Hello Families,
 
We had another very good rehearsal this week!  I handed out practice sheets last week for each singer to keep track of their practicing.  Please encourage them to practice with the tracks on the right hand of this screen and to write down their time on their sheets.  THANK YOU!  Their homework is also listed below.
 
Also remind them for every rehearsal to bring their folder with music and a water bottle.
 
We have many things scheduled so please make sure you add the google calendar to your personal phone or computer by adding the plus sign on the bottom right corner. This calendar is the best way to be kept up to date with events for RC and look ahead to what is coming in the future.
 
Also don't forget to purchase your uniforms! Click on the uniform information tab for RC uniform has slightly changed!
 
Lastly, please check this webpage every week for updates and information! Below is an outline of what is coming for the rest of this month and next!
 
Thanks again and looking forward to another great rehearsal!
