Good morning,

I cannot believe tomorrow is the last full day! This year has really flown by.

From now on I’m going to add a calendar such as the one above that condenses all important dates from this email into a single chart. I hope this is helpful.

CELEBRATIONS AND MILESTONES

Congratulations to everyone on completing a fantastic year!

*I’d also like to add a “CELEBRATIONS AND MILESTONES” as a permanent section. If you’d like something on there such as a birthday, achievement, celebration, etc., you can send me an email the week before you’d like it to be there.

LOOKING AHEAD: For those of you who have students registered in chorus, Chorale, or are planning on doing Spotlight, next year, you will need to re-sign up for these Weekly Updates. You can do so by sending me an email with which email list(s) you’re interested in, or you can go to my website and send me an email from there:www.roslynmschorus.org/contact.

**You can also sign-up for new REMIND text reminders on the website homepage, www.roslynmschorus.org, or on the contact page, www.roslynmschorus.org/contact.

**I recommend signing up for emails and texts BEFORE the school year ends so when we get closer to the beginning of the new school year, you will be in contact with me. I plan on sending my first emails at the end of August.

**For eighth grade parents, don’t worry about unsubscribing since I’m starting a new email group for next year. This group will just dissolve.

IMPORTANT SPOTLIGHT CHANGE: Instead of “Javert’s Suicide” for auditions, I am going to swap it out for “Stars” and instead of “Do You Hear the People Sing” I’m swapping it for “Red an Black”. EVERYONE auditioning will also sing “Do You Hear the People Sing.” See below in the “Spotlight” section for other important and exciting updates. Additional info can be found on my website under the “Spotlight” section.

The following are updates for Chorus, Chorale, and Spotlight. For those of you new to Weekly Updates, you can find previous newsletters on my website: www.roslynmschorus.org. If you would like to unsubscribe to these emails, please respond to this email with: “UNSUBSCRIBE”. You are automatically subscribed if you sent an email regarding Chorus, Chorale, or Spotlight.

Have a terrific week!

All my best,

Cyndi Feinman

CHORALE

  1. This week we will be meeting on MONDAY, WEDNESDAY. We may not need to meet on Wednesday depending on how well we rehearse on Monday. Our graduation song still needs a lot of work, so please make sure everyone is at Chorale ON TIME!
  1. Please make a note that ALL students, 7th AND 8th grade, are required to sing at the 8th grade graduation on June 22nd at 11am at Hofstra. There will a bus that leaves from school.
  1. As the school year is ending, attendance is very important!!! Please make sure you are coming to rehearsals on time and regularly so we sound terrific at graduation.
  1. I was able to separate our concert audio from the video, so I will be making an album of these tracks for your enjoyment, rather than recording them live.

CHORUS

  1. All projects were due on Friday. If your child still needs to send me their project, please email me.
  1. If you would like a copy of the concert, please send in a flash drive and I will put the recordings onto it. I can’t send the files because they are too big.
  1. I will be sending chorus folders home again this week, but if your child is registered for chorus next year, please save the folder since personal folders will be mandatory next year.
