7th & 8th Grade Choir

Canby Jr. High Choir 2015

Welcome Back To School!

Here are a few guidelines for you to follow:

Rehearsal Etiquette

Be on Time:  When you come to choir, you are expected to get to your seat with your folder and ready to sing. If have started the rehearsal and you are not in your assigned seat, you will be counted tardy.  If you receive a tardy, your daily grade will be docked by five points.  

8th Grade choir will be held on M &W and every other Friday.

7th Grade choir will be held on T&Th and every other Friday.

Entering and Leaving the Room: Please enter the room quietly and get your folder and get to your seat.  At the end of class, I will dismiss by rows, Please put your folder in the assigned slot.  If you folder is out at the end of class, you will lose 5 daily points.  

Gum: No gum in the music room.  Also, no pop or any other food.  Water bottles are fine, but please have a secure lid on them.  
Respect: Respect the music room, the musicians and the music.

Vocal Technique-Be sure to sit/stand in correct singing position and sing with an open mouth and a lot or air.

Cell Phone Policy-Cell phones are not to be used during class time.  Keep them in your pockets and TURNED OFF! If you choose not to follow this policy, I will take your cell phone and give it to Dr. Slaba.  

Most Importantly-Always do your very best!


You will receive a daily grade of 10 points for participation/attitude and following directions.   You will also receive a daily grade of 5 points for punctuality.  If you are tardy, you will lose those 5 points unless you have a pass from a teacher.
