Welcome Back to the 2016-2017 NCHS Orchestra Program

Welcome back students and parents!  We're excited to be kicking off this school year in preparation of the 22nd Annual Hauntcert - "Heroes & Villains".  To that end, we still need a number of volunteers to help us with the Hauntcert production and would be so appreciative if you could click here to volunteer a few hours of your time.  Right now, we are planning a "parade" of local everyday heroes to recognize toward the end of the concert. Filling the "hero parade coordinator" volunteer spot as soon as possible is one of our top priorities at this point.  Please consider helping us coordinate the recognition of some everyday local heroes!

Please click here to view a note from NCHS's Iron Pride organization.  They are a group of parents dedicated to connecting parents, faculty, and NCHS administration and working towards providing quality opportunities for our students. They have asked teachers to share this information with parents.

Our next NCHS Orchestra Parents (NOPA) meeting will be Monday, Oct 3rd at 7pm in the orchestra room (rm 50). The doors labeled "J" around the back will be open.  Please consider putting this date on your calendar as this will be our Hauntcert "nuts & bolts" meeting where we will start creating and bringing plans together for the event.  All parents are welcome to attend and we would certainly love to get to know our freshmen parents!

Uniforms have now been distributed and new ones ordered.  Please make sure your student lets us know if there are any buttons missing from shirts or jackets this week.  Replacements will be sent home soon. 

Parents - as a final part of the email blog subscription process, please print this email out and send to school with your student no later than Friday, Sept. 23.  If you or your student prefers, you may also have your student take a picture of the email with their phone and use that as verification of the assignment.  Just make sure to include the header with your email address in the picture.
