Good afternoon, parents!
Competition season is drawing ever nearer, and with that comes all the logistics of making these events happen.
Attached you will find a document outlining all costume/hair/makeup policies for all students.
Please be on the lookout at the end of next week for an email outlining all the details of our first competition (2/11 at Manteno High School) including the whos, whats, whens, wheres, whys, and hows of show choir competitions.
Lastly, please be mindful of the calendar posted at http://www.bataviamusic.org/calendar.html
Mr. Barsch has done an amazing job of making sure that always reflects the most up to date information.
All rehearsals are mandatory. I understand that the students get sick (thank goodness most of us are over the terrible bug from last week) and that last-minute conflicts arise. But we have had absolutely devastating attendance issues this year. Just because we have rehearsal every day (or 4 of 5 days), does not mean that any of them are less important or that missing one is not as big a deal.
In our entire season so far, Swingsingers has only had full attendance at one rehearsal and Legacy has only had full attendance at three.
Show choir is a TEAM activity. When we have students missing it holds up the rehearsal process for everyone.
I am going to have a conversation with students about redoubling our commitment to these groups, especially as our rehearsal schedule thins out and our competition schedule gets rolling. Please do everything you can to support your student in getting to rehearsal on time every time.
Thank you in advance for your support!
I am thankful every single day for the opportunity to work with the incredible young men and women you've raised and remain astonished by their work ethic and talent. Thank you for sharing them with me for a couple months out of the year so that we can create something so unique and beautiful together. We are very much looking forward to our competitive season together.
As always, if you have any questions, feel free to reach out.
