6th Grade Choir - Margaret Shutes, Director

Sixth grade students have the opportunity to sign up for choir as an exploratory activity. Many sixth graders have never been in a large performance group. Choir gives them the chance to experience a large group ensemble for the first time.  Sixth Grade Choir meets one day per cycle during AREA and is not a graded activity. The choir performs twice during the school year.
