Butter Braids On Sale Labor Day Weekend

Salem Choir and Musical Theatre students will be taking orders for delicious Butter Braid frozen pastries through September 12. The orders come in the first week of October, making these a great choice for Thanksgiving, Christmas, or any family get-together. These are great products, and available only through Salem students. Help support the Choir and Musical Theatre programs. Selected Art Department students at SHS will also be raising funds to help support their activities as well.

Online Music Lessons & Exercises

The addition of Chromebooks grades 6-8, and the addition of these devices to the high school in 2018 give us an opportunity to practice some skills online.

All Choir students grades 6-12 will be going through portions of the MusicTheory.net program this year. These lessons and exercises reinforce what is demonstrated in class, and skills will be tested from time to time.

All lessons and exercises are free, and can be done on any platform, including Android and iPhone. LINKS to the “GETTING STARTED” Info sheet here…

SMS Concert Cancelled

The Pops Concert originally scheduled for Monday, May 22 has been cancelled. School will not be in session and chances of getting all the students ready and present for the event are not good under the circumstances.

Chances of re-scheduling are uncertain, as the facility is in use for the 8th grade Honor Program later in the week.

Any updates will be posted here and on Twitter @SalemChoirs once more information is available.
