  • Choir

    Our Cougar Choir will begin on August 31.  Rehearsals will be every Tuesday from 2:45-3:30pm. If you are interested in joining us, please return the permission slip.

    Please note there will be a pick-up requirement in place. To be respectful of time, we are asking you to please be prompt in picking up your child. If you are unable to pick up your child by 3:30, you may register your child with Before and After Care, allowing them to stay and wait until you are able to get to the school.

    Creekside has one choir, open to any student in grades 3, 4, and 5. Our choir is known as the “Cougar Choir.” The choir will perform a Winter and Spring Concert.  Dates will be determined soon.

    Due to the nature of choir, it is very important that each child be present for every rehearsal possible, and may only miss 3 rehearsals in total. When one child is gone, it effects the entire team. Of course, exceptions may be made for sick leave or other unforeseeable events. Please contact me when possible regarding absences.

    The Cougar Choir is an extra-curricular activity, and well-mannered, I CARE, classroom behavior is an expectation. Students should come to chorus with a positive attitude and ready to work! Students who find difficulty following classroom rules for expected behavior will be asked to withdraw.

    Chorus Attire:  Students will wear a chorus t-shirt that will be worn at each of the concerts.  Information on the t-shirts will be sent home after the first rehearsal.  I am asking for a donation of $15 to cover the cost of t-shirts, music and fees for an accompanist.  If your child already has a cougar choir t-shirt that still fits, the suggested donation is $10

    Should you have any questions, please feel free to e-mail or call me. I am looking forward to an amazing year of singing!
