Orchestra News
Spirit wear is finally here!!

The sale starts today until November 1 at midnight!
The students have been asking for years for Orchestra spirit wear.
We are excited to announce our new on-line store for spirit wear for the OHS Orchestra.   The sale will not be extended! 
This will be the only time this year the store will be available for spirit wear purchases. 
The orders will be ready for pick up on November 15th.   It's so easy, just follow the link to the on-line store and start purchasing your students spirit wear!  Link to on-line store is below.

Cheesecake Fundraiser

We have 11 more days for this tasty fundraiser, including 2 weekends. 

Thank you for your active participation in the fundraiser in advance.

Remember....  Cheesecakes will be delivered the Monday before Thanksgiving.

Postcard Fundraiser
By now your students should have received 5 postcards.  Please mail these to friends, family or local businesses, this is a great way for donors to receive a tax deductible donation and for the Orchestra to receive 100% of the funds. 
(A $.34 stamp is required to mail each postcard.)
If you prefer not mailing them yourself, bring address postcards into Mr. O and the Boosters will get them in the mail.

An example of how well this can work: If each student’s 5 postcards yields $5 (one coffee at Starbucks) a piece, 150 student will raise $3,750.
