Bowie Choir Update

November 3, 2016


Monday: Eat some Pizza - Earn some dough for the Bowie Choir!

This Monday, December 5, will be Bowie Choir Night at CiCi's on Green Oaks, from 5:00 - 9:00. Tell the cashier you're there for Bowie Choir, and some of the proceeds of your meal will go to the Bowie Choir Department!

Tuesday: Angel Tree Donations Due

We've had a good start on our Angel Tree donation. Please consider giving a dollar or two (or 5...or 10) for our 7 year old female angel. Our choir officers will be going to purchase gifts for her on Wednesday!


Wednesday: Rehearsal for the Holiday Concert

Wednesday, December 7, from 3:00 - 5:00, we will rehearse in the auditorium in preparation for our Holiday Concert on December 8. Please be there right at 3:00 so we can try to finish up early! This rehearsal is MANDATORY - roll will taken and a grade will be given.

Thursday: It's Concert Time - Is Your Uniform On Point?

Our holiday concert is in SIX days! If you need to hem or iron your uniform, or if you need to purchase black shoes, NOW is the time to do it! Waiting until the day before is never a good plan! We want to present ourselves in a professional and conscientious manner, and taking pride in our appearance is part of that. Please refer to the handbook for hemming instructions and shoe choices.

Volunteers Needed For Concert

Parents - if you're able to volunteer to help our Booster Club Officers in preparation for the concert, watching classes during the concert, or helping serve following the concert, please email ROBIN DARWIN with your name and contact information!

Holiday Concert

Friday: The Best Way to Spread Christmas Cheer, Is Singing Loud for All to Hear!

Friday, December 9, from 6:00 - 9:00, we will have a movie night, featuring the holiday movie ELF! Wear your favorite school appropriate jammies! Bring your favorite snack to SHARE, and don't forget drinks! Ice, cups, plates and napkins will be provided - and maybe some hot chocolate if you've been good this year...

THE HOLIDAYS ARE HERE! Help us by doing what you already do on Amazon...SHOPPING!

Our Bowie Choir Booster Club fundraises throughout the year using Amazon, but the holidays are a great time really boost our support!

Simply use this link (you can bookmark it as your Amazon page and never worry about it again) and buy items as you normally do - there's nothing else to do! Using our Amazon Associates link doesn't cost you anything at all, and we get a portion back from Amazon! (Note: We have no record of what is purchased or who has purchased, so your information is secure)


Solo and Ensemble Competition is Right Around the Corner!

The competition is in February, but we must submit participant names in early January. If your are interested in singing a solo or being in an ensemble to be presented in front of a judge for helpful critique, the deadline to sign up will be Tuesday, December 13. You will be given music before the holiday break, and expected to learn it on your own. We will work with you to polish your song, but you must take the initiative to get the notes and lyrics learned.

The choir department will pay your fee for entering the contest. However, you will be responsible for paying your accompanist, which will be around $35.00. Don't miss this opportunity to improve your vocal skills!

Activity Fee FINAL DEADLINE Looms

As of this writing, there are still students that have not paid their Activity Fee in full. This $50.00 is required by all students. You can check your finance balance in CHARMS. If you've paid a partial fee, it is listed in "Miscellaneous," and you owe the balance. If you haven't yet paid anything on your fee, this needs to be done ASAP. At least $20.00 must be paid to be able to sing in the concert on December 8.
