Honor Choir (for those who auditioned and were selected) - January 22 all day

Spring Choral Concerts (it will be the same concert twice) 

Tuesday, April 16 @ 7 pm




Girls in 7th and 8th grade will continue wearing the same red dress from last year. (‘Ashton’ in ‘Claret’ from Southern Performance Apparel). Girls in 6th grade will wear the same ‘Ashton’ dress but in black.  

Boys will wear black dress pants, black dress shoes (NOT tennis shoes), and a button-down black shirt. 

Fitting for dresses will happen in the next couple of weeks. If your child already has a dress that fits from last year, there is no need to buy a new one. 

The dress cost (including shipping) will be $75. This can be paid in full at one time or over 3 installments.
