Hello HMS Chorus families! It’s been a great week so far and students are already working hard! We’ve been singing in all of our classes and I’m hearing great things! I am excited about all the opportunities for our Chorus students this year! Thanks for being a part of our wonderful tradition of excellence!
We will have a Performing Arts Parent Meeting on Thursday, August 13 at 6:00 pm. Chorus parents will meet in the Media Center. (Band will be in the gym and Orchestra will be in the Cafeteria.) The meeting should last approximately one hour and I will have a brief time for questions after the meeting. I hope you will come out to hear about the year and all of the important information relating to Chorus. If you are not able to attend, information will be given out in class as a follow-up to the meeting. I look forward to seeing you Thursday evening!
So proud of the 7th & 8th Grade Girls Chorus for their SUPERIOR rating on performance AND sight-reading at this year’s LGPE! Way to go, girls!
7th & 8th Grade Girls Choruses will perform at the Pre-LGPE Concert tomorrow evening at 6:45 pm at Cambridge High School. Students should report at 6:15 pm and the concert will be over at approximately 7:15 pm. Parents should plan to pick up their student in the band room after the concert.

What a great week! Students have returned ready to learn and we are already working on our first songs! Our 7th and 8th graders are singing well, remembering a lot from last year, so we have hit the ground running! Our new 6th graders are an eager group and are making great progress as well! We welcome the new students and families who have moved into the area and hope this year with the Hopewell Chorus will be an outstanding one!
We had our annual Performing Arts Parents Night meeting last night and had a good crowd of parents in attendance. Look for an email this weekend with a summary of the items we discussed. Also parents, make sure you are receiving emails from me through Home Access Center. I got quite a few that bounced back with my first email. Check your spam filters and make sure your email is correct so you can receive timely information. If you need a copy of information sent home with your student I can do that as well – just let me know.
Thanks for sending your students back to school ready to learn! I am looking forward to a fantastic year!
