Essence,Jazz Transit & Musical cancelled for Today; Schedule adjustments-PLEASE NOTE!

Good morning MCHS Choir families,

Due to the weather and the cancellation of school, all after-school activities, meetings, practices, and athletic contests are cancelled for today, Wed. 1/24. 

Parents and students, due to school cancellation today and my being gone at the ILMEA conference starting Thursday morning and being off school today, I was supposed to share curricular choir results with the B-DAY choir members today.  I still had one small section of Mixed Choir girls to audition at the start of 3B today (due to some absences) and then in the middle of 3B during our lunch hour, would be able to finalize roster placements for the 2018-19 school year.   I was to share those results one-on-one with students today but unfortunately, I will have to share those on Monday once I have listened to those girls sing.  
Students would be able to schedule for which choir for 2018-19 on Monday 1/29.  If you really need to know what I have decided so far, feel free to e-mail me and I can give you a pretty good idea of which choir you would be selected for.  If you can wait until Monday, I can share with your students then. Thank you for your flexibility!  A-DAY W. Chorale students were already told on Tuesday in class.
