One of the goals of the Eagleside Elementary Cowboy Choir is to give students another outlet for musical expression and performance. This afterschool activity will give musically driven and talented students the ability to perform music of different cultures, languages, and style all while having fun with their peers. The choir will be performing for school functions and activities, community events, and special concerts for Eagleside families and friends.
The Cowboy Choir is open to 3rd, 4th, and 5th grade students. We rehearse every Wednesday after school from 2:30 p.m. to 3:20 p.m. in the music room. Because we only meet once a week, it will be very important that they attend every rehearsal. If your child has to miss rehearsal, written notification through a letter or email must be given to me or it will be marked as unexcused. If your child has numerous unexcused absences, I will make a phone call to find the best solution for your child to either remain in choir or be removed from choir. The first day of rehearsal will be Wednesday, January 10th, 2018.
It is important to remember that choir will be based on eligibility. If your child is struggling academically, I will recommend that he or she not attend rehearsals until they are able to make adequate academic progress. .
In order to ensure your child’s safety and to participate in choir, please fill out the attached form and return it to me by Tuesday, January 8th, 2018. The Eagleside staff wants to make sure your child has the proper arrangements to get home after rehearsal. I ask that you also communicate with me or the school via email or phone message if there are changes in transportation arrangements.
If there is no school that day, there will be no rehearsal. If rehearsal is cancelled I will let you know as quickly as possible so you can make arrangements.
Thanks again and I look forward to creating a wonderful choir program for your child.
