I am writing to introduce myself as the new choir director for the remainder of this school year. My name is Ms. Meghan Gillespie. I currently teach at the 3 elementary schools in Central Berkshire as the Band director and the Choral director at 1 school. When I first started teaching in the District I had the position of Middle School Choral Director.

I am very excited to start working with your children. Through chorus and singing I am hoping to improve their musicality, reading tracking abilities, sense of beat and rhythm which will benefit reading fluency, their sense of confidence, and have some fun!


For the remainder of the year chorus will be as follows:

6th graders Mondays from 2:30-3:20

7th and 8th graders Wednesdays from 2:30-3:20

The rehearsal schedule is fairly flexible. If your child wishes to attend both rehearsals they are more than welcome to. Also if your child can not attend one rehearsal they can come to the other rehearsal that week. All chorus members need to attend at least one rehearsal a week.

**as concerts approach, students will be meeting on both days. I will give PLENTY of advance notice for these rehearsals**

The chorus will be performing 2 songs for the Concert on Wednesday December 13th at 7pm. I have attached lyric sheets for the 2 songs.

 If you wish your child to perform in the concert they must attend rehearsals on Monday the 11 AND Wednesday the 13th.

Dress for the concert is either White on top and Black on the bottom, or all Black.  Students should arrive at 630pm.

Students will be let out in time to make the late bus. If you have a concern about the length of your child’s late bus ride please contact myself or Mr. Falkowski to discuss a solution.

Do not hesitate to contact me with any questions as we try to make this a smooth and quick transition. I am available via


Thank you for supporting the music department and I look forward to working with your children!
