Welcome to Choir for the 2021-2022 school year!
My name is Robbie Sparkman, and I am the choir director for Madisonville High School and Junior High School. This is my 19th year teaching in public schools. I graduated from Texas Tech where I majored in Music Education, and attended Southwestern Baptist Theological Seminary, studying church music and vocal music. I also taught computer courses in several tech schools before returning to the music classroom in 2005.
I am very excited to be here in Madisonville. So far, I'm finding this to be a wonderful place to live, work and teach. I hope that we can have a wonderful year in the choir program, have a lots of fun, and bring home some awards.
All students have received the Choir Handbook for 2021-2022. There are 3 pages at the back which must be returned to me, signed by parents and students. They are due on Friday, 8/27/2021. Please turn them in ASAP.
The choir fee for this year is $25, due by 9/10/2021.
We will begin our first fundraiser on Thursday, 9/2/2021. We will be selling high-quality rolls of trash bags. There are 50 bags on each roll. They are 1.3 mil and 33 gallon trash bags that will sell for $15/roll. People love these bags and always ask for them again once they've used them up. Students will have an order form with a small sample of the bags for demonstration. They will have 2 weeks to sell as many as they can. Orders will be available for pickup before and after our fall concert on October 25.
All students need to join the appropriate Remind Group, based on your choir. All parents need to join the appropriate Remind Group, based on whether your child is in HS or JH.
