Contest Hoodies and Pins to be delivered to students 10/1/14 after practice

Dear Band Parents,

If you purchased a band contest hoodie and/or pin, we will be delivering them to the students tomorrow evening (10/1/14) after 6-9 practice. All hoodies and/or pins are in bags or envelopes with the students’ names on them.

If you ordered a pin and do not receive it tomorrow night, please do not worry. We had to place a second order with the pin company and we are expecting it any day. When the pins arrive we will get the pins to your students as soon as possible.

If you have any questions, you may call or email me at 717-1532 or saberish@hotmail.com

Thank you,

Booster Meeting on Monday and Membership

Hi Everyone,

Band Booster Meeting

Our next Band Booster Meeting is this Monday, September 29 at 7:00 P.M. in the NRHS Community Room located in the front of the high school. We look forward to seeing you there!

Membership

Although becoming a Band Booster Member is always welcome at any time during the year, we are nearing the end of our Membership drive. Currently, our numbers are about 10% lower than last year. Perhaps this is because of our website transition, or simply because it has slipped your mind. Realizing that this organization directly benefits our kids and enhances their experience in the high school band program, we strongly feel it is important that all parents support the band boosters. Please consider becoming a member. To do so, complete the membership form, fill it out and have your student place it in the white box in the band room. (Please mark your envelope “Band Booster Membership.”) Another option would be to attend our booster meeting on Monday, September 29. Spirit wear and membership will be displayed and available to all interested.

Spirit Wear Sale

At the Booster meeting select spirit wear from our inventory will be on sale. Please note most sale merchandise is black-colored and sizes are limited. If you have any questions, please contact Shirley at saberish@hotmail.com.

Thank goodness for a relatively calm week for everyone! See you Friday at the game!

Band Booster President

Thanks for a Great Band Fest and More

Hi Everyone!

What a great night for a Festival of Bands! We couldn't have had a better evening for this event! Hosting in September seems to really be a good thing...September historically is a beautiful and relatively dry month...but we do live in the unpredictable northeast Ohio area! Thank goodness we dodged a rainy bullet last night! That truly could make or break an event like this!

Thanks for all the hard work of all our volunteers! Especially Rich and Monica Hrin, and Chris and Beth Burdick for organizing this event! It is turning out to be a great fundraiser for us! This was our 3rd year for this event and there were many compliments and thank you's for hosting this festival. Concessions and ticket sales worked particularly hard feeding the crowd and bands and selling tickets to nearly 1400 people as well as selling programs! 50/50 deserves a big shout out for not only selling tickets but helping with crowd control and any seating concerns. We had several ushers navigating the guests to their seats to avoid congestion and the Pit Crew parked all the buses in the high school staff lot! A great effort was made by all! It looks like this event is becoming quite popular and we will definitely need more help next year!

Although I did not get to see any bands, except our own, the comments I heard were that it was a very entertaining show! Mr. Vitale's talents and efforts once again proved to be exceptional last night! What a complicated and amazing show and our kids performed their hearts out! It gives me goose bumps to see 280 kids working together to sell this performance to the audience. I can't wait to see what it looks like when they perform at State Competition!

Looking forward...next week is Homecoming and our first contest is October 4th at Perkins High School in Sandusky. Purchase your spirit wear and booster membership apparel so that we can show our support in the stands if you haven't done so already! Membership and spirit wear will be available at our next booster meeting, Sept. 29. You can also download a form from our website, northroyaltonbandboosters.com, and have your student put it in the white band box (mark your envelope ‘Booster Membership’). Additionally, we have only 5 "bling" items left. Get yours before they are sold out! Please contact Shirley at saberish@hotmail.com or 440-717-1532 with any questions regarding spirit wear or membership. 

Thanks again for all the hard work of our parent volunteers! Your efforts DID NOT go unnoticed! We truly are fortunate to be a part of such a great organization!

Band Booster Newsletter Week 4

Hi Parents,

Welcome to week #4 of Marching Band Season! This week proves to be a busy one with the Fruit Sale blitz winding down, the car raffle ticket sale beginning on Wednesday, a home game on Friday and our Booster Hosted Band Festival on Saturday. Please check the director’s page for details about our upcoming performances.

Fruit Sale

Although the Blitz was this past weekend, the fruit sale continues until October 17. Please continue to offer fruit to relatives, people at work, or neighbors that may have been missed during the blitz. This is a very profitable fund raiser for our kids and band program.

Car Raffle

Each year band students are asked to sell car raffle tickets. Half of the ticket price goes to our Band and the other half goes to the Stadium Foundation. The grand prize is a car from Serpentini Chevrolet. Band students will get their tickets on Wednesday after band in Cafe 2.

Buttons

Buttons will be available for pick up at the main entrance (north entrance) from 6:30 until halftime at this Friday's home game. If anyone is interested in ordering buttons, please contact Nancy Chester at n.chester@sbcglobal.net.

Uniforms for Band Festival

Be aware that students are expected to wear contest pants for Saturday's performance. Please try them on before Saturday to make sure they don’t need to be fixed, hemmed, etc. Also, be sure to check Mr. Vitale's page for specific details on contest attire.

We look forward to seeing you at the game on Friday! And bring your family and friends to the Band Festival on Saturday and our first view of Celebration of The Seasons contest show! Just remember to wear your band spirit wear!
