Enroll your child in Chorus for grades 4-8 this year!

Posted on September 9th, 2017

Parents and guardians of students in grades 4-8 are encouraged to sign up their children for Chorus.

The Chorus program, directed by music teacher Michal Buchanan, is offered at each of the district’s K-8 schools and the Edgar Fahs Smith STEAM Academy. Each school has an assigned day and time to rehearse.

Students rehearse for 40 minutes in the afternoon. Parents must give permission for students to participate because it is a “pullout program.” Students must make up any missed class work.

After-school rehearsals will be held in October through December, and then again at the end of March through May.  The Chorus program presents two concerts each year at William Penn Senior High School.

Students have been sent home with permission slips, which are due the day Chorus starts at your child’s school. Those deadlines are:

McKinley – Monday, Sept. 18

Ferguson – Tuesday, Sept. 19

Davis – Wednesday, Sept. 20

STEAM – Thursday, Sept. 21

Jackson – Monday, Sept. 25

Goode – Tuesday, Sept. 26

Devers – Wednesday, Sept. 27

Hannah Penn – Thursday, Sept. 28
