Sign-up for Orchestra Parent Text Message Reminders

HRHS Orchestra Families,

Orchestra parents/guardians are able to sign up to receive text message reminders of important upcoming events.  These text alerts are infrequent and often used in conjunction with only a subset of the Orchestra e-mails.  Participation is voluntary but potentially helpful if you check your e-mail infrequently or if the Orchestra informational e-mails are getting lost in a sea of spam.

If you want to receive these messages but do not want to get them via text message, an alternative is to receive these messages via the REMIND app, which you can download to your smartphone.  Your orchestra student should already be receiving similar messages as part of a separate classroom REMIND group set up by Mr. Woodworth.

To receive these periodic messages, send a text message to number 81010 with @orchparen in the message field.

Again, enter this number:  81010
Text this message:  @orchparen

Participation is optional and you can leave the group at any time if you no longer wish to receive these messages.

HRHS Orchestra Banquet - Thursday May 4th

HRHS Orchestra Families,

Our End-of-Year Orchestra Banquet will be on Thursday, May 4th, in the HRHS auditorium.  The Orchestra Boosters will be providing the main dish and drinks, but are asking the families to bring sides and desserts to share in a pot luck fashion.  Please arrive in the 6:30-6:45 PM timeframe so you have time to drop off your side/dessert in the Orchestra Room before joining us in the main auditorium.

Please RSVP no later than April 28th at this link:  Orchestra Banquet E-vite Invitation

Once you've clicked on the link, View the Message From The Host, go to RSVP, and add a message in your RSVP reply stating whether you will be bringing a Side Dish or Dessert.
