Soul Singer Handbook 2017-2018
Soul Singers have been a tradition in the Homer School District for many years. The ensemble originated with Mrs. Sue Bonne', longtime music teacher in Homer and for whom the auditorium is named. These singers are ambassadors of the school and exhibit only the best of Homer's Blue Pride motto. Soul Singers are expected to be leaders and responsible citizens in the classroom and throughout our school and community.
Rehearsals are every Tuesday after school from 3:30 - 4:15. Soul Singers should bring a healthy snack to eat. They will be dismissed promptly at 4:15 from the front of the school. (Rehearsal will be cancelled if after school activities are cancelled.) Soul Singers also rehearse during every school day 4 from 2:35 - 3:15. Attendance at all rehearsals is mandatory.

Soul Singer Behavior Contract -
Today is a new day at the Homer Intermediate School. I made a pledge of Pride in everything I do. I'll show Partnership and Respect with others I see today. My Integrity will guide me in every single way. I'll use Diversity and Excellence to lead me in what I do. Because I have BIG BLUE PRIDE and to show it it what I choose!
As a Soul Singer, I understand that I will be held accountable for the expectations outlined in the school pledge. If I am unable to meet this standard for behavior and effort, I will be removed from Soul Singers.
We use the 3 strike rule in chorus and Soul Singers. One strike counts for both chorus and Soul Singers at the same time.
