Wondering about Lettering?

Whether you are new to Walton Chorus or not, there are always questions about Lettering – what do I have to do, how many points do I need, how do I get points recorded, and more. Here are some of the details you may be wondering about lettering.

All chorus members may qualify to Letter by using a merit point system.

To qualify for a letter award, a choral student must:

  • Sing in all concerts, extra rehearsals, and the Georgia Music Educators Association Large Group Performance Evaluation.
  • Exhibit exemplary behavior and attitude.
  • Earn 100 letter points – 45 of these points must be earned through fundraising.

All requests for points must be turned in by April 3, 2020.  Lettering points will not be accepted after this date.

For more details, look for item 10 – Lettering – on the Forms page at waltonchorus.com.

Tour Choir Rehearsals Every WEB from 1:15 – 2:15 PM

Note: The original time was incorrectly posted as 1:50 to 2:15. The correct time is 1:15 to 2:15.

Tour Choir rehearsals for the France 2020 trip begin Wednesday, 8/14 and continue each WEB from 1:15 – 2:15 pm. If you have mandatory labs, etc. from other academic teachers, please let the directors know and plan to get information from a friend.

It is already time to think about roommates and chaperone groups. Parents: if you plan to room with your child, will you let the directors know as soon as possible?

We are excited to begin this journey!
