    Dear Parents/Guardians,                                                                                              September ­20th, 2017

    1. Chorus Invitation:

    It is my pleasure to invite your child to join Central Elementary Chorus.  This 4th and 5th grade group will sing, play percussive instruments for accompaniment, work hard, and have fun!  This group of dedicated, non-auditioned students will perform a Winter Program (01/23/18 @ EBHS), be given the opportunity to participate in All-District Chorus (02/06/18 @ JMPAC), and will perform a Spring Program (05/07/18 @ EBHS).

    2. Rehearsals (Schedule on page 2):

    Chorus rehearsals will take place in the Cafetorium every Tuesday from 8:00 to 8:50 a.m., starting October 3rd, 2017.  Rehearsals are very IMPORTANT! Choir members are to be dropped off at the front of the school no earlier than 7:45 a.m., as the security desk will not grant access to school until that time.  Parents, it is your responsibility to ensure that your choir member participates in every choir rehearsal.  Please enlist a relative, friend, or neighbor to provide transportation for your child to participate in rehearsals if you are unable to do so.

     3. Attendance:

    Each student is allowed TWO unexcused absences from rehearsal for each concert: Winter and Spring. Two tardies equal one unexcused absence; each student who signs in after 8:00 a.m. will be marked as tardy.  Unfortunately, more than two unexcused absences will result in your child no longer being able to participate in the concert.  Students who participate in Chorus are expected to perform in the concert.  If your child is ill and will be absent from school and rehearsal, notify me about your child’s absence from Chorus by emailing me at emmann@ebnet.org and they will be excused.  Thank you.

     4. Registration: Opens today, September 20th

    Students who wish to join Chorus must complete registration online before participating in the club.  To enroll your child, please visit www.ebnet.org, click the “Parents,” tab on the upper right, and click on “Community Pass/Registration & Pay”. If you have not already established a CommunityPass account, please create a temporary username/password to log on.  If you have misplaced this information, please contact Financial Services for help at (732) 613-6674.  Year-long membership costs $15. If your child receives free lunch, they may join for free, but online registration must still be completed to participate.  There is a $5 late fee for registration after October 31st, 2017. 

     5. Chorus Communication and Contracts:

    a.  Communication and updates will take place virtually on our “Remind,” app.  Please register for updates on rehearsals, cancellations, and more at: https://www.remind.com/join/7aaak9

    b.  Lastly, contracts must be completed electronically at: https://goo.gl/forms/avCGSz4nTfc3gFW22

     

    Please know, Chorus is absolutely optional and will DEFINITELY be a blast!  Thank you for all your support.

     

    Sincerely,
