Parent meeting wrap-up/reminders

Good afternoon- Here are some reminders from the parent meeting and other items throughout the week: 

If you missed filling out the parent volunteer form, please find one below and fill out/return by the end of the week.  Thanks! Also let us know about any talents or skills you have, whether career or hobby-related. You might be able to help us in a way we haven’t even thought of!  

Milton Orchestra Volunteer Opportunities

Trip information/deposits: As discussed at the meeting and in class, we will be taking a Spring Trip to Nashville, TN!  We depart at approximately 1:30 pm on Thursday, April 2nd and return around 7 pm April 4th. Highlights include an orchestra clinic at Vanderbilt University, touring Ryman Auditorium, the Country Music Hall of Fame, and the Parthenon.  To secure a spot, students should bring a $50 deposit (to Milton Orchestra Booster Club) no later than Friday, September 13.  

Spirit Wear: We will be placing an order for shirts at the end of next week.  Options include: 

  1. Last year’s “got rosin?” design on a blue (different than the picture) shirt this time.  $15
  2. The Milton High School Orchestra design on a baseball/raglan style shirt with either blue or red (red pictured) sleeves..  $25

Both shirts are unisex.  If you want to place an order, bring the correct amount of money specifying which shirt(s), size(s), and sleeve choice if applicable.  Checks made out to Milton Orchestra Booster Club. Due Friday, September 13.  

MUSICON: Students who signed up already or would still like to volunteer to help out with MUSICON at Northwestern on Friday, September 13, please choose a job at the link below.  There are generic spots, too, if you just want to say what times you are available without picking a job.

Dresses should have already been ordered!  We’ll let you know when the group order arrives.  Contact Mr. Cummings with questions.  

Tuxedo payments can be made at any time, and fittings will be done over the next few weeks with the help of volunteers during class time.  The fee is $25 for the year, made out to Milton Orchestra Booster Club.  

General annual orchestra fees of $90 were due at the end of August, payable online through OSP.  Contact Mr. Cummings with any questions.
