Band News, Reminders
Hi Sophomore Band Families,
On Wednesday, November 5, we will be celebrating the end of a fabulous marching band season with the Marching Band Concert at 7PM. Refreshments will be served to all in attendance immediately following the concert in Cafeteria I.
We are asking all Sophomore Band Families to bring a store bought dessert with NO peanuts to this event. Please, do NOT send home baked desserts.
Please send your store bought dessert with your band student and have them drop it off in Cafeteria 1 before they go to practice. Please put your last name on the dessert. No dessert should be dropped off in the band room. Someone will be in Cafeteria 1 to take the dessert.
If you have any questions, please contact me at 440-864-6543.
Thank you for your support and enjoy the Marching Band Concert!
Dear Band Boosters and Band Members (please share with your kids):
We are in the final week of our car raffle fundraiser. For those of you who have returned or sold your tickets, Thank You! Every sold ticket gives ten more dollars to support our band program. Special thanks to those families who made the extra effort to sell extra tickets. Well done!
We still have the rest of this week to sell tickets and raise more money for the NRHS Band. Please do your best to contact friends and family in these final days to offer a chance to win a new car for $20.00. Our goal is to raise as much money as we can in this last week. If you find an interested party but have already turned in your tickets, call me and I can get a ticket to you.
Please remember that all tickets, sold or unsold, must be returned by this Friday, October 31! If you return your sold tickets to the white box by Friday before the game, you can find your hand-warmers outside the band room on Saturday morning, just in time for the 40 degree weather in Columbus!
Thanks again for your attention and support of NRHS Band Boosters.
Thanks for your hard work, Kids and Good Luck at States!
Tomorrow evening, Monday, October 27 at 7:00 pm in the NRHS Community Room is our next Band Booster meeting.
Please join us! It is a great opportunity to get involved!

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!
