Attention Oak Hills families, alumni, and friends!
The 2015 "Comedy Caravan" will arrive at Oak Hills High School on Saturday September 26 at 8:00pm! You don’t want to miss it! It’s sure to be an evening of stress-relieving humor we can all use! Three professional comedians will be joined onstage by Oak Hills’ own Principal John Stoddard and teacher Steve Groh. Mr. Stoddard and Mr. Groh were selected by Oak Hills students through a week of online voting. The Underground Comedy College is assisting Mr. Stoddard and Mr. Groh in developing their material and comic skills for the show.
The show benefits the Ione Holt Auditorium Renovation Campaign, or iHARC, to defray costs of renovating the half-century old auditorium at Oak Hills. Treat yourself and your family to a great night of fun and help iHARC laugh all the way to the bank! Share the gift of laughter with family and friends and invite them to attend with you and make a night of it on September 26 at 8:00 pm. Tickets to the Comedy Caravan are only $16.52, including a service fee. Purchase your tickets now at www.oakhillsauditorium.com. Click the scrolling banner to be taken to the web page for the show and ticket purchase. All tickets are for reserved seats and we hope it's a sellout! On the website you can learn more about iHARC, view the latest architectural renderings, and check out other ways you can help raise funds for the renovations.
Help us pack the house! We look forward to seeing you there!
News / Announcements
On Sunday April 12, the Oak Hills Kiwanis Club is having its annual eat-all-you-want pancake breakfast in the Commons of Oak Hills High School. The breakfast is from 8am to 12 noon. This year’s breakfast benefits the Ione Holt Auditorium Renovation Campaign. We are asking ALL of the Oak Hills Band Association, band members, and their family and friends to support the campaign.
Before paying at the door, inside The Commons, obtain a red ticket from an iHARC volunteer. The red ticket identifies you as a supporter of iHARC. Inside, give your red ticket to the cashier. Your breakfast will be only $6.00 for an individual or $20 for a family up to four people. Proceeds of all red ticket sales go to iHARC!
We hope all Band Association members, all band members, their families and friends attend on Sunday April 12, between 8am and 12 noon. Attend before church or attend after church. Enjoy a delicious all-you-can-eat breakfast and support a great cause, the Ione Holt Auditorium Renovation Campaign!
PS - The iHARC committee needs a few volunteers to stand in front of the Commons, greet people as they enter and hand out RED tickets. As mentioned above, the RED tickets tell the Kiwanis that the proceeds from that person go towards iHARC. You will only be asked to work a one hour shift beginning at 8am and ending at noon. The more, the merrier! Hopefully, ALL the Band Association members, band students, their parents and families will be attending the breakfast anyway, right? :)
If you can help, please email Alan March (email@example.com) with the one hour time slot you can work. Thank you!
The Oak Hills High Marching Band will be performing at the Great American Ballpark for the Cincinnati Reds game on Saturday, April 11. The game is at 1:10pm against the Saint Louis Cardinals.

Reporting time at OHHS for the band will be 10am and they should return at 5pm.
Mr. Welsh is purchasing tickets for the students from the OHHS Band Activity Fund, so there will be no cost to the students. Mr. Welsh has tickets available for individuals and families to purchase. They are $10 each and $2 from every ticket sale through Mr. Welsh will benefit the Oak Hills Auditorium Revitalization Campaign. The order form is attached below (RedsDayLettertoparents.pdf). Instructions for payment and how to submit your orders are on the form. The last day to purchase tickets through the school is Monday, April 6, the day of the Opening Day Parade.

We need snacks for the reception after the concert. Cookies, brownies, etc - anything else you can think of that would taste yummy!! You can drop off your snack at the tables on your way into the auditorium.
Thanks in advance!!
This Wednesday, October 22, 2014 at 7:00pm in the auditorium is the Fall Band Concert.
Please help us PACK the auditorium!!!
The band students work extremely hard preparing for all of their concerts and it's disappointing to them when there are so many empty seats for the show.
Everyone worked hard at filling the auditorium last year for the end of year concert. It made such a positive impact, not just for the students, but even for the parents to see the amazing support. I heard some students even make comments about how many were in attendance!
Please, help us pack every concert this year! Invite family, friends, neighbors, co-workers or anyone else you can think of. Give them a ride if you have to! Make an evening of it, go get a bite to eat then take in a wonderful event!
You can make such a dramatic impact just by being there!
Senior Recognition Night this year is October 17, 2014. Students will be given their musical note after practice on Tuesday, September 23rd to take home and decorate. Students need to bring their decorated notes back on October 17th for the ceremony.
**Please make sure the two holes in the note are not covered up. The holes are there so they can be placed on stands.
