Wow! I'm so sad to still have this be the main communication that we have with each other! I miss seeing my students face to face! Today is bittersweet as it is the day before we were supposed to go to UIL Contest and Sight Reading Competition tomorrow. Today would be full of stress and looks and excitement. We loved the music that we were doing and were making amazing progress before spring break. Tomorrow will find me with moments of sadness that I can't go through the process with this unique and special group of students!
Senior Choir Scholarship Forms are due today.
A-Side Auditions are due this Friday by 5pm.
PLEASE REMEMBER THAT ALL LATE WORK FOR THIS 6 WEEKS WILL BE ACCEPTED.
Please continue to communicate with Mrs. Ramos if you have any questions!
Zoom Class Meeting - The district is asking that we hold 1 Zoom a week. Attendance is not taken so no worries if your student cannot make the Zoom. For us it is more of a catch up with each other time than any type of instruction. I know other classes may have a Zoom at the same time. Please go to the class that you need the most. Some are trying to take AP classes or tests - please do what's best for your academic career at this point. Our Zoom time will come in another email as I am trying to secure some special guests for this week's Zoom!
**TOTALLY OPTIONAL! IF YOU HAVE OTHER THINGS TO DO BY ALL MEANS DO THEM! IF YOU WANT TO STAY FOR A COUPLE MINUTES TO SAY HI THEN DO THAT! NO PRESSURE!**

Choir Placement for Next Year: After much discussion at the district level, placement for those who are already in choir will be made based on their involvement in class thus far this year and sight reading component off of Sight Reading Factory they have already submitted during the At Home Learning. If your student does not have access to sight reading factory due to technology issues, then this will not be a component. They will not be penalized for not having access. Note: There are very few students that fall into that category (less than 5) according to school administration.
Choir Placement for Kids who are Not in Choir already (including incoming 9th grade students): these students will have a more extensive audition process which will be emailed to them via their middle school choir director.
Good News: I got word on Saturday that Mr. Russell will continue to be our accompanist next year! Yay!
