PTA Updates

Grady Chorus

September 4, 2017

Welcome back Grady Tiger Families!

We are trying a new routine with our Grady Chorus this year.

I will be having rehearsals for Intermediate (3rd, 4th, and 5th grade) Chorus every Monday after dismissal, from 1:15-2:00p.m., starting on September 11th.

At 2 o'clock, I will walk the entire group to the front of the school for their dismissal, any students that go to the YMCA on campus will be brought to the cafeteria.

I understand that this is a new procedure. I asked around to all of our neighboring schools, and each of the music teachers informed me that they hold after-school rehearsals. My move to this type of rehearsal is an effort to reach more children, and not impact the academic day negatively.  

Primary Chorus (1st and 2nd grade) will use songs that are within their music curriculum, and thus not have to have an after school rehearsal. If the after school rehearsal is successful for Intermediate Chorus, I will address adding Primary to an afternoon, for school year 2018-19.

Attached please find the permission form for the Grady Tiger Chorus for grades 3, 4, and 5. Please complete and return by September 11th.

If your child has a conflict between wanting to participate in Intermediate Chorus and Monday clubs, please contact Norma Maiz at [email protected]


Thank you for your time,
