Community Service Opportunities:
The Northwest Georgia Heart Walk on November 4th, 2017 at the Marietta Square is looking for volunteers. We would love to see local high school students come out to support this great cause!
Here is the volunteer schedule for that day:
6:00 am – Arrive at event, check in at volunteer /check-in area (I will send out a map pointing this area out closer to the event)
6:15a.m. – 7:15 a.m. – Go to your station and begin set-up
7:15 a.m. – 11:00 a.m. – Man your station and please never leave it unattended.
11:30 a.m. – 1:00 p.m. – Break down, clean – up, load
Volunteers are crucial to ensuring our event is a success, and I really appreciate you considering The American Heart Association as a nonprofit you would like to support. I will send out more specific communication to all volunteers closer to the event. In the meantime, please let me know if you have any questions!
Dashing through the Square is an annual run that is sponsored by Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority which is what Ms. Moye is a member of. (Our former assistant principal) She is asking if we have any volunteers to run hydration stations with her.
Here is a link to register, but if you want to volunteer just email me and I’ll get you in touch with her.

We are buddying with the special needs baseball team this Saturday at 10:15 am. Arrive at 9:45 and wear a Harrison Orchestra shirt (or a Harrison shirt if you don’t have an orchestra one yet).

Congrats to the following students for making it to the second round of All-State auditions: Sophie B, Samantha F, Eunice K, Liam M, and Kinsey S!

Thank you so much for the continued purchases off of the wish list! We definitely do not need any more hand sanitizer! We are good for the year – thank you! We need a few more small things like post it notes, paper clips, and more mutes and rosin but we are in much better shape. Thank you!
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.
