Travis Tiger Choir Weekly Updates
September 18 - September 22
News for Everyone
What Did We Do Last Week?
- 1st Period: We continued working through sight reading in the G and F. We have also made progress working on Fall concert music and have one song completely learned on solfege! We also finished getting all students fitted into a dress.
- 2nd Period: The guys have diligently worked through sight reading in the keys of G and F. This week they began the transition from our prep sheets to putting concepts in their music in preparation for the fall concert.
- 3rd Period: We spent a lot of time working on details of the District Music. We also finished learning an entire piece for the fall concert on solfege.
- 4th Period: We have worked hard working on advanced sight reading exercises in the key of F. The students have also finished learning one whole piece on solfege for our fall concert and are roughly halfway through the other pieces.
Please continue to make payment installments as you are able.
I will be able to accept cash or check payments on Friday (September 22nd). Any payments via cash or check will have a receipt written and sent home with your child.
Congratulations to the following students who advanced to the Region Round in the Texas All-State Process!

- Due to a mishap, the "Week 5" assignment deadline has been extended to this Friday.
Assignments Past Due
- FORMS are now past due as a completion grade. If you're child has a "0" in Skyward, it is because I have not received their stapled form packet. The late-work policy does not apply to this assignment so as soon as your child returns the completed forms, the grade will be changed to 100. If your child has lost their forms, they are available on the choir website.
- Schoology Week 4 Assignment (Periods 1, 2, & 4). The late work policy is in place for all Schoology assignments. Students' lack of planning or technology issues are not an excuse for late work. Students have been reminded throughout the week, and are also welcome to use the classroom iPads anytime before or after school to complete their assignment.
If you don't use Google Calendar, check out the choir website often where events are regularly posted and updated.
