Weekly Chorus Update: 8/30/18

Chorus Families,

We hope the start of the school year has been smooth for you and your students. Here are some updates for Walton Chorus.

Donut Mixer
All Walton Chorus students should wear their chorus shirt and stop by the chorus room upon arrival to school on Friday, August 31, 2018.  Chorus Boosters will be serving Krispy Kreme donuts and juice boxes from 7:45 – 8:15 am.  It is a great time to meet fellow singers from all the choirs and celebrate a terrific first month of singing.

Concerts Dates/Locations
Fall concert – October 9, 2018, 7:30 pm, Johnson Ferry Baptist Church
Holiday concert – November 29, 2018, 7:30 pm, Mt. Bethel United Methodist Church

Concert Chaperones Needed
We are looking for parents to chaperone the students during the Fall and Holiday Chorus concerts.  This is a great way to be involved directly with the students and be amazed at how the directors manage more than 450 of them! Please email Kat Wilson at katcwilson@gmail.com if interested.  Thanks in advance for your support.

Booster Donations
If you have completed the online Booster Donation Form form but have not remitted payment, please either send your check in to the Treasurer’s Box in the chorus room or submit via PayPal.  Thank you to those who have donated, as always, your support is greatly appreciated!  The Walton Chorus Booster magnets will be sent home with your student next week.

Reserved Concert Seating
Concert seating is limited! If you wish to have reserved seating at the concerts, please remember a booster donation of $250 or more is required. Learn more about donor benefits.

Women’s Uniform Dresses Are In!
All female formal uniforms have arrived! If you ordered one and have not received it, please contact Michelle Dobo michelledobo@gmail.com or 404-429-7355 (call or text) to arrange to pick up at her house 3345 Robinson Farms Court 30068. If you have already picked up your uniform, or when you do, please try on the dress and shoes and make sure everything fits before it is too close to the October concert and too late to order different sizes.

Spirit Wear Deadline Extended to September 7
Walton Chorus SPIRIT WEAR is available for order until 3:30 pm on September 7. Once our fall order is placed, spirit wear will not be ordered again until February. Be sure you get your long-sleeve T or hoodie for this fall!

Sing On,
Your Walton Chorus Booster Board
