Halloween Parade!

It’s that time of year: bonfires, chilly weather (finally), pumpkin picking, and…Halloween!

We’re so excited to announce our float theme: the 3-Mile House!

The 3-Mile House is a historical building, now burned down, with a spooky reputation…it was one of the most haunted locations in Southern Illinois. What better way to celebrate the history of our state than a local and Halloween-themed location?!

Details can be found on the attached flyer. The Boosters and Scott Credit Union are working hard to create an amazing float for the parade, and we want you to be a part of the production! Dress up as a creepy spirit (see examples on the flyer–get creative!) or reach out to your teacher, as the first 100 students to request it will receive a ghost balloon! Ask your teacher for information!

Here’s the flyer: Halloween Parade flyer

Thanks everyone! Follow our Twitter and Facebook for more information as the day gets closer, and keep an eye on this website too!

2018-19 T-Shirts and Hoodies are Live!

Welcome back, Orchestra Family!

We are happy to announce that the order forms for the 2018-19 shirts and hoodies are now available! Teachers will be passing out paper forms in class in the upcoming weeks, and the online shop at http://shop.orchestraboosters.com is live and ready to take orders. We are so excited to get back into the school year–many exciting things are in the works!

Orders are DUE SEPTEMBER 22. Products will be distributed the week of OCTOBER 22–that’s before the Halloween parade! All the designs of the shirts and hoodies are the same this year, instead of different colors for different schools, like last year–we are all one big family, after all! If you need another paper form, you can find it at the bottom of this post–feel free to print a new one and bring it in to the teachers. If you have any questions regarding the orders, email Eva Duncan at dunc_wex@sbcglobal.net. For issues with the website, please reach out to Abbie Schaefer at abbie.schaefer12@gmail.com. We are happy to help!
