The 2017-2018 school year is now just a few weeks away. Maybe that thought brings fear and stress and animosity to your day like seeing school supply displays at your local Walmart alongside July 4th decorations. Maybe you’re excited. Maybe this is going to be your first year teaching and you’re trying to plan your year but keep being interrupted by waves of nausea. Maybe this is your last year before retirement.
Probably you’re feeling a lot of emotions right now. I hope you’re enjoying your summer to its fullest. But soon enough, we’ll be back in the classroom planning rehearsals and sight-singing strategies and wondering when the Assistant Principal will be by for a “visit.” By providing all of the details for a year full of Choral Division events now, we hope you’ll be able to start the year a little more smoothly. You have all the dates, all the deadlines, all the procedures, and all the names of all the contact people you could possibly need for the year. But if there’s something you’re not sure about, please feel free to ask! If you ask an officer or a chairperson a question and they can’t answer it, they’ll certainly know where to point you to find it.
Ok. That’s all the official talk for a few more weeks. Enjoy the rest of your summer. Speaking of which, I need to go check on a couple of racks of ribs.
