Senior Showcase Concert:
It is this Thursday, May 3rd at 7:00 pm in the Harrison Theater. We have each class performing as well as some of our talented seniors doing solos. All orchestra students must arrive by 6:30 pm and be dressed in their formal uniform and tuning in the orchestra room. If you are doing senior solos you will arrive early to sound check and leadership needs to be there early.
We still have 56 students that have not responded for the banquet yet, and 9 of those are seniors. Please make sure you turn in the banquet form to let us know who is attending. We had to give an initial number to the caterer and it needs to be as accurate as possible.
Special Needs Baseball:
We get to buddy up with our special needs baseball team again on Saturday. The game begins at 10:15 am. There is a sign-up sheet in the orchestra room and there are only a couple of spots left that need to be filled. Here are a few reminders:
Wear a Harrison Orchestra shirt
Arrive 20 minutes early to be briefed by the coaches and get paired up with an athlete.
Location: Horizon Field (4000 S. Main Street Acworth 30101)
Weather cancellations will be posted on the Horizon League website (www.acworthspecialneeds.com)
No cleats on the field
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!
Seniors there are still so many of you that have not taken this survey! Please make sure you have this done by Monday.
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).
