are currently looking for helpers for our first concert!
