Denton Tree Lighting on the Square

This year our choir will be singing as part of Denton's Holiday Lighting on the Square! We will be singing outside in front of the Bayless-Selby House Museum at 6pm. This event requires us to be assembled and ready 30 minutes before our performance. All students should be there by 5:30 (look for Mrs. Stewart on the lawn with a PCE sign). We will be finished around 6:20.

There is free parking in the lot by the museum. Note that the streets surrounding the courthouse square will be closed so you might need a slight detour to get to us. (Click the link above that says "Bayless-Selby House" for directions.)


Because it will be cool and growing quickly colder as the sun sets, students should dress in (school appropriate) cold weather clothes. No need for choir tshirts (see note below) or even school shirts as they will be hidden under coats and such. Hats, gloves, hoodies, scarves, coats, parkas, eskimo suits - all acceptable. Festive wear is also acceptable (Santa hats, reindeer antlers, etc) as long as it doesn't interfere with students' voices or their ability to hear.

Keep in mind when deciding on clothing that between waiting for our turn and the end of our performance we will have been outside for almost an hour. (Brrrr!)

Choir Shirts!

Our shirts have been delayed by a few days due to more than one circumstance. If you have NOT filled out your online order form, click the link below and submit it before the end of the school day on Thursday.

Please note that this shirt is not an "event" shirt, but will be considered our choir uniform for the remainder of the year. Shirts are $10 each and should be ready for us to wear to next week's concert at the school.

Here is the link to your choir shirt order form. You also have the option of purchasing more than one shirt so that your family can support our choir at events and concerts this year. If you have more than one child in choir, please help me out by filling out a separate form per student.

Because of the delay, we are extending the deadline to pay for your shirt to next Friday, December 11.

NOTE: The plan is for this shirt to be our choir shirt for next year as well, so for our 4th grade friends, this will hopefully be the only time you will need to purchase a shirt!

Annual Winter Concert/Paloma Creek Tree Lighting

This is our big, end-of-semester concert. We will be performing at our school and inviting friends, family, and our neighborhood to join us as we "sing" in the season. Our Student Council will be selling hot cocoa and you might even catch a glimpse of Santa!

The big event will be Thursday, December 10 at 6pm. Choir students should meet on our PCE stage no later than 5:45. We will wear our choir uniforms (new choir shirt and jeans - long-sleeve black or white undershirts are acceptable to wear if desired). We will end the choir's portion of the evening at or just before 6:30.

HOA Clubhouse Caroling

Our 4th appearance at the Paloma Creek HOA Pictures with Santa event! We're excited to return. We will be meeting and singing in the early afternoon (time TBA very soon) on Saturday, December 12. The event is at the Paloma Creek HOA Clubhouse behind 7-11 off S Paloma Creek Boulevard and Bluebird.

Students should wear their choir uniforms (new choir shirt and jeans).

End-of-Semester Choir Celebration

In place of our regular choir rehearsal, on Wednesday, December 16 we will have our end-of-semester choir celebration. We will take the time to enjoy each others' company, have some sweet treats, and celebrate all we have accomplished this semester. Be looking for an email next week to sign up to help with either your presence or with food/supplies.
