CONCERT CHOIR- Updates for May 26

Hello all,
A bunch of info headed your way on here...just know if you feel overwhelmed or need help, all you have to do is ask. I can be somewhat flexible on assignment due dates if you need it. But get it done as soon as you can so I can mark it and give you a grade for completing these assignments. I will make things as simple and stress free as possible, but ultimately you still have to get the work done. Stay in communication and you will do just fine.
