Choir Rehearsal Schedule Change

The St. Patrick’s School Choir will be following a new schedule starting this week. Rather than meeting after-school on Thursdays, rehearsal will take place during school on Fridays. The students will meet during the second half of recess and during Rule Time (i.e. quiet recess). This change will allow for a slightly longer rehearsal, allow Mrs. Tillman the music teacher to more actively participate, and help resolve schedule conflicts with other clubs and teams. Thank you all for your flexibility!
