LETTERING  GUIDELINES  
The  rules  for  lettering  in  choir  are  just  guidelines  that  help  Ms.  Peterson  determine  the  awards  
at  the  end  of  the  academic  year.  The  requirements  to  earn  an  award  are  not  always  easy  and  
will  require  choir  students  to  go  above  and  beyond  what  is  expected  in  the  classroom.    Those  
chosen  to  letter  must  have  represented  the  choir  in  a  positive  way  through  their  commitment,  
performance  and  efforts  throughout  the  year.    You  may  letter  more  than  once  throughout  
your  choir  career.    
 
To  earn  any  kind  of  award  designation,  you  must  be  enrolled  in  choir  for  the  entire  2014-­‐
2015  Academic  Year  and  participate  in  ALL  mandatory  rehearsals,  concerts  and  contests.    
 
REQUIREMENTS  
In  order  to  earn  a  Varsity  Letter  at  the  end  of  each  academic  year,  you  must  meet  the  
following  criteria:  
Be  a  supportive  musician  to  everyone  and  HAVE  A  POSITIVE  ATTITUDE  for  the  rest  of  the  
group!  
Participate  in  ALL  mandatory  rehearsals,  concerts,  and  competitions.  
You  must  earn  an  “A”  in  choir  –  both  semesters  (fall  and  spring)  
If  you  have  participated  in  choir  four  years,  you  can  earn  a  varsity  letter  after  completing  
your  senior  season  in  good  standing.  If  a  musician  transfers  from  another  school  and  has  
been  in  choir  during  their  previous  years,  those  previous  years  will  be  counted  toward  
the  letter.  
It  is  up  to  Ms.  Peterson’s  discretion  regarding  a  student’s  attitude,  punctuality,  effort,  
and  commitment  to  the  choral  program.  This  will  be  a  factor  as  to  whether  or  not  you  
earn  the  award.
