Bryant Middle School Choir

This page will give updates and information regarding the Bryant Middle School Choir.

[11/12/19]   After receiving a call from the fundraiser company yesterday afternoon, the fundraiser items are supposed to arrive tomorrow, Wednesday, November 13th.

[11/11/19]   I have been working diligently for the past several days to get an update on why our choir fundraiser items have not arrived. From what I have been informed, there was a miscommunication between the company and the supplier. I was told that the company will contact me with a date of when the items will be delivered. I will let you know immediately when I receive this information.

[11/06/19]   Unfortunately, the choir fundraiser items did not come in today as planned. I just called the company to try to find out what is going on. As soon as they call me back, I will be able to give you an update. I apologize for this inconvenience.
Thank you for understanding.

[10/30/19]   The choir fundraiser items are expected to be delivered on Wednesday, November 6th. Students should be receiving their bags/boxes of items by the end of that school day.

[10/15/19]   Dear Choir Parent/Guardian,

Bryant Middle School will be hosting a night of holiday music on Thursday, December 12. This will feature both our Bryant Middle School bands and choirs in two separate concerts back to back. Therefore, we have been asked by our administration to change the date and location of the choir’s Christmas concert originally scheduled for December 16 in the Bryant Middle School main gym. The concert will now be on Thursday, December 12 in Bryant Middle School’s Blue Gym, which is the gym in the blue building behind the main building. 6th grade concert will begin at 6:00 p.m. and 7th grade concert will begin at 6:30 p.m. Each concert will last approximately 15 minutes. If a choir student is also a band student, they will make it on time to the band concert after they have participated in the choir concert. Please let me know if you have any questions.

[10/10/19]   The choir shirts we will wear for performances and events have arrived. They will be issued to the students tomorrow. The students will receive their shirt and original order form. Also, the students will sign a form stating they received their shirt.
If your child has not yet purchased their choir shirt yet, please do this as soon as possible. There were only a limited number of extra shirts ordered.

[09/19/19]   The fundraiser orders forms and money for items are due tomorrow, Friday, September 20th. Here is a checklist to make sure the order forms can be processed properly.

1. The order form should be written in pen not pencil

2. Make sure student’s name is written at the top of the order form (Last Name, First Name)

3. In the Teacher’s Name boxes put “Chism”

4. In the School/Organization boxes put Bryant Middle or BMS

5. Under the boxes labeled School/Organization put “Choir” in the box.

6. For Classroom put the class period number your student has choir.

7. Leave the prize box blank as I will take care of the student prize list.

8. Verify the item number matches the item the customer is purchasing.

9. Verify the price of the item matches the price of the item the customer is purchasing.

10. Verify the quantity of the items the customer is purchasing is correct.

11. Write the total number of items at the bottom of the order form.

12. Write the total amount of money at the bottom of the order form.

13. Make sure the total money collected is correct and matches the total on the order form.

14. Put money is an envelope or bag with the student’s name.

Thank you for helping with this. This will help me out as the sooner the company can receive the order forms the sooner the items will be delivered. Once I find out a delivery date to the school, I will inform you.

Students will turn in the order forms and money during their class. However, if parents would prefer to drop the money off at school instead of having the student do this, let me know, so I can expect this.

Again, thank you so much for helping with this. This helps our choir program tremendously so every choir student can receive the most valuable music education possible.

Please follow the instructions on the order form and make sure the information is written correctly and in pen.5. The money and order form(s) will be due on Friday, September 20th. Your child will turn these in to me on that day. If you prefer to drop this off yourself to the school, please give the money and order form(s) to the ladies in the front office, and they will get it to me.
If the students sell a certain amount of items, they can get specific prizes. The prize program is as follows:1. Sell 5 items: The students can participate in the Sticky Hand Game during class.2.

Message from Remind:

We’re thrilled to share the news: Thanks to you, Verizon has informed us that they will #ReverseTheFee. As a result, we can continue to offer text notifications as part of the Remind service. There will be no service disruption for Verizon Wireless customers.

We’re grateful to Verizon for making a commitment to support accessible communication for all Remind users. You can read more here:

Thank you so much for your patience and support—this wouldn’t be possible without you.

Message from Remind.

We’re sorry to write with disappointing news. Recently, we learned that Verizon will be charging Remind a new fee that makes it impossible for us to continue supporting free text messaging for anyone who has Verizon Wireless as their phone carrier. Please read on for all the important details—we promise to keep this as short as we can.

What’s happening?
To offer our text messaging service free of charge, Remind has always paid for each text that our users receive or send. Now, Verizon is charging Remind an additional fee intended for companies that send spam over its network. Your Remind messages aren’t spam, but our efforts to resolve the issue with Verizon haven’t been successful.

As a result, the Verizon fee will increase our costs of providing text messaging by 11X—pushing our annual costs into the millions of dollars. This isn’t financially feasible for us to support, and it’s forcing us to end Remind text messaging for everyone who has a wireless plan with Verizon.

How will this affect you?
Beginning January 28, 2019, the people in your classes who normally get your Remind messages as texts will no longer receive these messages if they have Verizon Wireless as their phone carrier.

What can you do?
To make sure people in your classes continue receiving your messages, ask them to download the mobile app or enable email notifications—both of which are free of charge. Our team’s also working hard on a solution that allows your classes to continue to use Remind by text, and we’ll share more details with you before January 28.

In the meantime, we’ll keep fighting to make sure educators, students, and parents have access to effective communication. To do this, we need your help: If using Remind has made a positive impact in your classroom, at your school, or anywhere in between, please ask Verizon to reverse the fee here:

We’re very grateful for your support, and we’ll be in touch soon with an update.

Dear Parent/Guardian,

I would like to inform you of the choir events that will take place this semester. Starting with our pre-competition concert which will occur on Tuesday, February 12 at 6:30 p.m. at the Bryant Middle School Main Gym. I will send a reminder home regarding this event as time draws closer.

The next event is Choral Performance Assessment which is the choir's group competition. It will be held between Thursday February 21 and Friday February 22 at Henderson State University in Arkadelphia. I do not know what specific day and time we will compete yet. I have already discussed with the students what to expect at this competition, as well as, what will be required of them to attend this competition. I would like to share this information with you as well. In order for a student to attend this competition, they must:

1. Pass four academic courses the 1st semester. Three have to be core classes.
2. Must have an A, B, or C average in choir.
3. Must have attended all choir concerts, this will include the Feb. 12 concert, or have completed the alternate concert assignment.
4. Must not receive detention or write-ups in choir starting now until the time of competition.
5. Must pass vocal and sight-reading assessments given in class.
6. Must receive a passing grade on Rehearsal Technique grades.

Students who meet these qualification will have the privilege of attending this competition. Students who do not meet the qualifications will be given an in-depth written assignment to make up the grade for this competition. Students will be informed if they do not meet the qualifications or are in danger of not meeting them.

The last event for the school year is the spring concert, which will be on Monday, May 13 in the BMS Blue Gym. More information will come later regarding this event.

Please let me know of any questions you may have. Also, if you want to check up on your child in reference to how they are doing in choir, please do not hesitate to contact me.

Thank You, ONLY
