We need everyone that wants to help to sign up by 6:00 pm TONIGHT so we can decide if this is going to happen. If we don’t have enough workers they’ll ask another group.

October 2019

Welcome to the month of October. I, for one, am amazed it is already here. The last weeks have just flown by and before you know it, we will be at Thanksgiving break.

The fall concert was great! I am so proud of every choir and their hard work to learn the music so quickly. Most choir programs won’t have a fall concert until mid-October so going in September is pretty impressive!

October 3: Fall Festival of Choirs
This is a combined concert featuring choirs from Grand Oaks, York, Clark, and Cox.
A Cappella and Statesmen are the choirs performing from GOHS.
The concert begins at 7 pm and all are welcome to attend
GOHS students that are performing need to wear choir shirt, jeans, shoes and the call time is once again 5 pm to set up the stage for the other schools to practice.

October 15: Mock Auditions for Region participants
The students who are moving to the Region Auditions on Oct. 19 will have mock auditions the Tuesday after the 3-day weekend. Please come to the choir room straight after school so we can begin ASAP.

October 16: Spirit Day @ Crust Pizza
Booster Club Spirit Day at Crust Pizza on Rayford Road ALL DAY
Make sure you drop your receipt in the jar to help out the booster club which comes back to our students. Tell your neighbors and family members to visit Crust that day!

October 17: York Choir Concert
We will be hosting York JH Choir that evening. Concert begins at 7 pm. Officers are called at 5 pm to set up the stage. Any student wanting to help set up is welcome.

October 19: Region Auditions @ Klein Forest
Information for participants will be given out at Mock Auditions
We will travel by bus to the auditions. Please plan on dropping off your student at GOHS by 6:30 that morning.

Welcome to September

The choirs are off to a fantastic start for the 19-20 school year. We are making sounds and preparing for our first concert in just a few short weeks.

This past Tuesday was the parent meeting and many of you showed up. Thank you for supporting your student and our choir. Whether you were at the meeting or not, all students should now have the choir handbook, choir year calendar, emergency form, acknowledgement form, and technology form. Please look over those items and return the EMERGENCY FORM (white) & ACKNOWLEDGEMENT/TECHNOLOGY FORM (red) completely filled out. Students will be unable to do anything off campus until the forms are turned in. Forms were due August 30th.

Inside of the handbook you will read information covering numerous topics. Please familiarize yourself, especially with policies regarding attendance and expectations. There is also a choir fee, so read up on that and make sure you pay it!
(STUDENTS WILL NOT RECEIVE A CHOIR SHIRT UNTIL A FORM OF PAYMENT IS MADE TOWARDS THE FEE)
