THS Choir Newsletter

June 2022 edition

Welcome New Choir Students

We hope everyone is having a relaxing and wonderful summer. We want to welcome our new THS choir students! We are SO excited you joined our choir family. During school, we will send out a weekly newsletter, but here are some summer items.

Need lots of help w/ July 4th flags

The choir sponsors a community fundraiser called “Flags Across Tomball.” Community members in the Tomball High School attendance zone pay a yearly fee to receive a 10’ flag in their front yard 6 times a year and the next holiday is July 4th. Money raised from this fundraiser keeps fees low and defrays costs for the students participating that are attending the choir trip. Students who meet a participation threshold determined in the fall, are eligible for a discount on their trip to Los Angeles.. Students not attending the trip will receive 1 letter jacket point per holiday. We will set the flags out beginning the evening of Friday, July 1st, and want them all set out by Saturday morning. We will work with your schedule. EMAIL me at lynnbrewer@tomballisd.net ASAP if you are interested.

You will need:


  • A truck or minivan/SUV with captain’s chairs. The flags are 10’ long.

  • A towel.

  • A hammer.

  • A screwdriver

  • Water in case you get overheated.

Cut Time Account Update

Cut time is our primary form of communication, including emails, finances, assignments, letter jacket points, uniforms and more. All parents AND students have an existing account or were sent an invitation to register. Student invitations were sent to their sec.tomballschools account. If students are unable to access it, email me the student's personal email address at lynnbrewer@tomballisd.net and we will resend the invitation. Tomball Memorial Band created a great info sheet on how to register for Cut Time, which is attached below. The procedures apply to the THS choir accounts.
