Due West Elementary Chorus Page
General Chorus Information:
The chorus is a vocal performance ensemble for 4th and 5th grade students. That's a fancy way to say that it is a singing group that puts on concerts. The chorus performs in our community and in our school. We rehearse weekly on Wednesdays from 2:30 - 3:15.
Chorus Performance Dress Code: Clean Shoes, Black Slacks (or Black skirts) and the Chorus Shirt.
A $50 donation is requested from each chorus member. These donations cover the following costs:

Students will need to be picked up via carline at the front of the school at 3:15. Parents can also park off site and walk up to get their children at 3:15. That is probably the fastest option, as the car line for Wednesday clubs can get long. Students who have not been picked up by 3:30 will go to ASP. Parents will be responsible for paying ASP anytime their child uses this service.
