Greene Machine Auditions!
Auditions for the Greene Machine Show Choir will be on Wednesday, September 4th. This is an auditioned extracurricular group that is open to any student at the Greene School. Students who are interested in auditioning will need to get an audition packet from Mrs. Anderson (5th grade choir director) or from the office. We will have a mandatory clinic from 3:00-4:00 p.m. on September 3rd where students will learn the dance for the audition and then students will sign up for a time to audition on the 4th. The sign-up sheet will be located outside of the choir room. UPDATE: students who were in the group last year should attend the clinic and auditions. They will all be invited back to the club this school year.
There are so many ways you can get involved at the Greene School. Our PTO offers many programs from whole school events like the Walk-a-thon to classroom activities facilitated by homeroom parents. Below you will find information and links to get involved!
