Big picture

Attention all Seniors

We still want to honor you and all you have done for us. WE WANT THREE PICTURES OF YOU: 1. baby or child 2. Middle school and 3. recent. Click here to upload to the google drive, or email them to me at lynnbrewer@tomballisd.net . We need them by May 13th.

We want your pictures

We are compiling pictures for the end of the year slideshow. If you have any pictures from a choir event we would love to include them. Click here to upload, or email them to me at lynnbrewer@tomballisd.net.

Look for a Question

We are taking an inventory on what choir items need to be returned to the school (eg. choir uniform) and what items in the choir room need to be returned to students (eg. jackets, personal music, etc). Look for a question on Tuesday through Google classroom. Please answer it before Friday.

Voice Lessons Still Available

Our voice lesson teacher, Miranda Newman, is teaching lessons online during the quarantine. If you are interested, you can email her at mirandaknewman@gmail.com. Click here for more information and a full bio..

Google Classroom Assignments for this week

This week's assignments are like last week's, except they will be for a grade. All of them are in google classroom:


Participation Grade (completion grade):

  • Daily Warm up: The warm ups will be like the ones from last week, (4-5 minutes piece). Use your school id to log in to edpuzzle, sing with the video and answer a question. 20 points a piece for completion. You must submit the question to receive credit.


Solo Upoad #1 (Rough draft)

  • Upload yourself singing your solo that you picked and analyzed in the inventory due tonight. It can be with the singer, but doesn't have to be. I will leave a critique and you will use those comments for your final upload the following week.


Parents can join the google classroom. Email me and I will send you an invitation.

Choir officer meeting Monday at 2:00

Attention Choir officers: Check your school google accounts for a virtual meeting Monday at 2:00.

Checklist for this week

  • Do your daily warm up. They are less than 3 minutes this week l They are meant to be done daily, not in a clump. They are great to do between subjects! You just sing and answer the question.

  • Read the comments I leave you in edpuzzle. Go to completed, pick one of the assignments and then scroll all the way down. That is how I am communicating with you daily.

  • Everything turned in before 5 on Friday, except the video, has been graded and returned. Make sure all of your assignments are returned. I left comments if you need to redo an assignment.

  • Make sure you are up to date with all of your choir assignments, especially warm ups and Sightreading assignments.

  • OFFICERS: Look for a meeting invitation.

  • Begin looking at Varsity audition information. Do a couple of the items this week: sightreading, audition cuts and the questionnaire.

  • Watch the videos I have provided in google classroom so you do the assignment correctly.

  • CONTACT YOUR TEACHERS if you have any issues via email, googleclassroom or their google voice number.

  • Look at your calendar in googleclassroom to help organize your due dates.

  • Breathe....it will be ok.

Trip Update

Cuttime just finished cleaning up the database on Friday. I will check the database with the information I pulled from the receipt book. Once that is done, I will send that information to you so you can check it against your records. I will also see if you would like to roll it over to next year's trip. Please remember that we cannot make any financial transactions until the school is open. There are several TISD organizations that are in the same situation as we and the district is trying to formulate a plan to help with refunds.
