I will post important items here for parents so you will always have a quick reference point to find the information you need.
Fundraiser 2017-- Due ANYTIME
see the link directly following for our direct donation fundraiser-- we need to raise about $10,000 to keep our current budget in place for next year and in lieu of door to door sales and all the associated work with traditional fundraisers, we have chosen to repeat last year's successful donation drive. Please give whatever you are able and help our boosters to keep funding our strings program. The link has information that details where the money goes, but also feel free to contact us and talk with our SOA treasurer at any time. Link follows immediately below.
T shirt Sales 2017-- Due November 1st
We are offering new Strings spiritwear this year- this is NOT a fundraiser, we are offering you the items at actual cost, and the point of this is give the students the option to wear their own activity based spirit wear on Spirit-wear-Fridays and to represent our orchestra in the community! We have new designs this year, and all shirts/hoodies are made of super soft material (hoodies are thick and have a fuzzy feel inside); the PJ pants are made of flannel and come in two colors this year. Please make sure to write out checks to "Proforma Albrecht" as you fill out your order forms. Please remember the white polo shirt is required concert attire for JH and SI students. This polo can only be ordered off our form- Link immediately follows below.
Christmas in Springboro!
This year, Mrs. Abrams' 6th grade orchestra will be performing on Saturday November 18 at 2:30 in the Entertainment Tent!
NEW THIS YEAR-- Mrs Balek will be running a booth that sells Sees Chocolates and plans to donate profits to the SOA. She will be selling boxed chocolates and other goodies- so consider buying some of your holiday gifts from the SOA booth! If you'd like to help work at this booth, please contact us on the Contact Page-- a signup genius email will be sent soon as well.
