LVHS Choir Parents

Hello from the Choir Office!  The following information is provided to help in assisting your student with his/her online Choir class:


  • All assignments are listed in Canvas. 
  • Grades are posted in Canvas and will transfer to Infinite Campus (usually overnight - but not always).
  • Google Classroom is also being utilized to host at home practice tracks and synchronous learning rehearsal information (i.e. choral music, recorded parts, examples of the pieces, etc.).
  • The choir fee of $10.00 will be applied to the LVHS Choir Department - Virtual Performance Project Software and Production.  The Choir course and uniform rental fee is normally $80.00, but due to Covid 19, we are reducing the cost by $70.00. 
  • Students and parents may pay online at: lvwildcats.com
  • Please do not create a new account - students should follow the login instructions on the home page.
  • Go to Online Store (top right) - Then Performing Arts (left)
  • Look for Choir Software - No Photo Available and the cost of $10.00
  • This $10.00 fee is currently due
  • Our Handbook Contracts - pages 22-24 are due September 23, 2020.  Please ask your student about these forms, as they require parent signatures.  Students without the contracts will not be allowed to participate in the Virtual project and will not receive the Summative grade for Semester 1.
  • The video submission for the virtual project is a Semester 1 Summative grade. During online synchronous rehearsals, non-auditioned choir students are not required to sing in front of their peers. Audition only choirs are expected to sing when called upon.
  • Technology is a critical part of vocal recordings and video submissions.  Please let your student know that they may communicate any issues with Mrs. Tyler or Mrs. Daniel.
  • VETERANS:  Choir Uniform Drop Off Day is Oct. 26, 2020.  Please mark your calendar:  12:00 - 1:15 p.m.  Parents may also stop by from: 7:30 - 8:15 a.m.
  • The Choir program is focused around this Motivational Framework:
    • Inclusion
    • Attitude
    • Meaning
    • Competence

It is my hope that every student will feel involved and will try to experience new things musically.  Our attitudes make the difference and even on days when I feel beyond exhausted, I know that your student will give me more meaning to this distance learning experience.  In order for our students to grow, we must have a way to hear or see the work - or work in progress.  :)  Audio and Video submissions will be required.  Please assist your child by asking him/her questions.  Our goal is to improve through practice, but that rehearsal time at home, is the main 'homework' for a performance based class.  Even if they spend 30 minutes per day on the songs assigned, they will progress in their singing.  


Please feel free to contact me with any questions or concerns. I can be reached via email at:  [email protected]


All my best,


Mrs. Tyler :)
