Happy New Year News!

Dear Band Families,

Merry Christmas and Happy New Year 2018 to all our Band Families!

It is hard to believe that 2017 is coming to end so quickly… What a fantastic year it was for our Band Program! Looking forward to the start of 2018 and all the events coming up until the end of the school year….

Now that you have had a chance to catch your breath, I would like to list a few of the events coming up in 2018…. As always, we need YOUR help to make these events a success!!!

First, we will be sponsoring Rhythm and Raffle on February 24th at North Royalton High School Cafeteria 1 (right by the PAC). This is a FAMILY event with dinner, basket raffles and performances by Middle School, High School and Baldwin Wallace jazz bands, combos, and ensembles….. It will be a great night of music!

But to host this event, we need help on our planning committees…. Please consider joining one of our committees…. Follow the SignUpGenius Link to read the committee descriptions and volunteer to help us plan the FUNDRAISING event for the Band Programs!

Second, in the near future, there will be a link available for volunteering to chaperone our band members to the Concert Contests. Stay tuned for more information….

Third, our school will host the STATE contest. We will need almost 100 parents to help us run the two-day event! Details will be coming out in March regarding the event!

Finally, we will be needing help with the Band Award Banquet in May…. Again more details to follow…

Please keep these events in mind as we wind down the Band Program season….

As always, thank you for your help and enjoy the rest of your time off. Happy 2018!

Fruit Sale Pick Up and Delivery Process

Good Evening Parents!

We wanted to take a moment to explain the Fruit Sale Pick up and delivery process to eliminate any confusion.

First of all, thank you so much for participating in the sale and helping the band boosters with one of its biggest yearly fundraisers. Your help and volunteering is part of what makes our band so amazing. We cannot thank you enough.

If you or your student sold any fruit either in the Blitz, Personal sale or both, you and your band student are responsible for picking up the fruit from your orders that you turned in. You and your student are also responsible for delivering the fruit to your customers that ordered from you.

You can pick up your orders from the Annex on the following days:

  • Friday, December 8th from 6-8pm ( this pick up is for large orders of 20 items or more only please)
  • Saturday, December 9th from 9 am - 1 pm (Main pick up day!)
  • Tuesday, December 12th from 6-8pm (LAST CHANCE to pick up!)

When you arrive to pick up your order, park either in the District parking lot or the long parking lot to the west of the District Building. The Annex is located between the District Building and the stadium North Entrance. Come to the Annex and give us your student’s name. We will give you back your order forms and fill your order. We will have students and volunteers available to help bring items to your car if needed. Due to the perishable nature of the cheesecakes and fruit, we kindly request that you deliver the orders to your customers as soon as possible.

If for some reason you can not make any of the above pick up dates, please make alternate arrangements with Jaimie Poplin ( 1-228-217-8084 call or text).

The above dates are the ONLY dates that you will be able to pick up your orders. (Unless you’ve called to make other arrangements with us.) Due to the perishable nature of the products, limited time frame availability of the Annex, limited time frame for the freezers being used, limited availability of volunteers and holiday break schedules, we, unfortunately, cannot store orders longer than the dates listed above. Any orders not picked up will be donated to charity. We cannot stress enough the importance of coming to pick up your orders on time!

If you know of any band family or friends who do not check their email or Facebook regularly, please pass this information on to them as well. Thank you again so much for all of your help and support during this year’s fruit sale! We are so lucky to have all of you as part of our band family.
