SPIRIT CREW WAS BRIGHT & LOUD AT UIL THIS PAST SATURDAY: Thanks to the parents & family who came out in support of our kids this weekend! It was a great send off to Galena Park in the morning, then to see & hear all of the cheering in the stands really helped boost our kids’ performances. AND–to top it off, seeing the welcome when we arrived back at ORHS was amazing!! The kids on the buses were so surprised and so appreciative of the support & they could feel the love!
TRUNK OR TREAT/ALL THINGS “FRIGHT & BOO-TIFUL” WED OCT 31: Please sign up in Charms and bring Halloween candy & your decorated vehicles for our trunk or treat event at Woodforest Stadium directly following the band rehearsal on Wed Oct 31.

The assigned collectors will meet you at Woodforest that evening.
