A HUGE thank you to everyone who helped with Dress Rehearsal. It went very smoothly because of our volunteers. We could not have done it without you! First time we have ever been ahead of schedule!!
We discovered that many students need alternations with their apparel. Please check with your student!! The concert is Monday so do not wait!
1. Call time will be 5:00 pm. Please have your student bring their school work. There will be down time when they can do homework.
2. Cookie Donations:
a. Monday - Trebs
b. Tuesday - All Freshman
Each soprano/alto should bring 12 sandwich bags which contain 2 large size cookies in each bag. Please bring them with you at call time to the cookie table in the amphitheater. They will be sold at the concert. Homemade cookies are always the first to sell.
Each tenor/base should bring 1 case of water bottles.
3. Tickets are on sale now! Please go to mvchoir.org. All tickets will be reserved seating. Any unoccupied seats will be given to the stand by line at 6:50pm.
4. We REALLY need concert volunteers. If you couldn't help at dress rehearsal, now is your chance. Please go to https://www.signupgenius.com/go/4090D4AAFAA22AAFD0-20182
5. Trebs are in charge of clean-up. They will need 10 minutes after the concert to clear trash from the theater and classroom.
Dress rehearsal is MONDAY!!
Things you need to know.
1. Your student should have apparel. Please ask them!! There is some in the choir room that hasn't been taken home. And it probably needs alterations.
2. We need help! The more help we have, the faster it will be for the students. https://www.signupgenius.com/go/5080e4da9ac3-dress

The Scrip cut-off each month will be on the 25th. All orders in by noon that day will be included in the order. I will plan on distributing cards on the first Friday of the following month. Once exception is December, that month the cut-off will be December 5th with delivery the week before school gets out.
To avoid wait time on cards (and just generally much more convenient), there are many vendors on the Scrip website that are offering "ScripNow", I would encourage families to look at the list which can be accessed here (under Narrow By, Card Type, select ScripNow on the left menu):
Also, here is a link to videos on Scrip which I think are helpful to understand the process if families would like to watch:
