Message to Parents from the Choir Boosters
To our newest parents and to our returning parents, we extend you a warm welcome to the Choir family! We know you have lots of questions about this unprecedented upcoming year. To answer those we ask ALL PARENTS please attend the first Choir Booster meeting mentioned above. We will discuss what events have been changed, uniform requirements for concerts, upcoming activities, and what acronyms like TMEA and ACDA actually mean. (And the most important question of all: What will your child’s choir class look like during a quarantine? How will it actually work?) We will also cover how you can be involved this year and build community with us. We look forward to meeting you all!
Parent Volunteers! Those of you wishing to volunteer must reenter the raptor system each year. CLICK HERE to sign up to be a volunteer!
Can’t make the first Drive-Thru? There will be a second on Friday, 8/14 from 4-5 pm at the back door of the building (back cafeteria entrance).
We are kindly asking that you take care of all business online if possible. It’s easiest if you just drive up to get your music and shirt.
Charms is a music program based database that keeps track of all facets of the choir program, from uniform assignments to trip ledgers and more! We need to make sure your information is up to date!

You may also find these forms and a copy of the choir handbook at www.cphschoir.com/documents. We MUST have signatures on your student’s Handbook Contract and Medical Release form.

You may pay any fixed payments using PayPal. Students’ fixed payments should reflect the class they are registered for. If you believe there is an error for your student, please contact me immediately so I may help you. *If you are not in a varsity class (1, 6) and planning on auditioning for TMEA, a $30 fee will occur. If you would like to take care of this now, please contact me so I may include this payment*
4. Sign Up for Private Lessons
We are fortunate to have some of the best voice teachers in the state (if not country)! If you would like to sign up for private lessons, please use this form to do so. We will be able to provide lessons via zoom and have been successful in doing so all year. Please do not hesitate to ask us more! We recommend voice lessons for all students and they will be scheduled either during their choir class or before/after school. Click here for more information about our teachers!
