Homecoming Dance this Saturday!

Hello Parents,

Our Homecoming Dance is this Saturday, October 5th, from 8 – 11 pm in the THS Cafeteria. This is our main fundraiser. We need all hands helping out!

Concert Choir members are expected to support in the execution of the event by participating in several of the following activities:

  1. Painting and creation of cafeteria signage and decorations during the week.
  2. Decorating and setting up the cafeteria on Saturday morning from 8:00 AM – 1:00 PM.
  3. Helping with Coat Check shifts from 7:30 PM until 11:30 PM.
  4. Tearing down, 11:00 PM – until it is done (hopefully no later than 12:30 AM) of decorations and resetting the cafeteria to be operational on Monday Morning.

PARENT CHAPERONES

For those parents who have volunteered, THANK YOU!

Parents show up at 7 PM (updated) and will be assigned locations to work.

Bring Ear Plugs!

  1. 2 parents will be collecting AT THE DOOR payment for tickets ($15), checking school ID and writing down names of each student that arrives to purchase a ticket. NO AT THE DOOR tickets are sold to non-THS Students.
  2. Parents will be in pairs at the bathrooms, at the exit doors to make sure students do not let other students in, at the snack and water tables.
  3. All parents will assist in tear down in order to facilitate getting kids home as soon as possible.

Thank you,

Mr. Hawthorne

Concert Choir 2020 Announced

Thank you to all who auditioned for Concert Choir! There was a great talent pool from which to choose.

Congratulations to those selected for membership in Concert Choir 2020!

There will be 7 S1, 11 S2, 15 A, 10 T, 9 B1, 9 B2 for a total of 61 members. 33 SA, 28 TB. You should movement between sections to accommodate the music we perform. I am pleased with the blend and balance that these selected voices will achieve. You will received the Fall Concert Repertoire before you leave for the Summer. You will be expected to learn the Repertoire in advance of the first rehearsal in the Fall.

Your membership is conditional. You must end the year in good standing in the choir program, maintaining excellent attendance in all classes and maintaining passing grades in all classes.

Under no circumstances are you to engage in speculation about who or why anyone was selected, engage in negative social media activity, get involved in gossip or show an attitude that would reflect poorly on you, your peers, the choir program or Tigard High School. Failure to uphold your end of the contract that you and your parents signed will cause you to forfeit your membership in the choir.

Be proud of your selection on the inside. Be humble on the outside, demonstrate maturity and integrity as you interact with your peers. That is how we roll in the choir program at Tigard High School. Live it well!

Congratulations!

Mr. H
