“My best skill was that I was coachable. I was a sponge and aggressive to learn.” – MICHAEL JORDAN

Be friendly and be a friend!

In seat at bell, with music, pencil!
Check markerboard/screen for plan
Check in with section leader


Be fully present, listening to self and others!
Be kind, positive and encouraging of others!
Be relentless in your learning!

Music Folder, Pencil and H2O only on risers!
Electronics in depot!
Stay! breaks are rare and without electronics!
Clean up do your part to care for your space!

Chromebook : for journalling and accessing Canvas.
Assigned music: Take good care of the music. It needs to last for years!
Pencils: Two pencils in your choir folder for marking your music. (NO PEN on music)
Deodorant! Personal Hygiene MATTERS! ALWAYS! (seriously, no joke!)


All music belongs to Tigard. Damaged or lost music will be replaced at your expense. Only mark in pencil. No pen!

If you have a fever, vomiting or diarrhea in the last 24 hours, or suspect you have COVID, DO NOT COME TO SCHOOL! If you are at school, you are expected to fully participate!

Gum, etc in mouth during rehearsal:
No.  Water bottles only.

Hall Passes: 
Use the passing periods for restroom needs, not social or administrative/counseling needs. Parents can reach you through Student Services. Hall passes are used sparingly, one at a time and without your phone. There is no leaving the classroom in the first or last 10 minutes, per THS school policy.

Listen to your peers and the director with an open and kind spirit.  

Show Pride!
Remember that your concert behavior and appearance (both on stage and in the audience) reflect an image of the school and community as well as the choir itself.  Choir students are always required to stay for a complete concert to get full credit for a performance.  Students are never permitted to leave their seats during a performance except if there is an intermission. 

Individual Practice:
You are expected to practice on your own for 15 minutes each day I am available during both lunches and after school (by advance appointment please) to help you in any way that I can.

When Words Fail, Music Speaks
