Keep listening to the morning announcements, as the activities of the school year are in full swing!
It may seem early, but many clubs and organizations have begun fundraising for trips later in the year. The GRB Chorus and Symphonic and Concert Orchestras are heading to Boston this spring and are putting together numerous fundraisers to support their visit.
The items they are selling are quite useful and oftentimes delicious. Members are selling Music Money Cards, which are a sort of reusable coupon that gives you discounts to several restaurants and other forms of entertainment in the area. If you are a frequenter of any of these establishments, a card could save you a lot of money.
Additionally, the members are selling candy bars throughout the school day and have just begun taking orders for frozen pies. If you know anyone in either of these organizations, make sure to treat yourself to either of these to help support the cause.
The first National Honor Society meeting for current members went well, and the chapter is hoping to give back to the community more than ever this year.
Members now have to complete eight in-school community service hours, which will be mainly through tutoring, and four outside-of-school hours each semester. The second meeting will take place Oct. 21 after school.
The end of fall sports is also the last time some of our seniors will play on the home turf.
The boys’ soccer senior night was last Tuesday, and it was an extremely exciting matchup. The boys played Marcellus and won 1-0, with Derek Prosser scoring the loan goal. The win was definitely bittersweet, as the underclassmen said goodbye to 11 extremely talented and dedicated team members.
Another senior night takes place tomorrow for girl’s soccer. The girls take on Homer, with JV playing at 4:30 and varsity starting at 5. The night will consist of a tribute to the team’s six beloved leaders and exciting play. Please come support.
Speaking of seniors, don’t forget to submit by Nov. 5 the prom and baby pictures you would like to see in the yearbook. Additionally, if you will be using your own headshot instead of the one taken by the school, then those pictures need to be in by the same date. All pictures can be turned in to Mr. Senecal.
Nov. 5 is a date to mark on your calendars not only because of the photos are due, but because it is the date of the first GRB orchestra concert. Nov. 6 is the date of the first GRB band concert.
The November concert is always a nice prelude to what the groups will play for the rest of the year. I know both groups have been working hard on their pieces. Be sure to come and listen to our very own musicians!
