About our school clubs.

Wildcats Art Club

The Harmony Wildcats Art Club is established to promote a creative outlet for those students seeking additional art. Students will be creating their own art as well as working collaboratively. The group will also work towards art awareness within the surrounding community.

The Wildcats Art Club is open to Harmony 4th grade students and will meet most Wednesday mornings at 7:30.

Chorus

Chorus is open to 4th and 5th graders. The club's mission is to develop young vocalists' technique and singing styles through exciting repertoire. The Chorus Club performs for the community through a fall concert as well as a spring musical in which club members may choose to audition. Information about the musical will release in the late fall semester.

Chorus Club dues are $15, which pays for t-shirts and a live, professional pianist.

Chorus Club rehearsals start on August 25th at 7:00am. It is imperative that parents drop their students off in the car rider lane at 7:00, as the rehearsal begins as soon as each student enters the building. This is a change from last year's start time, which was 7:20. Because both 4th and 5th grade will rehearse at the same time, the club time has been extended. If you arrive in the car rider line, and a teacher is not there to greet your student, you must walk them in through the front doors to the music room yourself.
