    Our 5th and 6th Grade Winter Choir concert is Wednesday, Feb. 24th at 7:00 PM in the Ford Auditorium!! Parents who are not able to attend the evening performance are welcome to come to the daytime dress rehearsals.   Please be reminded: the evening concert is a large part of the 3rd quarter gradeI would be happy to write a note to any coaches, PSR teachers, scout leaders, etc. explaining your child’s mandatory attendance at our concert.  Students are expected to stay and listen to the other choir as part of their concert experience and concert evaluation portion of our curriculum.  Please contact me if you have any questions about this PRIOR to the concert.  The concert will about 45 minutes.  Please let me know if you cannot get your child to Ford on 2/24 and I can suggest some possible carpools.  There are over 300 kids in choir- let’s work together to make sure no student misses out on the concert!


    • 6th grade choir students report to the auditorium, highlight name IN THE LOBBY for attendance, and sit in assigned seats in the auditorium by 6:55 p.m. 
    • 5th grade choir students meet Mrs. Gabrielsen in the CAFETERIA at 6:40 to line up on the steps
