Adopt a Rocket Food Drive

We are collecting food for our Adopt a Rocket Food Drive.  This drive will allow less fortunate families to have a Thanksgiving meal and I want the Orchestra to go big!  We are asking that each section member purchase the following items in what ever quantity you deem acceptable over the weekend and bring these items to school on Monday.  Let’s show the school what we can do and make a difference for these families!

Violin 1 -Stuffing, green beans, corn

Violin 2 – canned yams, marshmallows, potatoes (instant)

Viola – cornbread, gravy

Cello/bass – cranberry sauce, dessert (boxed brownies, etc)

Symphony students will come to the hall by the band director offices in the Fine Arts wing 3rd period to eat and change (we are providing pizza and water). Symphony students will get instruments around 11:45 and go to the stage for warm-up.

Philharmonic students will exit the orchestra room following sight-reading and go to the hall by the bathrooms in the Fine Arts wing to change and wait to go to class. DO NOT eat pizza or ask to eat pizza. Philharmonic students will return to a normal school schedule following 3rd period.

We need as many students as possible 7th period to come help clean up!
