Booster News - Holiday Concert, Uniform Turn In, Pies And More

Hi Everyone,

It is amazing that we have already closed this incredible 2015 Marching Band Season. This season will always have fond memories for my family and me since it was the only year both of my children performed together on the football field. I know I am not alone. There were so many lifelong memories made both on and off the field this season for all of us. This activity offers so many opportunities! I would like to thank the Royalettes and Royalaires for the signature role you played in the 2015 season. We look forward to seeing you at the holiday parade and again in the spring for our Florida trip and Memorial Day parade.

Holiday Concert

The next performance experience takes place December 13 and 14. Tickets are on sale. Visit the director’s website and order your tickets now! These shows sell out fast! If you receive complimentary tickets because of joining boosters, don't forget, you still need to fill out an order form indicating which concert(s) you plan to attend.

Marching Band Uniform Turn In Dates

Booster Meeting

Our next Booster Meeting is Monday, Nov. 16, in the Media Center at 7:00 pm. This is our last meeting until Jan. - come join us!

Five Guys and Holiday Pies

Five Guys was a huge success! We brought in $420 just by feeding our family. Our next food experience is the Bakers Square holiday pie sale. Pie gift cards are $14 each. Get your pies for Thanksgiving and the holiday season through this fundraiser and help our band program at the same time! Pie gift cards do not expire until the year 2064 so you can buy now for the whole year and beyond. Order forms are in the band room but you can also print one from our website.

It won't be long before we are all together again for the holiday concert. Warmest wishes to our band family for a wonderful Thanksgiving.

Bakery for Marching Band Concert

Dear Sophomore Band Families:

Just a friendly reminder. We are asking all Sophomore Band Families to bring store bought desserts with NO peanuts to the Marching Band Concert on November 4th. After the concert we are hoping all the band members and their families will enjoy bakery and beverages, but CURRENTLY LESS THAN HALF THE SOPHOMORE BAND FAMILIES HAVE SIGNED UP TO DONATE and there will not be enough bakery for everyone to enjoy!

Please sign up for a specific dessert here.

Please send your dessert with your band student and have them drop it off on November 4th in Cafeteria I (next to PAC) before they go to practice. Please put your last name on the dessert. NO dessert should be dropped off in the band room. Someone will be in Cafeteria I to take the dessert.

If you have any questions please contact Helen Kelly at or (440) 746-9048.
