Hello War Eagle Band!
Thank you to all the parent volunteers who helped out at the game last Friday. We really appreciate it and cannot do what we do without your help!
Upcoming Events that will need Parent Volunteers
#1- It is time to wash our uniforms. The students have worn them 3 times and as you can imagine our uniforms are in need of a washing. Please contact Diane Watson if you can help.
#2- This week you will receive information about volunteering to work at the USBands contest on Saturday, September 27th at Woodforest Stadium. Not only is the ORHS Band going to compete for the first time this season…but this is also a major fundraiser event for our program. Many volunteers will be needed to help make this event a success, so we are sure there is a job for you. You will be receiving information this week from Gina Torres.
