Dear parents and families of St. Thomas,
I am so excited to tell you about all of my plans for the students and families at St. Thomas this year! School wide this this Fall the students will be focusing on music and performing arts, with a community-welcoming Christmas concert, themed “Christmas Around the World!” Then, in the Spring, the focus shifts to art, offering students the opportunity to enter in several well-known art competitions, including the Houston Livestock Show and Rodeo!
For those students wanting to get even more involved than their daily fine arts classes, I am forming a competitive choir and holding a Spring musical this year! Auditions for the choir will be on September 17th from 3:30-4:30pm in the Sanctuary, there are still 5-6 spots available to audition on this day. Students who have signed up for an audition will have a form sent home informing parents of the time and further details. Eligible students should be enthusiastic, fluent 2nd – 5th grade readers who are able to carry a tune (think ABCs or Happy Birthday), can focus in a fast-paced musical setting, and who can commit to a weekly rehearsal after school and several performances throughout the year. Rehearsals will be every Monday from 3:30-4:30 starting October 22nd. The choir will hopefully be ready to enter into a regional Spring music competition at the end of April 2019.
