Good Evening Parents and Students,
I hope everyone had a successful and productive first week of school! Your student was sent home with a copy of the Kerr choir handbook Friday. This handbook includes information about student expectations, uniform requirements, choir fees, the choir calendar and more. Please thoroughly read this information and return the handbook agreement form, found on the back page of the handbook, and choir fees by Wednesday, September 7th. For your convenience, I have attached a copy of the Kerr choir handbook to this email. It will also be posted on kerrchoir.com and google classroom.
As stated in the choir handbook, the first choir concert is very quickly approaching on September 26th at 7pm in the Centennial High School auditorium. All choir students are required to participate in this concert. Student uniform for this concert will be the informal choir uniform: choir t-shirt, khaki pants, and solid black shoes.
Kerr Choir is excited to offer the opportunity for individual student enrichment through on campus private voice lessons. Voice lessons help students gain confidence, have one on one time with a highly qualified instructor, address specific individual vocal concerns/struggles, and aid student growth on their vocal journey. More information about private voice will be sent home this week. Studio space is limited, voice lesson application forms will be evaluated on a first come first served basis.
Since Kerr is going to be a 1:1 Chromebook campus, technology will play a huge role in the Kerr choir department. All choir students are required to enroll in their choir's google classroom with their BISD email account. Students have received an invitation to the appropriate google classroom page. Please have your student accept the invitation or use the codes below to enroll.
