FUTURE Mill Creek Chorus Singing Hawks

Welcome to Chorus 2018-2019 Singing Hawks! 

I am so happy you have chosen to be a part of our wonderful program!   If you are new to chorus, your singer was presented with a letter from me week of 4/16,.  If you did not receive this letter for whatever reason, it is attached below at the bottom of this webpage as "Welcome to Chorus Singing Hawks".  In the letter are two important pieces of information:   How to log into our communication and financial accouting system (CHARMSOFFICE) so you can add your email and all contact information to receive important information from me.  It also mentions our upcoming trip to NEW YORK CITY April 11-14, 2019!   Students may sign up for the trip (see link below) and once signed up, your CHARMS account will be designated with the New York trip fee ($1550) so that families may begin to make payments for this trip.   Students who sign up and make a deposit by 4/25, AND who have updated their personal contact information on CHARMSOFFICE, will receive an email from me with a link to vote for their TWO musicals we will be seeing in New York--there are 20 to choose from for voting, so this is a cool opportunity for students to have input.  :-)  We will also be singing at SunTrust Stadium for the Atlanta Braves on August 18, 2018.   This will be a great opportunity for singers to bond right away and feel immediately like a part of the Singing Hawk family.  More info about that coming soon....

To sign up for our New York trip, please click on this link and add your information:   Click here to sign up for New York Trip 

No matter how involved your singer wishes to be in our program,  your singer will be given the opportunity to choose to learn, be happy and  to enjoy singing!!!  

Musically Yours, Mrs. Archer

All information  (handouts, applications, Handbook, Calendar, Uniform Info, etc) is posted on your student's EClass page. All new and returning students are asked to visit our Chorus Information and Financial Hub, CHARMS (www.charmsoffice.com) and update all of your personal information.  This website will be used for ALL CHORUS COMMUNICATION and is VITAL that student and parent email information is kept up to date for you to stay informed of chorus activities, deadlines, and general information.    For your convenience, I am posting some general information, but please know this website will not be regularly maintained.
