PAVILION UPDATE/REMINDERS:
The concert season is still going strong, and thanks to the parent volunteers & white shirt committee who’ve worked hard to honor our commitment! As a reminder, if you sign up for an alternate position for a show, you must be available to work when there is a cancellation. Please also give plenty of notice if you aren’t able to work a show, so the white shirts can fill that spot in a timely manner. Anyquestions please contact the white shirt committee. orhsbandpavilion@gmail.com

Thank you for your continued support of our amazing students and this incredible booster club!
GO WAR EAGLE BAND!
