Well, what's the quote from the Robert Burns poem? "The best-laid plans of mice and men oft go astray..."
Pictures have once again had to be rescheduled. [Insert laughter and/or eye rolls here]. Those of you that know me will know that this change in plans absolutely drives me up the wall, but it is what it is. :)
The new date is Wednesday, February 26 during classes. That is a week from this Wednesday. Due to a late change in plans for the CHS Preview event tomorrow, principals from both campuses have asked that we reschedule to accommodate this event and its activities. Working late in the day today with administration from both campuses, we tried to find a way to make it still work this week, but it was just not to be. You'll remember that we had already rescheduled to this week after the Bad Weather Day on Tuesday of last week.
I apologize for any confusion or inconvenience. Students may still continue to bring their uniform to school tomorrow to store in the choir room regardless of this change in date.
Thank you for your patience and understanding.

We highly encourage your student to attend an All-State Choir Camp. These camps greatly improve their competitiveness and preparation toward the All-Region & All-State Choir audition process. They will have a blast and be months ahead of the competition.
We have taken the time to compile a list of the camps that we are aware of, so that you can make an informed decision as to which camp best suits your family's summer schedule and budget. The spreadsheet containing all of the pertinent information can be found via this link.
Please be aware that most camps have a registration deadline of the first or second week in June (most by 6/15) and that many fill up in mid-February.
The audition results are posted below.
Important information for acts selected for the show:
- All members of each act must be academically eligible to perform on 2/24. That is determined by the third six weeks report card and/or the ability to regain eligibility with the fourth six weeks progress report.
- If you are performing with an accompaniment track of any kind, you must get an MP3 file for it to Mr. Gilmore no later than 1 PM on February 18. You may email the file or bring it by the choir room on a CD or flash drive.
- Your act must be present for a tech rehearsal on Saturday, February 22. We will have a sign-up sheet for rehearsal times in the choir room on Monday.
We want to congratulate everyone for auditioning. There were so many talented performers! The judging panel deliberated for hours in making their decision. Congratulations to the following acts for making it into the talent show (in no particular order):
- Emily Hurst & Brian Signorelli
- Hannah Templin & Yesenia Ledesma

Individuals with an asterisk next to their name need to see Mr. Gilmore on Monday before final approval of their act.
Everyone will need to confirm their acceptance in the talent show by initialing by their names on the list posted in the choir room on Monday. Failure to do so will result in the act being dropped.
