Good Afternoon,
I hope that May is treating well thus far! We are in the home stretch of this school year! There are a LOT of updates and events happening in the next few weeks so please make sure you have read ALL of the information below.
Concert Details: The spring concert will be held on May 16, 2017 at 7pm. This concert will NOT be at Friendship Missionary Baptist. Please mark your calendars and set your GPS appropriately.   This event will be at University City United Methodist Church located at:
3835 West WT Harris Boulevard
Charlotte, NC 28269
Students
need to arrive at 6:15pm I will NOT be available after school to hold
students in my classroom. Please make arrangements NOW.
This
event also includes a celebration following that is potluck. We ask
that students last name A- M bring a sweet treat to share.
N-Z bring a savory treat to share.
Uniform Return: For
students who did not purchase a uniform this year, please return rented
uniforms no later than May 26, 2017. Dresses and tuxedos are expected
to be returned clean and on a hanger. All rented uniforms that are not returned will be charged a fee for the balance of the purchase and will have a student obligation on their account. If you own your dress or tuxedo,
please disregard this message.
Uniform Sales:  If
you own one of the new dresses, you may want to consider reaching out
to 8th grade students coming into the high school program to sell your
dress. You are welcome to put a flyer with the size, price and how to
contact you on the board outside of the HS Chorus room. Mr. Lafreniere
is going to let the 8th grade students know to begin looking in the next
few weeks. This makes you some money and saves them some money. What
you charge is up to you.
Bank of America:
Next school year, we are expecting
for each family(one or two people) to work one shift at the stadium to
help the NWSA Choirs. Any shifts exceeding that, will go straight into
the fund for the trip. Each student has been sent home with a form for which shift or shifts they are committed to and it has also been emailed home. It is available for print on the forms page for Charms as well. This will be essential to the success of our choral program.
We
are currently looking to find a few people to lead up the Bank of
America fundraising project for next year. It is a big job but, results
with an almost completely, if not completely paid for trip! It would
also be a big help! If you are interested in being a lead, please let me
know as soon as possible. *URGENT NEED*
Accountant:  NWSA Choral Arts boosters are looking for an accountant to do a one time pro-bono project for us. If you are or know someone who would be willing to help us out, please let me know.

Cam Newton Foundation Gala: 2016-17 Mixed Chamber Choir will be performing at this event on June 10 at the Charlotte Convention Center. They should be dressed in their formal attire and arrive at 5pm with rides waiting at 7:15pm. Students who drive themselves can park at the Nascar Hall of Fame and will be given a voucher for free parking. This is a huge prestigious event! Unfortunately only the students, director and another school chaperone will be permitted to be present for this event.

Graduation:  Just
a reminder that all students enrolled in Chamber Choir are expected to
be at graduation on June 14th. More information about call times will be
sent closer to the date.
Statement: Statements were sent home on April 25. ALL accounts need to be
settled prior to May 26, 2017. At that point, financial obligation
letters will be sent home for students with outstanding balances. Please
check your charms account if you have questions prior to contacting me.
If there are questions, I will be happy to point you in the direction
of our treasurers.
