Hubenak Choir News

November 30, 2017

It's beginning to sound a lot like Christmas...


With only 11 days until our winter performance, it's time to encourage your children to practice at home!! Our songs are being uploaded to Charms daily as I get to them today and tomorrow and students are allowed to take their folders home. Please encourage them to practice!! Read more details about our concert below.

A Winter Celebration

Tuesday, Dec. 12th, 6:30pm

11344 Rancho Bella Pkwy

Richmond, TX

  • Students must arrive at 6:10pm in the music room. Parents may head straight to the gym.
  • Students wear their FORMAL uniform to school that evening (not during the day)
  • Students not in attendance will be dismissed from choir immediately (no field trip the next day). This was a date that you signed an agreement for when you registered your child for choir.

(There will be a daytime dress rehearsal performance at 1:45 the same day in the gym. Parents are welcome to come. Students will wear their CASUAL uniform to school that day)

Winter Holiday Tour Field Trip

Information about our winter field trip went home on Tuesday. District field trip forms and $6 cash are due next Tuesday, December 5th. Chaperone spots are currently full for this trip. Click on the links at the bottom of this email if your permission slip and information page has been misplaced.

Practicing at home, solo auditions and practice logs

Our trip to Austin

I know the kids are super excited about our grant for the trip to Austin to sing at the capitol! I am, too! More specific details will be sent home after the holiday break. At this time, please mark your calendars for March 22nd. Chaperones will be selected with a lottery system for this trip. When information comes home in January, you will get a chance to put your name in the "hat" to become a chaperone.

Adult family members will be allowed to join us for the trip, but per the district policy, other siblings/children will not be allowed to join us. Please make sure that you are aware of this. Also know that all choir members will ride to and from Austin on our charter bus. There will not be any parent check-outs on this trip.

Lastly, this is a very critical time to be watching your child's agenda and monitoring grades and conduct!! The "choir semester" ends after our December concert, but the 9-weeks grading period goes all the way through January 19th (2 weeks after our break). This means that it is possible for you child to reach 4 marks in one area, or 6 marks over all in January and be removed from choir before this trip. I would be very sad about that!!

Charms Calendar

I was able to secure the Fulshear HS auditorium for our Spring Concert, so some dates have been bumped back a week. As you plan your busy Spring season, please make sure that you have the correct dates for our contest, concert and end-of-year trip!!
