The Pride of Paloma Creek Choir

Spring Dates

Starry Starry Fine Arts Night

Our first performance of the semester is coming up soon! The Pride of Paloma Creek Choir will be performing for the opening of this year's Fine Arts Night on Thursday, April 7. Choir is the first performance of the evening and we will start promptly at 5:30. Choir students need to wear their choir "uniform" (jeans and this year's choir tshirt - new students should see me for details on how to get one) and meet on the front steps of the school at 5:15. We will sing the school song, National Anthem, and then a couple of pieces that we are preparing for our big spring concert and NRH2O. Our portion of the evening should be finished by 5:45.

There are so many great things happening for our Fine Arts Night! Read below to learn more about this exciting event!

Official NRH2O Date Set - Trip Deposits Due Next Week

We have an official date for our choir festival/competition at NRH2O in North Richland Hills! Mark your calendars for Thursday, May 19! We will leave right after school starts that morning and return around 6pm that evening.

Our choir has a long running tradition of receiving superior (the highest) ratings at NRH2O! We will perform two pieces for a judge, receive feedback in a mini-session immediately following our performance, then spend the rest of the day enjoying our time together in the water park.

This year, we will be competing in the new "Invitational" division where choirs are judged by a higher standard, closer to what students will experience with UIL competitions in middle school. I'm excited about this new level of competition and I am completely confident that our students have the ability and discipline this year to do well raising the bar!

As mentioned in our last newsletter, this trip does cost money. The entry fee (for the park + competition) is $22 (chaperones have a discounted fee - see below). Additionally there is a transportation fee for our buses. The grand total individuals have to pay is to be determined. We raised just over $200 at our Fuzzy's Taco fundraiser in February! We will also have an afternoon fundraiser at Sonic in April (stay tuned for more info on that!).

To help plan ahead, we will be collecting a trip deposit fee of $10 beginning next Monday, March 28 through Wednesday, April 6. We can accept cash or checks (made out to Paloma Creek Elementary). Once we know the final cost of the trip after our Sonic fundraiser, we will let everyone know how much more will need to be paid.
