NEW AUDITORIUM



A news update went out last week regarding the new auditorium for NCHS. There was a meeting last Thursday, October 29th, with the Facilities & Technology Citizens Oversight Committee. This Committee is authorized to specifically provide oversight for any Special Purpose Local Option Sales Tax (SPLOST) project.

It was originally decided that NCHS was due to get a new 750 seat auditorium as ours is outdated and unable to meet our current needs. It currently has 390 seats and only accommodates approximately 12% of our student population, which is why we often have to hold more than one session in order to accommodate everyone.

The vote that was being held on Thursday evening was whether or not we would be able to increase the number of seats from 750 to 1100.

Unfortunately the vote did not go in our favor with a total of 6 to 1 against, but the 750 seat auditorium is still very much in our future and we are very excited for that. Exact time frame for construction has not been determined but we will keep you informed as we learn more.



DONATIONS OF WATER AND BLACK SOCKS
We are not asking for any particular section to donate water at this time. Anyone who would like to is more than welcome to. We are requesting the following;
  • 16.9 FL oz. bottles
  • A flat of 24 count or greater
  • Any brand of bottled water


It is normal for at least one or two of the students to forget to wear or bring black socks each performance. We try to keep an emergency supply on hand for these time but, we are currently running a little low. We are asking for donations of tall black socks. Please no ankle socks.

Thank you for supporting the North Cobb High School Marching Band!
