Principal's Message


Audience: Toriann Garner

I am so sorry to say that the Santa Monica Pier Field Trip set for tomorrow, Saturday, May 6th, has been cancelled due to inclement weather.  All money turned in will be fully refunded, unless otherwise communicated by parents.


See you all at our End of the Year Concert on Friday, May 12th at Hillside Middle School at 7:00 pm.  Call time for all choral students is 6:00 pm to rehearse.  There will be a mandatory rehearsal on Thursday, May 11th from 3:10-6:00 pm.


I am deeply saddened by this turn of events.  Thank you all for your support.

~Mrs. Garner

Audition Expectations for Concert Choir and Choral Ensemble 7/8 grade students only:

There are three components to this audition process:

1.  Melody - Students will be asked to sing a song of their choice that shows the range of their voice.  Students may sing A Capella or with a karaoke track.  The karaoke track can be played on the smartboard in the classroom.  

2.  Match Pitch - Students will be asked to match pitches that have been played on the piano and sing them back.  

3.  Singing Harmonies - Students will be asked to sing "Row, Row, Row Your Boat" with another student to demonstrate the ability to sing in harmony.

Parents and friends will wait outside while the students audition.  The audition will take no more than 10 minutes.  This is a quick, fun meeting for Mrs. Garner to meet the incoming choral students and to place the current students looking to move up into higher groups.  

*All 6th grade students begin in Mixed Choir.
