Hello Everyone! Grades for the 1st quarter have posted and will be available in FOCUS next week. Here are some important things you need to know for the 2nd quarter:
1. If you have not filled out and returned your chorus contract, please do so immediately you can access this on the website under the "Handbook/Calendar" tab. Print the last page of the handbook. Those who do not turn one in will have uniform ordered for them and I cannot guarantee it will be the correct size!
2. Mark your calendars for the following important dates:
Oct. 11--All Fundraiser money and orders due
Nov. 2--5:00PM--All County Chorus Auditions. (Students will be selected for this event.)
Nov. 9--Fundraiser items arrive. (Please keep in mind there is no school the next day. It is imperative your items are picked up on time the day they arrive as the school has no place to hold them, especially over a long holiday weekend.)
Nov. 30--Money for Lion King Field Trip Due. (More information regarding this going home in a few weeks.)
Dec. 1--All Chorus fees Due
Dec. 4--Winter Concert at 6:30 PM
As always, if you have any questions, please email me.

Hello Yellow Jacket Chorus Family! I hope everyone has recovered from Hurricane Irma. If your family is in any type of need, please don't hesistate to let us know so that we may assist you in any way we can.
Due to the Hurricane taking away over a week of valuable rehearsal time, we have made the decision to cancel our Fall Concert scheduled for October 2. This will allow up ample time to prepare for our Holiday Concert on Dec. 4.
Please make plans to attend. Open House will be held on Monday, September 25 from 6:00-7:30 at the school. It is important that parents attend as we will be discussing very important "adult" things from the chorus handbook. If you cannot attend, please be sure to message me for the "cliff notes" version.

In an effort to be more eco-friendly, we will be eliminating a lot of take home papers and reminder slips and instead will be using the app Remind. This is a free app (however, standard texting rates do apply) for both Apple and Android phones. It's a great way for you to stay connected with quick reminders, events and we can even recruit volunteers! Please make sure that you download the app and use the correct codes to join.

Welcome Back Yellow Jackets!
We are very excited to kick off the 2017-2018 school year! Please look through the website to find valuable information to help you be successful on your first day of chorus. Whether you are new to OLJH Chorus or a returning singer, there is always something new to find on this website. We will be using "REMIND" ( a free texting service) in order to help facilitate communication. In an effort to be more "earth friendly" we are trying our best to eliminate excess use of paper, so be sure to check here often!
Our guidance department and administration are working hard to ensure that all students are placed in the correct classes before the first day of school. If for some reason, you signed up for chorus (especially those of you who should be in Advanced!), please be sure to let me know IMMEDIATELY so that we can have the correct schedule for you on the first day (or at least by the first week.) ***NOTE: Academic classes are always scheduled first so please know that there is always a possibility you might not be able to have chorus due to certain academic needs.***
As always, if there is anything I can do to help make your experience at Oakleaf a positive one, please feel free to contact me at anytime.
Comment below and let me know what you are most excited about for this school year
