If you are a freshman parent or new to our band parent, the Band Boosters would like to welcome you to the 2016-17 Marching season. Please stop into the Media Center on August 10th at 6:15pm (right after you have dropped off your bando for the mandatory painting session) and meet the Exec board, many chairpersons and participate in a Q&A session. Not sure where the media center is located? Please park in the parking lot near the Performing Arts Center.

Picture Day -- Photo Buttons:
On picture day, Friday, August 12, each student will have their picture taken by the Band Booster parents. These pictures will be taken after the group pictures and Mr. Vitale will instruct the kids where to line up for these pictures. These pictures will be used to make photo buttons with all proceeds from buttons sale going to the Band Boosters. Students can also get pictures taken with their friends and siblings if desired. This is a big fundraiser for the band and we ask that you support the band by purchasing these buttons. Orders for buttons will be taken at Preview Night on August 22nd. The buttons will be ready for pick up at the home football game on SEPTEMBER 2nd. Thank you for your support of the NRHS Marching Band!

Easter Seals Fundraiser – Help Us Fill The Truck
As our Easter Seals event draws closer, we are working harder than ever to spread the word about this event. If you happen to visit, or know someone that is involved with a garage sale, rummage sale, street sale, moving sale, flea market or yard sale, kindly let the seller know that after their sale, they can donate their unsold SOFT GOOD items to our Easter Seals event (NR Home Days) on Sat/Sun August 20-21 next to the board office. We also have a location to drop off items ahead of time if this time is inconvenient!
Finally, follow this link to volunteer your time! It is an easy and extremely helpful way to show your support!

The largest Band Booster fundraiser of the year is coming up fast – The Cleveland National Air Show September 3-5th.
The North Royalton Band Boosters have provided manpower to the air show for many years and we are given preferential treatment by the organizers due to the large number of hard working and enthusiastic volunteers we offer. When fully staffed, this event earns the Band up to $10,000!
In order to fully staff the air show and maximize our fundraising opportunity, we need to supply 80 volunteers each day of the air show. We will sell and collect tickets at the Plaza booth and at Gate 13, where we will also managing the parking. For those of you who have not worked the air show before, this is a great way to get to know your fellow band parents and have a fun time meeting people. Volunteering at the Air Show is usually a family event so moms, dads, and siblings are all welcome along with our “Bandos.” Children must be 15 years of age to participate.
To sign up for your slots, we have set up a form at www.signupgenius.com. All you need to do is select your day, indicate the number of volunteers in your group and provide a phone number and email address.
Here is the link to our signup form.
Note: Monday is usually the hardest day to fill so if you are available Monday, please select that day. Thank you to all the band parents who have already indicated you are planning on volunteering and to those who have yet to volunteer, please consider participating in this event.
