Children’s Choir


Because choir is viewed as a commitment, we take very seriously the issue of regular attendance. Should an absence occur, a written excuse must be submitted from a parent as to the reason for the absence. Reasons for excused absence shall include any legitimate reason, which is sanctioned by parental discretion. No more than 2 unexcused absences will be permitted per semester (no written excuse given by parent for absence). If a student acquires this status, they will forfeit the privilege of choir attendance for the remainder of the semester, and honor the remaining tuition payments until semester’s end. Attendance will be taken weekly by virtue of the sticker (or marker) board by the classroom teacher or homeroom mom.

Discipline and Participation

Students are expected to follow the criteria for good participation and behavior:

  • Participation in all aspects of class
  • Completing any assigned tasks
  • Christ-like attitude in respecting self & others
  • Overall cooperative classroom behavior
  • Weekly homework listening

Students earn stars for completing their homework assignments and following the above criteria.

At the end of the semester, each student who collects the minimum requirement of stars will be awarded a medal.

Homeroom Mom

In Angel/Children’s choir, we need the volunteer services of a “Homeroom Mom” for each class. The “Homeroom Mom” (or grandparent!) will be responsible for:

  • Attendance/Collecting & Practice Cards & recording completed assignments
  • Help with general concert organization of choirs

See the teacher if you would like more involvement in your child’s musical education!

Practice Cards

Practice Cards help the teacher and student keep on target. Practice is required at home to learn the music, and the teacher will assign specific tasks to accomplish. Students are expected to practice an average of 4 days per week for a limited amount of time. Parents are to sign off weekly and cards are turned in to the homeroom mom/choir secretary. Listening assignments can be found on the “Homework” page of this website.


Uniforms will be required for all performances. In some cases, a more casual atmosphere will dictate T-shirts which is included with the cost of registration. For formal concerts, the following uniform will be provided by the students:

  • White, long-sleeved shirt with a button-down collar
  • CAPA will provide a bow tie & cummerbund
  • Black pants/skirt
  • Black dress shoes
