Choir starts again the week of January 15 2018

Dear choir 2.3 and 4.5 families, just a reminder that choir starts the week of January 15th. There is no choir until that time as mentioned at the concert and hopefully in an email that you received. Also, you do not need to sign up for choir for this round of enrichments if you have already been in the choir. I look forward to seeing you after the Martin Luther King holiday. Thank you!
