Checklist for this week

  • Turn in your varsity audition ASAP. I don't want to miss anyone, but I have to start making decisions soon.

  • Catch up on your missing assignments. Go by what is in Edpuzzle and Sightreadingfactory. Not just google classroom

  • Read your edpuzzle comments for ideas. See if you commented on a warmup and then watch the video.

  • Plan to come to the google meet. You choir family misses you SO MUCH. Plan to come and say hi to your class. Reach out to choir friends to have them join you!

  • Read the officer information. There are several of you that would be awesome leaders. Read through the info. Watch the video and consider it.

  • OFFICERS: Look for a meeting invitation.

  • Breathe....it will be ok.

Google Classroom Assignments for this week

Several of you on your edpuzzle question said you liked the warm ups and you wanted to do something creative for the end of the online learning.


Warm up project

Remember all of those edpuzzle warmups that I made???? Now it is your turn. You will look through all my slides and find 5 of your favorites (yes...apples and bananas is in there). You will create your own warm ups using the slides and then sing the warm ups that you like.


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

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.

Trip Update

Everyone who was listed as going on the trip should have received an individual email from me about trip refunds. Please look for it in your email. If I don't hear from you this week, I will call you.

The policies will be evaluated on a month by month basis, so I will let you know if we are able to set them out July 4th.
