ACTIVITY FEE: DO NOT PAY FEE on the first day of choir
There is an activity fee for elementary choir members as set by the Jamestown School Board. Please check with your school’s principal or secretary at your school office about the amount the fee will be for your family. The fee varies according to a family’s financial situation. Pay this fee at YOUR SCHOOL’S OFFICE after you find out what your student/s fee is. The secretary at your school will process your fee. Students from St. John’s should also give their payment to their school secretary.
Please do not bring your payment to choir rehearsal.
The standard fee is $50 for each choir member. The reason for this fee being larger than other elementary fees is because our season is eight months long rather than eight weeks as compared to other activities. Remember to check with your school’s principal about the fees and the cap on total fees for each student.
Checks should be made payable to Jamestown Public Schools
I am looking forward to our first rehearsal together. It should be a great year for the Jamestown Boys’ Choir & the Sunshine Girls’ Choir. More detailed information / policies / schedules will be given to students at our first rehearsal. All updated information may be found on your school/s website under Jamestown Children’s Choir.
