Sponsoring a Family:
The family we are sponsoring has 3 children and we have assigned each child to a class. The Chamber orchestra is buying for a 6 year old boy, the Classic orchestra is buying for a 7 year old girl, and the Concert orchestra is buying for a 9 year old girl. We have been asked to only provide 4 gifts per child for the family we are sponsoring. They have all requested learning games, coats, and shoes.
Since we can only collect 4 gifts each we are also going to collect gift cards for the family. They can be from places like Target, Walmart, Kroger, Publix, AMC, etc…
Also, our counseling department has identified some needy students at Harrison. We will be collecting gift cards for those students as well so that we can have more of you participate that want to.

Concert Orchestra: 9 year old girl – Shirt 10, Pants 10, Shoe 3, Coat 10.
Classic Orchestra: 7 year old girl – Shirt 10, Pants 10, Shoe 2, Coat 10.

Seating Assessment:
The results from the seating assessment are posted. Those that have not yet taken their test will make it up in class when we return. Solo auditions for chamber will also be when we return.

Finals:
I can’t believe it is already finals time next week! Our review day is on Monday where you will receive a study guide. The final is multiple choice and is a culmination of everything we have learned this semester. It will have key signatures, time signatures, music history from our first concert, elements of music and various other questions.

Cobb County Performance Assessment:
Part of your assessment for the semester is a pre and post-test on a G Major scale. Everyone must complete the post-test on charms by the end of the semester. It is available now for you to complete in charms called Post-Test G Major Scale.

Week 13: Oct 30-Nov 3

Fall Concert:
Great job everyone on a beautiful concert!

Performances:
Due West Holiday Market performance is on Saturday as well as the Belk Charity event where are students will be performing. We also have upcoming performances at Burnt Hickory Baptist, Shady Grove Nursing Home, and the Harrison Merry Market.

Fundraiser:
A note from our president Elise Pacitti:
Belk Charity Day is Nov 4th at Belk in Marietta
3636 Dallas Highway
Marietta GA.

Time of event is from 6 am to 10 am.  This will be the second year that HHS Orchestra has participated and we had a great time last year.

Our students played at the event last year and were very well received!!

This is how Charity Day works.
Belk gives us tickets worth five dollars apiece. Your student sells the tickets to family, friends and neighbors. ONE HUNDRED PERCENT of the proceeds goes directly into your students account and can be used toward dues, trip or other needs (as long as dues are paid in full first).

We are also given a time slot prior to the event on Nov 4th to sell tickets to shoppers as they enter the store. This year we have been given an excellent, 2 hour slot from 6 pm-8 pm on Saturday Oct 28th. Prime shopping time!!

There is a sign-up sheet in the Orchestra room for students to sign up for 30 min increments to sell tickets. We need to limit number of students there are at any given time to avoid overwhelming shoppers. These slots will go quickly so please sign up Monday or Tuesday. If we need more time available, I can ask for an additional date.

Orchestra parents will be at the store during this time on Oct 28th and will supervise students and record payments. Students should be on their best behavior.

Please have your student dress in orchestra polo and khaki pants. Feel free to make a poster, bring balloons (green and blue) or other ways to show your orchestra spirit. Harrison HS shirts, or Orchestra Spirit Wear is also fine.

I will meet students inside the front door of Belk at 5:50 pm on Saturday, Oct 28th to give them instructions.

We will be assigned a time slot on Sat Nov 4th for our group’s prime shopping time. This is when our students will perform some holiday tunes. Mrs. Baddock will select students to play at this event. I have not received confirmation on our time slot yet, but I have requested 9-10 am. HHS participants can shop anytime between 6 am and 10 am. Bring your Ticket!!! The first 100 ticket holders through the door on Nov 4th are given a gift card. Amounts vary from $5 -$1000.

Your $5 ticket can be used that day only to receive $5 off a single purchase in store.

I will be in orchestra classes on Monday and Tuesday to assign interested students their tickets. Only those students that wish to participate will be given tickets. Please discuss with your student how many tickets they wish to take. Money should be placed in envelope with students name CLEARLY written and placed in black box by Friday Nov 3rd. Cash or check is fine. Checks should be made payable to HHOB.  Unsold tickets should be returned to black box by Nov 3rd. This event is optional and is simply an opportunity for students to make money for dues, trip and other expenses. The Orchestra Board takes great care to offer multiple, quality opportunities for students to participate in fundraising.

Please e mail me with any questions related to Belk Charity Days. [email protected]

Fundraiser:
A note from our president Elise Pacitti:
Belk Charity Day is Nov 4th at Belk in Marietta
3636 Dallas Highway
Marietta GA.

Time of event is from 6 am to 10 am.  This will be the second year that HHS Orchestra has participated and we had a great time last year.

Our students played at the event last year and were very well received!!

This is how Charity Day works.
Belk gives us tickets worth five dollars apiece. Your student sells the tickets to family, friends and neighbors. ONE HUNDRED PERCENT of the proceeds goes directly into your students account and can be used toward dues, trip or other needs (as long as dues are paid in full first).

We are also given a time slot prior to the event on Nov 4th to sell tickets to shoppers as they enter the store. This year we have been given an excellent, 2 hour slot from 6 pm-8 pm on Saturday Oct 28th. Prime shopping time!!

There is a sign-up sheet in the Orchestra room for students to sign up for 30 min increments to sell tickets. We need to limit number of students there are at any given time to avoid overwhelming shoppers. These slots will go quickly so please sign up Monday or Tuesday. If we need more time available, I can ask for an additional date.

Orchestra parents will be at the store during this time on Oct 28th and will supervise students and record payments. Students should be on their best behavior.

Please have your student dress in orchestra polo and khaki pants. Feel free to make a poster, bring balloons (green and blue) or other ways to show your orchestra spirit. Harrison HS shirts, or Orchestra Spirit Wear is also fine.

I will meet students inside the front door of Belk at 5:50 pm on Saturday, Oct 28th to give them instructions.

We will be assigned a time slot on Sat Nov 4th for our group’s prime shopping time. This is when our students will perform some holiday tunes. Mrs. Baddock will select students to play at this event. I have not received confirmation on our time slot yet, but I have requested 9-10 am. HHS participants can shop anytime between 6 am and 10 am. Bring your Ticket!!! The first 100 ticket holders through the door on Nov 4th are given a gift card. Amounts vary from $5 -$1000.

Your $5 ticket can be used that day only to receive $5 off a single purchase in store.

I will be in orchestra classes on Monday and Tuesday to assign interested students their tickets. Only those students that wish to participate will be given tickets. Please discuss with your student how many tickets they wish to take. Money should be placed in envelope with students name CLEARLY written and placed in black box by Friday Nov 3rd. Cash or check is fine. Checks should be made payable to HHOB.  Unsold tickets should be returned to black box by Nov 3rd. This event is optional and is simply an opportunity for students to make money for dues, trip and other expenses. The Orchestra Board takes great care to offer multiple, quality opportunities for students to participate in fundraising.

Please e mail me with any questions related to Belk Charity Days. [email protected]

We look forward to seeing you at Belk on Nov 4th!!
