Info for Holiday Nights Sunday, December 11!

Dear Parents of Honors Choir singers,

This letter is to inform you about our upcoming performance at the 2016 Holiday Nights in Greenfield Village. We have been scheduled to perform on Sunday, December 11, 2016 from 6:30pm – 9:30pm.

All singers are expected to be at this event.

The entire group will meet in the Josephine Ford Plaza by the fountain promptly at 5:45pm. Please make arrangements to be on time. Guests will not be able to enter the Village until 6:30.

Participant Waiver Form (will be handing out at rehearsal) – Parents must fill this form out and return Ms. Pegouske no later than Dec. 8th. Students will not be able to perform if this waiver is not turned in.

Each singer will receive one complimentary ticket to use for a guest(parent/chaperone). Singers do not need a ticket to enter the event.

If you wish to attend the event, you can use your singer’s complementary ticket, but you must purchase additional tickets if more want to come see the group perform and attend Holiday Nights. These tickets must be purchased ahead of time, either on the website www.thehenryford.org or by calling 800-835-5237. They will be unable to make arrangements for additional tickets if and when the evening is sold out. This event does sell out fast, so please be aware of this.

This is such a fun and great performance opportunity for our singers! Because most parents attend this event, singers will be with parents during all breaks.  This is a great chance to get to know other singers and families!

Thank you for all of your support!

Ms. Pegouske

If approved by the entire county, the 2 mil proposal will generate approximately $6.2 million from Dearborn but the District will receive $7.8 million in additional funding for our schools.  Money would go to local schools starting this year and the millage expires after six years.  Continue reading
