With a cast and crew of over 65 students, the annual “Bohemian Supper Club” springs into action November 8-11 at SHS. “Cover” songs are the theme this year, with talented student performers bringing new and different takes on old favorites. Tickets go on sale Monday, October 22 at the Salem High School Bookstore (school hours only, no phone calls, please), or right here at SalemChoirs.org.

Choir Parents Meeting Tues 7 PM at SHS

The Salem Choir Parent Organization will be holding a meeting on Tuesday, October 16 at 7 pm in the High School Presentation Room.   We will be planning for the upcoming Bohemian Supper Club and will be asking for volunteers to help in a variety of roles.  If your child is involved in the Supper Club, you will especially want to come to this meeting.  (You can help in the kitchen or as an event manager, and still go watch your child while they are performing-a great opportunity for the nights you don’t have a ticket for.)

We also need volunteers to send food for the students on the nights they practice for the Supper Club.  Please come to the meeting to support your student and the Choir program. If you cannot attend the meeting, but would still like to help, call or text me at 812-216-4012.

Sincerely,

LeAnn Hardin, President

 

Butter Braids On Sale Labor Day Weekend

Salem Choir students at SHS and SMS will be selling delicious “Butter Braid” frozen pastries starting Labor Day weekend through September 12. This is our only fund raising project, and these pastries have become a big hit with area families. Many people stock up for the holidays and break them out over Thanksgiving and Christmas get-togethers. Several flavors are available. This is the ONLY fund-raising product we’ve ever used that people ask US when they can be ordered, and now is the time. You can’t get them in any store, only through Salem Choir and Musical Theater students. Several Art Club and Art Department students will be selling right along with us to support their activities. Sale ends September 12, and products are delivered in early October. Support the Arts at SHS and SMS by ordering BUTTER BRAIDS.

Back-To-School Information For Parents

Welcome back to school, and to the new Online Choir Classroom that students will find on their Chromebooks. Choir Announcements appear here, and in the Classroom, with real-time updates on Twitter @SalemChoirs.

All students were given a Student Guide on the first day of school, along with a Parent Letter with a signature section that students return to the Choir Office.

The Student Guide includes all the details students and parents need for a successful year, including required performance dates & times. There are typically two (2) required performances each semester.

By now, all students should have returned the bottom portion of the Opening Day Parent Letter. If you need another copy, students can print one in their Online Classroom, or get one at school. Parents with questions or concerns can reach the instructor at:
wspencer_pierce@salemschools.us.

First assignments can be found at the Online Classroom, and are due Friday, August 17.
Note: Classroom codes have been updated. New codes will be posted at school Monday, August 13.

Best wishes to all students for an exciting musical journey this school year!
