National Anthem at Homecoming Information

Image result for american flagThe combined NCHS Choirs will perform the national anthem at the Homecoming football game this Friday, October 5. Students should meet in the Auditorium no later than 6:30 pm. The doors by the bus lane and Door J behind the school will be open for students to enter.  We will rehearse together, then walk as a group to the football field and will be performing the national anthem on the track on the 50 yard line. Students will be admitted to the game for free.  Once we are done singing (approx. 6:55), students are free to leave or stay for the game. This is a required performance for all choir members.  Any parents who don't want to go to the game are welcome to come and listen to us warm up together in the Auditorium! 

There is a *slight* chance of rain being forecast for Friday evening. If it's raining, we won't sing. I will keep everyone updated on Remind, Twitter, Facebook, and Instagram.  Looking forward to a great performance!

 The NCHS Choirs spirit wear store is now open! We have several different designs to choose from, and all are high quality and last through many wears. Students are NOT required to purchase a shirt for the Spaghetti Supper this year, as it is more appropriate to wear our concert black for the theme of our program this year.  However, spirit wear is enthusiastically encouraged for students, parents, friends, and supporters!

The store is open through Friday, October 12. All orders are paid online and items will be delivered to the school and will be handed out.

Football Concessions - Friday, Aug. 31

Image result for help neededWe have been assigned to sell concessions at the Chili Bowl game - NCHS vs Normal West - on Friday, August 31.  We are also doing this with Drama, FBLA, and Journalism.  We need to supply 2-3 people for the setup shift, and 6 people for the shifts during the game.  Students are welcome to sign up, but we must have some adults as well, as they are the only ones allowed to run some of the machines.  Please click on this Sign-Up Genius link to help out...it's a great money maker for us!
