Orchestra fees are due next week on Thursday, October 15th. Click on this link to the orchestra webpage to access a digital copy of the fees paperwork (it's at the top). www.khsorchestras.org


It is also on Canvas, and in-person students received a paper copy.


The packet also has information on how to order a yard sign or car decal.

Final T Shirt Design-- thank you to the student officers for an awesome design!

Parent Shirts or extra shirts for students are $10-- email me by Friday Oct 9th to order

Students will all receive the above Orchestra T shirt as part of their orchestra fees-- we'll be wearing it at our concert in December.


If parents want to order a shirt for themselves or an extra one for their student, please email me directly by Friday, October 9th. ellenmlawrence@katyisd.org Additional shirts are $10, cash or check to KHOBA. Bella Canvas soft cotton shirts, run a little bit small, adult sizes small to 4X.

Region Orchestra recordings

We have nine students auditioning for region orchestra this year. Region orchestra recordings have to be done between October 10th and October 14th. Please don't wait for the 14th-- it's a weird schedule day with PSAT at school.


You can record it at home, or you can have Ms. Lawrence help you record it at school. Email to set up a time ellenmlawrence@katyisd.org

Paint an Orchestra Paw next week! Tuesday, Wednesday, or Friday this week!

I added Friday as an option to paint paws. You can do Tuesday, Wednesday, or Friday this week, 2:35 to 4 pm. KHOBA provides all the painting supplies-- just bring yourself!



Sign up here:

Every KHS orchestra student gets to paint their paw on the sidewalk outside the orchestra room. Please sign up for one day so we can be socially distant. We will wear masks while we paint. This is optional. If you have sports practice after school and can't make any of these days, let me know and we'll find another time.

Orchestra Remind Codes

I always send out this red KHS Orchestra News by Remind because the students are more likely to see it on a text rather than an email. Parents can sign up for this, too! Optional for parents.



Sign up for Remind:


For 4th period Varsity: text @orchkhs to the number 81010


For 2nd, 3rd, and 5th period Non Varsity classes: text @khsorchnv to the number 81010

Calendar-- this is also available on Canvas under Week 7 module
