Special Needs Baseball:
Thanks to all that volunteered on Saturday!
Going away party:
I was asked to share this:
Hi my name is Hannah McClung, I am a Harrison Orchestra alumni that graduated in 2016. My fellow alumni Lucy Barrett and I are throwing Mrs. Baddock a party to celebrate her 10 amazing years at Harrison! We are having it on Saturday May 5 from 2:00-5:00 pm in the orchestra room. This is a drop in event, feel free to stop in and celebrate Mrs. B and wish her well at North Cobb Christian! All current students, alumni and parents are invited to come party. Cake and drinks will be provided. We hope to see you there!
This week we are campaigning for leadership positions for next year. Make sure to send me a paragraph about what position you want to try for and why you would do a good job in that position. You can then give me a PowerPoint or video to play for the other classes or you can talk to your teachers about coming to campaign yourself in the other classes. We will vote for leadership next week and we will announce the winners at the banquet.
Senior Showcase Concert:
Our concert is next Thursday, May 3rd at 7:00 pm. We have each class performing as well as some of our talented seniors doing solos. This will be a fun concert and of course my last one at Harrison. L I hope you all make plans to attend!
Seniors – it’s time to take your survey for the banquet! Please have it completed by April 27th.
The posters are at the place where they need to start putting pictures on them. Please send in the poster pictures asap. We need about 10 pictures to place on the poster. If you don’t want to send in actual pictures you can email them to me and we will print them. They will be glued onto the poster so if you don’t want them used – don’t send them. Please make sure they are marked with the senior’s name on the pictures. These posters are theirs to keep after the banquet.
I also need an electronic copy of a senior picture and a baby picture. (I can scan them if you only have prints).
Section of the Week:
Great job to the following sections for winning section of the week last week: Classic 1st Violins, Chamber 1st Violins, and Concert Cellos!
Class Supply Needs:
Harrison Orchestra’s List on Amazon.com
Hey guys, we have some cool stuff planned for our last concert but we need some items that are on the list. Please consider purchasing these for us! We also need a music stamp. We use it to stamp new music so that it hopefully has less chance of getting lost.
If anyone would like to make any payments to the orchestra through Paypal, the easiest way to pay is by typing “Paypal.me/HHOB” into your internet browser. Please include the student’s name in the box that says “Write a note,” and DON’T click “paying for a good or service.” Otherwise you can always send in cash or check to HHOB.
