Notes from the Music Hall – September 29, 2017

Sorry for the delay in posting this — most people will have also received this update via Charms.  –df (webmaster)


The High School Orchestra/Vocal Fall Concert is on Thursday, October 19. All members of the Orchestra will need to have their formal wear (dress or tux shirt, cummerbund and bow tie) for the concert. All Concert Band members will need their formal wear by the December 12th holiday concert.

The formal wear has been ordered and should arrive within the next week. If payment has been received, the formal wear will be distributed. A copy of the order form is attached. REMINDER: even if you are not ordering any Band/Orchestra Accessories, ALL STUDENTS MUST PAY CLEANING FEES. If this will cause a problem, please contact Mary Lynn Jackowicz, NOBOB President, at 216-586-7399 or 440-570-3601 or  Note that cleaning fees may also be paid online.


The coupon book orders are being filled. We will have a coupon book order pick-up on Wednesday, October 11. The books can be picked up in the Music Hall that evening. Approximately 60 order envelopes and sample coupon books have not been returned. If your student has not returned the order form and sample coupon book, they need to do so promptly. If the books are not returned, you will be responsible for the cost ($25).


Sorry for the delay in getting tickets out. Tickets for the Two Bucks fundraiser will be distributed next week. Tickets are $20 in advance or $25 at the door. 

For every ticket sold, the student will receive $5 in their student account. Student accounts can be used to pay accessories fees, trip costs or membership. If you need more tickets, please let us know.

We still need raffle items and volunteers to make this event a success. If you are providing a raffle basket, please respond to this email and provide a description

Please deliver raffle items, ticket money in the Music Hall on Wednesday, October 11. Someone will be available starting at 5:00 p.m. (NOTE: this is also the coupon book pick-up day.)


Once again, we will be having COIN WARS. The various sections will be competing against each other. We do combine sections so that all are relatively equal. The pails will be out during Wednesday Rehearsals. The winner will be announced at the Sounds of the Season concert, Sunday, October 29. The money raised will be used for a new Band banner.


As usual, we need bottled water. Besides for the during the football games, we need water for the Kickin’ it with Kenny (October 6) and the Columbus Day Parade (October 9).

For the football games and these other events, we need the 10 ounce bottles of water. Bottled water can be dropped off any Wednesday in the Music Hall or when you are dropping off your student any Friday evening.


If you want to submit your Senior’s baby pictures in the yearbook, you must submit them by Friday, October 6. Cost is $25.00

No matter how you submit the photo, you must complete the submission form and give the payment to the main office. On the envelope, please make sure you write “Baby Photo/Yearbook.”

You can submit photos in ONE of the following ways:

a. Email the picture as a jpeg attachment to the yearbook staff at
b. Turn the photo into the main office. Photos will be returned to the students later in the year.
c. Submit through

If you have questions about uploading photos, please see Mrs. Cheryl Huffer or email her at


Like many other classes and sport activities, the Band and Orchestra are now using “REMIND” to send out information. REMIND is real-time messaging. Your students have been told about signing up for REMIND for either Band and/or Orchestra. Parents should join REMIND so that you too can be kept in the loop.

In order to use REMIND, send the following text message, without the quotation marks, to 81010: “@nohse” (BAND REMIND) or “@nohsor” (ORCHESTRA REMIND).


We will be distributing Halloween Candy to the Band members after the last mandatory rehearsal of the Band (October 25). For this distribution, we need donations of bags of candy. Candy can be dropped off that Wednesday (before 7:00 p.m.). Since we do have a couple of students who have peanut allergies, please do not send candy with nuts.

Thanks to everyone for your continued support . . . . we couldn’t do it without you!
