GOHS is also hosting a drill team competition all day. There will be numerous other students from various schools all over our campus. Our job is to remain only at our judging rooms to sing and then exit the building. We DO NOT roam the building or attempt to go to the competition. Students wandering around will be given a write up! Come in at the auditorium, go to your judges room, wait in line to sing, and then exit the building. Your ride should be waiting.

Below is the link for the google sheet with the schedule of solos. There are four judges. There are four tabs at the bottom of the document. Click on the tabs until you find your name and time on the schedule. We will go over the times in class next week but plan this weekend for transportation and what you are going to wear.

Solo Contest Schedule

Choir Spirit Wear

Our wonderful booster club has created a spirit wear store to order choir items that are not the official choir shirt for concerts, events, etc. We are so excited to have this option to rep choir all the time. There are shirt and sweatshirt options. Click the picture to see color options.

Take a look and get your CHOIR SWAG!

The link to the Booster Club website is found under the “Communication-Booster Club” tab on the menu of the website. Click the tab from the menu, scroll down, and click the booster website link. There you’ll see information about our upcoming spirit night and beneath that you will see a an icon for ordering spirit wear.

Spirit wear orders are due by November 11. THANK YOU BOOSTER CLUB
