Hello WMS Choir Parents!
I'm very excited along with the WMS Choir students about this Saturday! The 2nd Annual CCC is shaping up to be an amazing day of team building, singing, eating, and more! Please make sure that you read the details below to answer lots of questions that students have been asking in class.
Q. What time is the CCC?
A. 9 AM to 9 PM
Q. Where is the CCC?
West Middle School (enter through the doors by the big gym).
Q. Are students supposed to stay ALL day?
A. Yes! :-)
Q. What if my student can attend for part of the day, but not the whole day?
A. Students should attend as much of the day as possible. Activities will not be the same all day long. The day is designed to begin with activities that build on each other. If students arrive late or leave early they will not receive the full benefit of the day. However, some time at the CCC is better than nothing.
Q. May I just drop my student off outside or do I need to come in to drop them off?
A. You may just drop them off. You are also more than welcome to come in and stay for a while.
Q. What should students wear?
A. All students will be receiving new choir t-shirts tomorrow or Friday. All students & volunteers MUST be wearing this choir t-shirt. If additional shirts are being worn, the choir t-shirt must be on top of those. Athletic shoes and shorts or pants that allow for physical activities in the gym should be worn.
Q. What & When is lunch?
A. Pizza (Pepperoni and some just Chese...two pieces per person), salad bar, chips, fruit, pop, and water will be served for lunch from 12:00-1:00
Q. What & When is dinner & dessert?
A. Pulled Pork w/ BBQ sauce (on the side), pasta salad, macaroni salad, and cole slaw will be served for dinner from 5:00-6:00. We will have a Moomer's Ice Cream Sundae Bar for dessert with all the toppings you could imagine! :-)
Q. When should I pick up my student?
A. Parents are strongly encouraged to arrive in the Big Gym at 8:30 to hear a mini-concert and student presentations from the days activities.
Q. How many students will be participating?
A. Over 300!
Q. Who will be managing all of these students & how can I help?
A. I will :-)...but not by myself. ;-) I currently have over 50 parent volunteers scheduled to chaperone throughout the day (some ALL day, some just morning / afternoon / evening). There will also be 5-10 TCAPS staff on site throughout the day.
Q. What are the morning activities?
A. The morning will be spent doing team-building activities focusing on physical, mental, and emotional challenges involving teams of about 10-12 students representing a variety of grades. These challenges will be based on the Choir Code, A Path of a Titan, and John Wooden's Pyramid of Success. Most activities will be in the Big Gym or Small Gym and a few may be in the Little Theater, Cafeteria or Choir Room.
Q. What are the afternoon activities?
A. We're gonna SING! :-) Two Professional A Cappella groups will be performing (TBD A Cappella & The Overtones) from 1-1:30 & 2-2:30. We will have a workshop in between performances. After these performances students will break up by grade level / choir with guest directors (Mrs. Wolf-Schlarf with the 8th grade Treble choir, Mrs. Brazee with the 7th Grade Treble Choir, Mr. Hoxsie with the 7th & 8th Grade Tenor / Bass Choir, Mr. Dee with the combined 6th Grade Choir).
Q. What are the evening activities?
A. TC Bubble Soccer & Battle Bows in the gyms from 4 p.m. - 8 p.m., Open Mic / Karaoke in the little theater from 4:15 - 6:00, Movie (When the Game Stands Tall) from 6:00 - 8:00, Wrap up activities from 8:00-8:30 and mini-performance / parent presentation from 8:30 - 9:00.
Q. May students have cell phones?
A. Students may only have cell phones for emergency use or for texting a parent. The only exception would be the possibility of them being used to access the choir website or take photos as part of the activities.
Announcing...Special Guests for the 2nd Annual CCC will be two amazing a cappella groups!
