Our bandos AND their uniforms have taken a beating from the weather recently. Please remember the football pants and raincoats can be washed on gentle and cold, and air dried. It would be a good week to have the jacket and contest pants dry cleaned so the pants look sharp for states. Sorry, but this would be at your expense. At the very least, spot clean the pants. If there is mud on them wait til it dries and then brush with stiff brush. Use a damp cloth to remove any remaining residue as well as nacho cheese, etc. Also, take a damp cloth to the hats and clean and polish shoes. Thanks for taking care of the uniforms!!

Hi Band Families,
Congratulations to the students on a job well this past weekend! In an effort to keep everyone dry as long as possible, the students wore their raincoats as long as possible. The raincoat retrieval process after our performance was a little difficult. We would like students to check the pockets of the raincoat currently in their possession because some students are missing personal belongings. Please bring these items to rehearsal on Monday. Additionally please check the name and number of the raincoat in your possession because we need to return the raincoats to the students to whom they are assigned. While we can wait until Friday to reshuffle the coats back to their original owners, we want to make sure that all student belongings are returned as soon as possible - so please check the pockets for items. We appreciate your help with this process – and congratulations again!
Hi Band Families,
It's hard to believe we are in our 8th Week of Football! This Friday is Senior Band Night. Halftime will be used to honor all the Senior Band Students and their parents. It is an honor that these students have dedicated 4 years to our band program! Their leadership helps carry on our traditions and defines who we are!
Please be sure to bring your store bought baked goods (Freshman) or water bottles/2 liter bottles of soda (Juniors) to Cafe 2 before rehearsal on Friday if you haven’t already turned them in. Remember, rehearsal starts promptly at 4 pm...this is an earlier start time due to Senior Band Night. Check Mr. Vitale’s website for the complete itinerary.
After the game, the North Royalton High School Marching Band will perform the entire contest show for us so stick around after the game and enjoy the show!
Saturday's Contest is in Copley. Please visit Mr. Vitale’s website to get the latest details regarding our last competition before States.
I would like you to know that the band is close to tying or beating some of their all-time record scores! These kids are doing an awesome job! I'm so proud to be a part of such an awesome organization! State contest here we come!
This is just a reminder that this is the last week to get all of your fruit orders in! All fruit orders (with payment) are due in to the white band box by this Friday, October 17th. ASAP would be great - you don't have to wait until the last day! We are getting close to reaching our goal! Why not do a little last-minute brainstorming and figure out who else would love to support the band while enjoying some fresh, delicious Florida fruit! Please remember, you can also order fruit to donate to the food pantry.
Thank you so much!
Hi Freshman Band Families,

Hi Band Families,
We need 4 more chaperones for Saturday. If you can help, please contact Susanna at email@example.com.
Dear Band Members and Band Boosters,
This is an early reminder that we only have until the end of October to sell our share of the Stadium Foundation Raffle Tickets.
I hope you have already been in touch with people about this great opportunity to win a brand new car. In case you would like to contact some folks via email, I have attached a form letter you can easily personalize to help get the word out. Please consider sending a note to family and friends this weekend and watch for their replies. Don't forget to put something that identifies you in the 'subject' field so they know it is safe to open the attachment. Or you can copy and paste the letter directly into the body of your email. (Paste without formatting.)
Kids, this is a great way to reach more people who want to support you! Just take a few minutes to edit the letter, make it more personal and send it out. It would be great to sell the winning ticket to someone you know!
Sell two tickets? You can do that.
If you have any questions or want more tickets, please email or call me.
440-759-9864 or firstname.lastname@example.org
The kids did a wonderful job during the Blitz Weekend for the FRUIT SALE. Thank you all for your hard work! Just as a reminder though, the FRUIT SALE is still continuing! Please keep asking friends, family members, neighbors, co-workers, etc. to support the marching band by purchasing some tasty, fresh, Florida fruit! You can encourage them to help us out by telling them that the fruit is picked, loaded on the truck and immediately driven up to us, so it's the freshest fruit they will probably have all season! Besides enjoying the yummy, juicy fruit, they will also get a warm feeling inside knowing they have helped the band out in a huge way! Please feel free to turn in any completed order forms at any time to the white box in the band room. Extra forms are available on the table next to the white box in the band room. All orders are due in by October 17th.

Thank you for supporting our great band program!
