High School and Middle School also enjoyed a trip to Footloose in Marshall last week. Next week, March 9, we are invited to see Artsview’s production of “Once Upon a Mattress”. You should have permission slips to fill out and return.

Middle School is working on “Million Dreams”, “Cups”, “Panis Angelicus”, “Sing Forever to the Lord”

High School is working hard getting ready for Contest. Contest will be March 30 in Texarkana at Texas High. We are preparing three songs as well as practicing for sight reading.

We will have Dr. Mary Haiden from Kilgore College come next week to visit with our high school students. She will be speaking about college scholarships and listening and critiquing our contest songs.

It’s a busy time for choir, but will be so worth it when you hear them!!

February 21-25

7th/8th/High School

We have the opportunity to go see Footloose in Marshall Wednesday, February 23.  We will meet at 5 in the choir room and load the bus and head to the Marshall Civic Center to watch East Texas Baptist University present this fun musical.  We will make a quick stop on the way to get food(some of the students will be coming straight from track). Please make sure your child has money if they want to eat.

If you have not already sent back the permission slip, I need it asap.  Parents are invited.  I just need a headcount by February 18, Friday.  (also 6th grade siblings if they are in choir currently – please contact me)

We should be back by 10 p.m., but will keep you posted about our arrival time.

7th and 8th grade students 

These students participated in Solo Contest Friday, February 18.  I will post results as soon as possible.  I am so proud of how they have worked on these solos.  Our judge, Mrs. Watson, is a classically trained opera singer who has performed all over the United States.  She leads worship at her church, and also gives private voice lessons.  We are so thankful for her presence and contributions to the White Oak Choir program!

Varsity Choir

Varsity Choir is preparing for our next contest that will be March 30 at Texas High School in Texarkana.  They will be judged on sight reading and a concert performance.  Stay tuned for information about this trip!


6th Grade Choir

Our last day of this nine weeks is March 11.  We will close out the nine weeks with a little mini performance. Our tentative date for this is March 10 at 3:15 p.m. in the auditorium. You will be getting a note about this with a confirmed date next week.

The following 9 weeks will be an honors type choir with students who look to add choir to their middle school schedule for the following year.  There is so much talent in this grade.  I hope many choose to continue their musical endeavors in choir!


Greetings.  What a nice little break we had.  Time to catch up!
