Our Cheesecake Sales Kickoff this week!!
All  orchestra classes should have the information, order forms they need by Friday afternoon.

SWEETZ CHEESECAKES are always a hit for Thanksgiving dessert and will arrive Monday, November 23, just in time for the holiday. Or if you like keep them frozen for the Winter Holidays, yummy!!

The student will have two full weeks to sell and orders will be due on  October 30th (right before the 4 day weekend).  All orders will need to be picked up on Monday, November 23rd, time and location TBD.

Fund from our Cheesecake sales help defer  the cost of our spring trip.

On that Monday, November 23rd, volunteers will be needed to distribute the cheesecakes before the students pick up their orders.  If you can volunteer, contact Jennifer Skangos and  Terri Leckner .  

Why not enjoy the fall weather this weekend while selling some cheesecakes to your neighbors.

Letter Writing Campaign
Many of us have friend and relatives who reside out of the area and therefore are unable to participate in our fundraising activities (Cheesecakes, Car Washes). 

With this in mind,we have created a fundraising letter to be mailed with a personal note to friends and family.  Donations are  Tax Deductible, and the Orchestra benefits 100%.
Please see the attached letter. 

This is also an excellent opportunity to offer to those who would prefer not to purchase a Cheesecake.  Don't hesitate to offer this option to neighbors and friends, you will be surprised by the willingness to donate.

OCTOBER 24TH          8am-11am

Saturday, October 24th from 8-11, the Orchestra will be hosting a Car Wash outside the Giant in Hunter Mill Shopping Center.  Please encourage your children to participate.  It is a fun way  to help out our orchestra program.
Teamwork, Camaraderie,Passion and Excellence

IT'S NOT TO LATE..........


Oakton High School is home to a thriving orchestra program and the musicians and their parents are great prospects for your business. 

 Advertising in our program allows your business to reach a community of musicians and music lovers!

Our dedicated orchestra students take private lessons and  participate in a wide variety of orchestral activities throughout the year.

If this sounds appealing (and potentially profitable), please consider advertising in our concert programs!  We publish five concert programs during the school year, one for each school concert, which are dutifully attended by a dedicated cadre of parents, friends and family.  Rates are affordable too!  Please see the attached flyer and order from for more information.  The advertising flyer is also available under the "Forms and Documents" tab of our website at OHS Orchestra Website.  Please contact Jennifer Skangos , at (703) 501-0242 with questions.
