Hauntcert Rehearsal #2

Orchestra updates for the week of Sept. 25th: 

1.  Our next Hauntcert combined rehearsal is this Wednesday afternoon (Sept 27), will be from 3:30-6:00 pm, and will involve Chamber, Intermezzo, and Sinfonia orchestras. Students will need to bring their folding music stands from home to school that morning and cellists will need to bring their instruments to school that day as well. Students will need to again be picked up at door J around the back of the building. Please make arrangements to carpool if you are unable to pick your student up promptly at 6:00 pm. 

2.  Other than a few back ordered items, all uniform parts have now been distributed. Please make sure new items fit and that arrangements have been made to have them hemmed. Also please make sure that you have double checked the uniform policies in the syllabus and have provided the appropriate shoes, socks, etc.

3.  We still have a number of openings on the Hauntcert volunteer list that we are looking to fill. You can click here to volunteer for Hauntcert 2017. A new position has been added to the volunteer list and we are looking for a couple of "dry ice wranglers" to help us with "mad scientist experiments". 

4. We are also still looking for three people interested in shadowing some of our NOPA executive board members so that they can take over those offices next year.  The positions don't involve a huge amount of commitment, so if you are interested in the offices of president, treasurer, and refreshment chair, please let Mrs. Siebenthal know.

4.  If you have signed up for the NY trip, please make sure that you have your deposit in and that the next payment (Oct 1st) is on your mind. Our first payment to the travel agent is due at the beginning of October and we need to make sure that there is enough money in the account to cover the bill.
