Cleveland Airshow - We need your help

Dear Band Families,

Thank you to the many new band parents that signup up last night to volunteer at the Cleveland Air Show this year.

We are well on our way to filling our quota of volunteers, but we are not there yet – especially for Monday. We need a total of 85 people each of the three days at the airshow to fill our quota. We are paid per volunteer, so the more volunteers we have the more we can raise for the band. For those of you who are not aware, this is a marching band trip year where almost 300 Bandos spend a week at Disney and march in the parade there. It is an awesome experience.

The money raised at the air show is earmarked to offset the cost of the trip.

If your son or daughter is planning on participating in the Disney trip this year, volunteering a few hours of your time would be much-appreciated contribution toward this great experience.

You can sign up online here.

Thank You,

Gary Diehl Air Show Committee Chairman

New Parent Meeting!

August 9 at 6:15pm in the HS Media Center

Come and meet the Booster Exec board and many of our dedicated chairpersons at this meeting! If you are new to our band program, this is your chance to hear about the booster organization and what our role is in supporting this fantastic band program. Looking forward to meeting everyone!

Needed: Assistant Chairpersons for Various Committees

We are in need of a few parents to help out our committees. It is a lot of fun to work on these committees. You will meet wonderful parents and every minute of your time directly benefits our band program

To volunteer for a position: CONTACT AMANDA KOST: 4408646543 or memandy@ameritech.net. THANKS!

Here is what we need:

VISITING BANDS – need a parent to contact the directors of visiting bands to check on the size of their band. We have a form email for you to send to the directors. We need the information because we supply water and snacks to our visiting bands. There are only 5 home games.

PHOTO BUTTONS – need a parent to help the chairperson with Picture Day, process the pictures, help make the buttons and distribute at home games. It is a lot of fun… especially making the buttons!

50/50 RAFFLE – need a parent to assist our chairperson the nights of the home games. You would help check in our volunteers, distribute tickets to our volunteers to sell, collect money, tear tickets and help close out the raffle. Involvement is from 6pm – halftime.

CHAPERONES – help chairperson to make sure all busses have chaperones. May require calling or emailing volunteers. Need to be able to chaperone the busses to away games and contests. It is a great way to meet the band and no worries about parking or driving to away events!

Band Front Registration Instructions 2017

Hello Band Front Families,

It is time to register for the 2017-2018 band season. Band Front Registration will be taking place on-line over the next few days. The deadline is June 12. All fees and information are needed at this time. All payments are made through PayPal only.

To complete the process you must submit 2 forms (Band Front Registration Form and Volunteer Form). Once you have completed your registration you will receive three emails: One from PayPal with your payment information; and two from Band Boosters (one with your Band Front information and one with your Volunteer information). We recommend saving these emails as they are your receipt for your registration and you may wish to refer to them later.

Band Front Registration Form

On this form, you will be filling out parent and student information and paying the band front, course and activities fees. After filling out the form click Submit and you will be taken to PayPal to pay your fees and complete this portion of the registration process.

Volunteer Form

We ask each family to support their student and the band by signing up for at least two activities. One of the reasons we have a great band is the high level of parent and family support and involvement. The majority of the funds needed to support the band (uniforms, flags, etc.) come from these fundraisers. Note that we will close individual activities once we have enough volunteers, so sooner is better than later if you prefer specific activities.

When you finish the Volunteer Form you will be taken to the Band Registration Form. Do NOT fill out the Band Registration Form. You are done registering, just close the browser window.

If you have any questions or problems, please don’t hesitate to ask!

Thanks!
