Dear Band Families -
We got quite a few more volunteers this week, so thank you to those who signed up. If you haven't signed up (or want to sign up for a second day!) we still need people on Sunday (need 15) and Monday (need 27) to meet our required 85 per day. We are getting close, we just need a few more families and friends to help us. There is still time to sign up! Remember, the money raised goes directly to help defer the costs of band trips, so the more we raise the less they cost for everyone. If you or anyone you know 14 or over can help please have them sign up via Signup Genius here:
For those of you who have already signed up if you did not get your parking passes, tickets, and instructions at Parent Preview Night we will have a table set up at the game near the entrance by the concession stand at the game on Friday. All tickets (Gate 6 only), parking passes, waivers, and instructions for your shift will be available under your name. If you will not be there you will need to make arrangements with me or Kathy Payne to get your tickets before your shift.

Bring a chair and watch the show! THIS IS ONE OF OUR LARGEST FUNDRAISERS! WE CAN RAISE NEARLY $10,000 FOR OUR BAND! The money we raise at the Air Show goes DIRECTLY to help pay for band trips (e.g. DISNEY). So if we are going to keep these trips affordable we need your help.

Hello Band Parents!
Don't forget there is a Band Booster Parent meeting this Thursday, August 16th at 7 pm in the High School Media Center.
We look forward to seeing you there and seeing some new faces as well. Please come with any questions you may have.
Also, don't forget Parent Preview Night and our Ice Cream Social is this Friday, August 17th at the NR Football Stadium. You can arrive as early as 6 pm for ice cream and the Band Performance starts at 7 pm. Ice cream will be set up by the home concessions stand at the stadium. First, come pick up your tickets by using the student's last name that was written on the order form. You will receive tickets for all of the cups of ice cream that you ordered, so each family member can turn in a ticket when that person is ready to eat. Band students can get their tickets from a family member when they are done performing.
The ice cream social will shut down around 6:50 and reopen after the preview so that our volunteers can enjoy the show.
Thank you for supporting the band by enjoying some delicious ice cream!
Have a great week!

Dear Band Families,
Thank you to the many new and veteran band parents who have signed up to help at the Cleveland Air Show this year.
While many people have signed up, we still need to fill all of the slots available. We need at least 85 volunteers on each day to fill our quota. We are paid per volunteer, so the more volunteers we have the more money we raise for the band. As one of our biggest fundraisers all year, we need to make all we can over the weekend.
Again, if you have already signed up, THANK YOU. If you haven’t, we need your help. Especially on Sunday (9/2) and Monday (9/3) we have several slots to fill. The only requirement for volunteers is that they are at least 14 years old, so if you can grab a friend, neighbor, or relative why not do it together to make it more fun? Plus, you get in to the Air Show for free!
You can sign up at Parent Preview Night next Friday, or at Signup Genius here:
If you have any questions please contact me.

Hi Band Parents,
Tuesday is picture day and, in addition to the school sponsored pictures, the band boosters will once again be taking pictures for our world famous Photo Buttons! So make sure your band member knows they need to get their picture taken by both the school photographer and the booster photographers in order for you to have the chance show your pride by wearing their smiling face. To make the booster buttons even more special, we take individual shots and allow small group shots (up to 4 people) so siblings and friends can be in the same button. There is no cost for any of the boosters pictures to be taken.
Button orders can be placed at Parent Preview Night and the first home game so stop by our tables at each. The boosters’ Photo Buttons will be sold for the unbelievably low price of $5 each or 3 for $12. Button creation takes about a week but can take a little longer if volumes are high.
Please note the booster Photo Buttons are different and independent from buttons that might be part of the school-sponsored photo packages.
We are also still looking for volunteers to help at the football games to take orders and distribute the buttons. Please click on this link which will take you to our Sign Up Genius to volunteer.

Band Parents and Band Families,
The Band Staff and I have been having discussions these past few weeks as we look at the forecast for this Sunday’s Home Days Parade. With the heat we have been experiencing, we are making a decision to change the uniform for this Sunday. We are going to switch this Sunday’s uniform from Khaki Pants to Khaki Shorts. It is important all band students still own a pair of Khaki pants because they will still be utilized for the Band-a-Rama uniform, as well as the Parent Preview Night Uniform, however, we decided for this parade to make this change to khaki shorts. By making this change for this year, this will allow the band staff flexibility in future parade situations to utilize the either the "khaki pants" or "khaki shorts" option depending on temperature.
So for parents of freshmen, and those new, this means the Parade Uniform for Sunday is now:
- Purple Band Polo
- Knee length Khaki Shorts - (NOT cargo shorts, not corduroy)
- Black Belt
- Black Ankle Socks
- Black Band Shoes
It is our hopes that Khaki shorts are something that might already be present in a student’s wardrobe, and for those that don’t have a pair, we are hoping this is enough notice to find/get/borrow/purchase a pair for Sunday. We apologize for the short notice, but the forecast for Sunday is what prompted us to look at possibly adding Khaki shorts to part of our Band Uniform attire. We also hope that for underclassmen, by adding this component to their uniform wardrobe now, it can be an investment that can be utilized for future parades as well.
We appreciate everyone’s understanding and cooperation, and we look forward to seeing everyone at the parade on Sunday!
