We are kicking off our Fall Fundraiser, BoosterShot Gift-Checkbooks! These checkbooks offer hundreds of dollars in savings to local Northbrook area businesses. Unlike coupons, these gift-checks are good towards any purchase and are used like cash. They’re an amazing value at only $30, and $15.00 of each purchase goes directly into the fundraising account of the student seller.
As always, fundraising is an optional part of the choral program. However, this would be a great way to raise some funds towards the upcoming LA tour, the choir banquet, and other choir-related expenses. These books are recognized in the community and are easy to sell, so we encourage students to participate.
Please click the link below for more information and for extra copies of the sales sheet. Please email Mrs. Nichols or Mr. Davidson with any questions. Happy selling!
Here is an instructional video as well as one with the music. This will be reviewed on Thursday, but it is in your best interest to learn it over the next couple of days. A few reminders:
- There is an optional clinic tomorrow after school in the Choir Room from 3-3:45PM. This will be for learning the vocal selection.
- Auditions are on Thursday from 3-5:00PM in the Orchestra Room.
- Please bring your signed permission slip/conflict form to your audition. Otherwise, you will be ineligible to be placed on the roster.
Let Mrs. Nichols know if you have any questions (firstname.lastname@example.org). Happy practicing!
The GBN Choir and Theater programs are excited to announce that we are taking a tour to LA this January. We will be leaving on Thursday, January 17th and returning on Monday, January 21st. All students currently enrolled in a curricular choir are invited to attend, though participation is not mandatory.
We will have a parent meeting on Thursday, September 13th at 7:00PM in the Choir Room (E104). Topics will include the trip itinerary, cost, fundraising options, flight details, chaperone needs, performance opportunities, and other tour details, as well as offer parents the opportunity to ask questions to a representative of the tour company.
The session will be geared toward parents/guardians, but students are welcome to attend.
We are thrilled for this opportunity. Hope to see you at the meeting!
Welcome back to school!
