It was so easy living day by day
Out of touch with the rhythm and the blues,
But now I need a little give and take,
The New York Times, the Daily News.

To Branson Students/Parents
Submitted by choirdad on Sunday, March 27, 2005 - 9:05pm General Choir Chat

Dear Parents/Students:

The time has finally arrived for our trip to Branson Missouri! We hope that everyone will have a great time and return home with wonderful memories of a safe, but tiring trip! We have a few last minute reminders:

  • Please be at the high school at entrance I by 4:15 AM Monday, April 4. Bring your luggage to the choir room for inspection. The bus will arrive at 5:00 AM, departing shortly thereafter, and it would be a shame if you missed the trip.
  • Please bring something for breakfast and a snack to share, it will be a few hours before we stop. The travel time is approximately 8 hours, not including stops.
  • You are not allowed to leave your car in the high school parking lot while we are gone. Please have someone drop you off at the school.
  • A final written itinerary will be given to everyone Monday night; however, if you want to check it out now, or parents want to know details, the itinerary is here on the web site.
  • The long range forecast for Branson (compliments of weather.com) shows a possibility for rain later in the week and temperatures in the mid to upper 60's and perhaps the lower 70's. Plan your wardrobe accordingly.
  • Lastly, remember that daylight savings time begins on Sunday, April 3. Our actual return time may be earlier than what was provided by our tour company.

A Holiday Message From Mr. Festa (Choir Booster President)
Submitted by choirdad on Tuesday, November 30, 2004 - 7:47pm General Choir Chat

Hello all, I hope you had a pleasant Thanksgiving break. A few reminders as we race towards the Holiday Break in a few weeks. First ISSMA, this is mandatory for 2nd and 3rd hour students. Please be sure to make your song selection from the approved list. As I recall the deadline for the applications to be post marked is December 4th…THIS SATURDAY!

           Second, we always need help in decorating for the Holiday concert. Mr. Emig spends countless hours of his own time, as does Tom Dobes, Mrs. Neiman and others. Please check with Mr. Emig and come and spend an hour or two, we would really appreciate the help.
