Or they could stay in Jonesboro and hang out at a Dollar General.

Ummmm ok so the only response is "its fine" I kinda wanted to know more details. I have been in choir 3 years and really love it, made all region and everything and was just hoping the choir there does as much as JHS. We do a lot!! Also wanted to know if the choir teacher is cool or whatever.

This is not some child wanting info on a school she is going to attend, this is some idiot trying to get people to trash WR Choir and Darlene Flippo. If people do it they are as bad as the one asking.

Ummm no I'm not tryin to stir up trouble, seriously guys, just wanted to know about the choir and stuff. And for your information I did go to the Walnut Ridge School site and the choir teacher really has nothing on her page so I couldn't find any information about them!!! I just wanted to see what choir would be like there if I moved there, that is all. Thank you xman for the info!!! I would go to the school but I don't drive so don't have a way to get there :(

WRHS has a fine choral program. For a school their size it is real good.

In the Spring, I would like to suggest an out door street concert on Abbey Road at Beatle Park.

Wow, I did not even know Mrs. Moore was still there. To the original poster, I was in choir with her many moons ago when in school, and she was awesome back then. Loved the music we sang. I am sure you would enjoy going to school and being in the choir there. It probably wouldn't be as big as your current school, but still good.

I'm just surprised Mrs. Moore is still there. I assumed she had retired. She has been there a long time and is a good teacher.

Umm, Walnut Ridge itself is an okay school and all, but the choir program sucks. Mrs. Darlene Moore hardly teaches and practices singing. She's always talking inspirational and motivational but we never actually sing. She complains about other teachers and school programs a lot. In my class last year, we sung a Christmas song, and she didn't even start rehearsing with us on the song until the DAY BEFORE THE CONCERT! And then at the concert, she started singing along with us, drowning us out, and messed up the lyrics by singing a different version of song than the one that she had (barely) taught us the day before! This was my freshman year and it was terrible! Also, she has no control over her class! Two girls in my class got in a fight one day and she wasn't even in their to handle it! It's bad! Although the new facilities and new choir room are super nice, she's a terrible teacher leading a terrible program!!

That is a shame, it used to be pretty good. Years ago I was in choir there under her and loved her. Learned a lot. Always thought she was really nice. TO this day choir was my favorite part about school. I miss singing a lot.

Like another poster stated, I am surprised she is still there. I assumed she had retired by now? Is she not close to retirement at least?

Some kids are a lot more disrespectful, skanky and just plain ignorant that in past years. And admin will not back up teachers on discipline for fear the folks will take their kids and run to Hoxie or home school.

As a Parent of two former students I can say this Mrs. Moore has NEVER drowned out her students!!!!! She loves her kids and treats them as such. even when they treat her poorly she treats them respectfully. Those of you downing her on here SHAME ON YOU! She is a FINE CHRISTIAN WOMAN!
