Welcome back to school and to a new year! 2020 is going to be great and to start the semester off strong we have a tamale fundraiser going on from January 8 through January 17. They are $10/dozen and come in 6 different varieties. Students will receive an order form in class Thursday/Friday to bring home. Orders can be paid for by cash or check ***(made out to Grand Oaks High School Choir Booster Club)***
You can also make orders online by clicking this link —-> TAMALES ORDER SITE
Orders are due to Mr. Smith by Friday, January 17 with payment in hand. This ensures proper delivery on January 27. Please only sale to friends, family, church friends, and co-workers. Selling to strangers or people you barely know is not always a good idea.
All orders, whether placed online or from the student, will be delivered to the school on Monday, January 27 after school. Pick-up will be from 3:00 – 8:00 pm. This is also the same night of the school academic fair (2 for one deal that evening)
Reminder, there are ways you can support the choir with your every day purchases!
Fundraising while you Shop will benefit the choir program by going to AmazonSmile rather than Amazon, registering your Kroger card with their Community Rewards Program or purchasing gift cards online from ShopwithScrip. It’s Fundraising based on the shopping you do everyday! Additional details can be found here: Info
Parents and students, we have been asked to do concessions for the Thursday night game at MOORHEAD STADIUM next to Conroe High School. (11-14-19) We need 10-12 people to run everything.

***Must be able to provide transportation to and from the stadium in Conroe, NOT WOODFOREST***
We need everyone that wants to help to sign up by 6:00 pm TONIGHT so we can decide if this is going to happen. If we don’t have enough workers they’ll ask another group.

Welcome to the month of October. I, for one, am amazed it is already here. The last weeks have just flown by and before you know it, we will be at Thanksgiving break.
The fall concert was great! I am so proud of every choir and their hard work to learn the music so quickly. Most choir programs won’t have a fall concert until mid-October so going in September is pretty impressive!

This is a combined concert featuring choirs from Grand Oaks, York, Clark, and Cox.
