Random Lyrics

It's the heart afraid of breaking
that never learns to dance
It's the dream afraid of waking
that never takes the chance
It's the one who won't be taken
who cannot seem to give
and the soul afraid of dying
that never learns to live.

Old Business:

Choir Camp this past summer went well. It was put together quickly. Had 29 students attend. We hope to get it in place sooner for next year. Hope to include incoming freshman students. The students that attended the camp will perform at the potluck.

Each Choir Student was asked to sell one Entertainment Book. The deadline for the sale is Sept. 12th.

Potluck will be held in the Hall of Flags on Saturday September 7th from 4-6 P.M. Purpose is to help make incoming parents and students feel welcome. Drink and place setting will be provided. Each attending family was asked to bring a dish. Nametags will be issued according to the grade level of the child. Students will perform.
