Introducing: The Core Us!

Attention all Elite students grades 3rd-12th!

Join VAPA Lead Amy Ciceri in developing Elite’s first virtual choir club! The main purpose of this new social club will be to connect diverse students in fun and meaningful ways through the positive power of music and expression. Peers will have opportunities to listen to each other and share stories that add significant value to the songs we will sing together. Students will be divided into 3 age groups: 3rd-5th; 6th-8th; and 9th-12th.

Let’s join in the music and build Elite’s new singing club together!

The Core Us has already held their informational meeting, but please reach out to Amy Ciceri if you are interested!
