**Come Meet our New Choir Director**

posted May 28, 2017, 9:18 PM by Eldorado Choirs

Good Morning All,

I hope everyone is enjoying their summer so far! 

Please join us Thursday June 1, 2017 at 6:30 in the Eldorado Choir Room for a Meet and Greet with our new choir director Julia Rossignol. We are very excited to have Julia join Eldorado. The kids got a chance to meet her before school ended and they all seem very excited. We hope that you can save some time on Thursday evening to join us!! 

This is a great opportunity to meet fellow parents in the program as well as the Booster Board. We would love to see more parents involved in the meetings. We would like to also take time to recognize our incoming freshmen students and families!

There are some great opportunities coming up this summer to fundraise for the choir fees. We will have the information available for you to pick up Thursday.

We still have some Board positions available to fill, we would love to have people in place before the new school year. We had a great team this year, and would love to see that dynamic continue. If you are interested in serving please come see me after the meeting Thursday for more details. 

We are excited to see you all next week! Have a great weekend and enjoy your Memorial Holiday.

President, Eldorado Choir Boosters

Hello Choir families,

Another year has come and gone so quickly, and although this year has brought many challenges our way, all things considered, we have had a successful year filled with beautiful music! I am excited to see what great things are in store for the program next year.

It has been a privilege and such a joy to get to know your children while serving on the board.  Thank you for your constant support of the Eldorado High School Choir program.  

Christi Bachmann is your newly elected Choir Booster President for the 2017/2018 school year. Please reach out to Christi with any future questions or concerns you may have concerning the choir program.

Thank you and have a great summer!

Dear EHS Choir Community,

It is with a heavy heart that I inform you of my departure from Eldorado High School. At the conclusion of this school year, I plan to pursue a position that better fits the ever changing needs of my family. 

As I reflect on what will be 10 years in the classroom this May, I am astounded at the sheer number of students and parents with whom I've had the pleasure of working. Teaching young people to make great music was always my singular goal when starting my teaching career. I am proud to say that, together, we have accomplished that goal tenfold. I sincerely thank you for an incredible journey these last 6 years. I have learned many important lessons, grown both professionally and personally, and have been lucky enough to create amazing music with amazing young people. 

Should you have any questions regarding the future of the EHS Choir program or the upcoming transition, please contact the Eldorado Administration. 

Sincerely, 

--

Board slate clarification

posted Apr 12, 2017, 1:00 PM by Eldorado Choirs

I would like to offer clarification on the previous email concerning the slate that was formulated at Tuesday's parent meeting which included names of those interested in serving.  In no way was that to say the slate was final and decided upon. It is open to parents/guardians who would be interested in serving on the Board. What was listed on the email was to inform the choir community what positions were available. As it stated on the email if you are interested in serving and would like to include your name on the slate, please reach out to us as soon as possible. The VP of show choirs will be determined after auditions are completed.  The final slate will be voted on at the May parent meeting. I apologize for any confusion the previous email may have caused.

As always if you have any questions, please feel free to reach out to any of the Boosters!

The slate that was formulated at Tuesday's parent meeting is as follows:

VP of Robed Choirs - Yolanda Fabian
VP of 24 Carat - no one volunteered or has been nominated for this position
