Well another school year is upon us. I’m sure that we are all excited to be back and make 2013-2014 the best year ever.
For those of you that are returning, welcome back! This year is going to be amazing. I hope that you are returning with a sense of pride in our great choir program and a desire to work hard and be the best you can be. Remember that your success or failure this year is up to you.
For those of you just coming into the program at PGHS, I welcome you. You have big shoes to fill and an incredible adventure ahead of you. I hope that you will be willing to step into this new experience with a desire to do your best and be your best.

4. Parental Vote Form Choir Tour 2014
Please print, complete and return this form ASAP. I would strongly encourage everyone to be supportive of the proposal. Giving your support does NOT obligate you or your student to participate.
This year in an effort to conserve time and paper I have decided to post my disclosure documents on this website in a PDF format. I will not be distributing paper copies unless requested by the student. It is vital, however, that parents and students read and understand the policies, procedures and schedule required for each class. Please visit the menu and select the appropriate class to view the disclosure document. I will be presenting this information to the students in a powerpoint format during class. I will also be sending home a letter for parents. Please contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org with any questions or concerns.
Choir Tour Dates:
Earlier this summer I sent home a letter outlining dates for our annual choir tour. Unfortunately, I discovered a week later that a state competition had been scheduled during our spring break which will involve several choir students. Several other dates were considered but due a wide variety of circumstances the only other dates available are April 1-6, 2014. I realize that this is not ideal. Complete plans will be discussed at our parents meeting on September 25, 2013. If you have any questions or concerns please feel free to contact me.
Thank you for your support!
