Hello Band Families,

Please join us for our next Booster meeting this Monday at 7 pm in the NRHS Media Center. We will get you updated on all the Spring Band events, including OMEA State Contest, the Band Awards Banquet, Band-A-Rama, and our Annual Basket Raffle Fundraiser. You can even reserve your spot at the 3-Spot for this fun-filled evening that benefits our Band Program! There will be plenty of food and drink, sideboards, 50/50 raffle, and fantastic baskets filled with goodies of all kinds. It's always a fun evening out and a great way to support our Bands. We are also in need of a few volunteers to help that evening, so please consider donating your time as well. Click on the Sign Up Genius here to help and as always, thank you!

Band Families,

We are on the homestretch to the end of the school year and the Band Awards Banquet is fast approaching. Download the invitation and RSVP form. (The RSVP is the second page of the document.) RSVP’s are due back on May 1.

A check is needed to pay for everyone attending who is not a Senior Band Student. The cost is $11 per person. Seniors band members are free. Please put the RSVP and payment in an envelope and mark it, “Awards Banquet Night” and have your student drop it off in the white band box.

Even if you do not attend the dinner, everyone is welcome and encouraged to attend the Band Awards program which starts at 7:00pm. It is a great way to spend an enjoyable evening with family and friends.

OMEA State Contest Volunteers Needed

Band families,

Preparations are underway for the OMEA Northeast Region State Band Adjudicated Event - held right here at North Royalton High School. We are very excited that we are the only band program to have four concert bands participating at the state level for this region, and we are also excited that we are able to host this event right here at our own home school. (Schedules and itineraries can be found on the Band Website.)

However, there is a great deal of responsibility entrusted to us for hosting this event. We have each of the students volunteering to help with volunteer shifts, but there are certain shifts that can only be held by adults.

We are asking for a few more adult volunteers to please help us out the weekend of April 28 and 29. We have minimized the number of adult shifts required based on absolute need.

If you can volunteer even a few hours - it would be greatly appreciated - and the jobs are not difficult. Jobs range from making sure doors remained closed during a performance, to making sure the sightreading areas are closed to the public.

If you can volunteer just a few hours - please click the enclosed link to our page on Sign-Up-Genius – and anything you can contribute is appreciated. We would not be able to host this event without the support of the Band Boosters and volunteers like you!

-Mr. Vitale

Raffle Fundraiser Wine Pull

This year's basket raffle will have a wine pull and we need donations! Sign up here to donate a bottle of wine or champagne of your choice.

To participate in the wine pull the day of the event you will need to purchase a ticket and then pick a random bottle of wine! All wine bottles will be wrapped (wrapped to hide the bottle and value) from a selection of expensive, medium range, and cheap wines.

You can drop your donation off on my porch at 12740 Pinebrook Dr or I can come pick them up.
