Hello! My name is Beth Townsend and I am the music specialist/choir director here at Scott Elementary. I'm very excited for a wonderful opportunity for your 4th and 5th graders: choir.
Choir is not only fun, but it will give your students a chance to become more involved in the school and local community, explore diverse music, build vocal technique, and improve their listening and reading skills. This year, we will be adding a drama element. Stay tuned for more more details!
Choir begins Thursday, September 19th. Enrollment for choir will end Thursday, September 26th. Please have your student bring back a signed permission slip to me any time by that day. If your student participated in Choir in the fall.
Our first concert of the spring will be held Tuesday, December 10th at 5:30 P.M. in the sanctuary of Our Saviors' Lutheran Church. We will be performing for the Greeley Youth Arts Month Kick-off in downtown Greeley.
Choir is held every Tuesday and Thursday morning, as well as Wednesday afternoons. We begin at 7:15 A.M. in the Music room and I take them to their classes at 7:45 A.M. on Tuesday and Thursday. On Wednesday afternoons, we begin at 3:15 P.M. and stop at 4:00 P.M. Please pick your student up in the front of the school, and I must see you or your car before your child is dismissed to you on Wednesdays.
Choir members are expected to be on time, attend all rehearsals and performances (only 4 rehearsal absences are allowed), model Scott Star behavior, maintain their schoolwork, and give parents/guardians any Choir letters or information provided. Failure to do this may result in dismissal from Choir. Students may participate in Art Club and Fit Club as long as they balance each with attendance in Choir. They are required to attend last rehearsal prior to a performance. Please feel free to call (970)348-2262 or (970)348-2200 or use the Remind App for any emergencies.
I will use the Remind App to communicate any last-minute information. To join the Scott Star Choir Class, text the number 81010 and leave a text message saying @4762ba7. Also, you may go to the link https;//www.remind.com/join/4762ba7 Parents and Students will be informed of dress requirements prior to the performance. Parents must provide transportation to rehearsals and performances.
