Hello ORHS Band Boosters!
Hope this finds you resting today from the busy week we just had! Our students had a very challenging week and accomplished so much in a short time: to learn & polish the end of the marching show, participate in the Homecoming parade & pep rally on Wed, the football game/Homecoming halftime on Friday, and to participate in the BOA Marching Contest on Saturday! WOW! Way to go students! AND A BIG THANK YOU to all the parents, volunteers, chaperones, pit crew, spirit crew, meal crew, uniform washing crew and prop building crew who have stepped up and worked together to make it all happen for our kids! YOU ARE AMAZING!!!
This will continue to be a very busy month, so keep an eye on the calendar, in Charms, email updates and Stay In the KNOW!

It takes a lot of moving parts to make a successful booster organization. And you are a valuable part!

Our next Spirit Night will be Thurs Oct 19th 6:00pm -8:00pm at the Chick-fil-A on Sawdust. There is a flyer that will be available at the booster meeting this Tues. There will also be extras that your student can pick up in the band hall. You can present the flyer at the restaurant or drive thru on Thursday, and ORHS Band will get a percentage of the sale. So plan to come out & support our students in a big way!
SPIRIT SHOUT OUT:
It is great to see more parents signing up to help with Spirit Committee! Please join us this Saturday as we cheer the students to victory for the Lonestar Preview marching contest. See Charms and Remind 101 for more info.
WOW! The New Bling completely SOLD OUT at it’s debut on Friday! You don’t want to miss out on the beautiful 1600+ rhinestone design, so please email Terri & Carol at email@example.com if you are interested in ordering this beautiful BLING!
Spirit committee will also be decorating the band hall before the UIL Marching Contest on Oct 24th. We need lots of help with balloons, streamers, posters, etc. Tentative date will be Oct 23rd. More information to come.
The concert season at the Pavilion is coming to a close, but there are still approx 7 concerts that need volunteers! You still have time to earn those valuable points towards your student’s Fair Share and help our ORHS Band Boosters keep this awesome program for next year.
