Choir

We currently have two choirs at Foothill. Both meet on Mondays after school (2:35 pm) and end at 3:30 pm. 

Children in grades 1-3 can participate in the Junior Choir.

Children in grades 4-6 can participate in the Senior Choir.

Participation in choir is free unless you would like your child to own a t-shirt. Your director will provide information about purchasing choir shirts.

Because we are a volunteer organization, parent participation is encouraged. We can use musical and non-musical help (directors, accompaniment, wardrobe coordinator, "Music Mom"--the group's parent coordinator, printed program designer and preparer, poster designer, concert set-up and clean-up, newsletter reporter, photographer, etc.) Please tell your director how you would like to help.

Children who sign up for choir should plan on attending EVERY WEEK. If you have your child enrolled in multiple activities, please remember that this is an activity that requires commitment and practice. A child who doesn't practice or come to rehearsal affects the whole group. If your child will miss more than 3 times for reasons other than illness, you should not sign up your child for choir. Thank you. 

Choir is NOT a babysitting service. Please only sign up your child for choir if they WANT to be there. Parent volunteers have a big job teaching music to many children without the challenge of uninterested children on hand. Thank you for your cooperation. We can, of course, accommodate a child with special needs as long as the parent communicates effectively with the directors to provide a situation with sufficient support for the child. We love all children but are limited in our ability to meet needs without additional parental support. (We are not superhuman.) PLEASE tell your director about any FOOD ALLERGIES or other special needs your child has.

There are times when children do not behave appropriately over a period of time and whose disruptive behavior adds too much of a burden to the group and director(s). If this happens, we will contact you and see what solutions can be worked out. If the circumstances are such that the behavior doesn't change, we will kindly ask you to wait another year to participate. Thank you for your understanding. 

If for any reason you choose to withdraw your child from choir, please have the courtesy to CONTACT your director personally so they know. We are never offended when a child or parent chooses not to continue participation, but it does make it difficult if a child simply stops coming and we don't know if they have quit or are sick, on vacation, etc.

To register your child for choir, please go to the registration page on this website.

Thank you! :)
