Thank You, Band Families

Dear Band Families,

I cannot thank you enough for your participation in the Cleveland National Airshow. Although our numbers were significantly down this year, those of you who volunteered did a fantastic job and for those of you who volunteered to work two days, well, there just are no words. Your efforts are greatly appreciated.

After a rough start on Saturday, you all came through on Monday in a big way. Airshow officials have told me that Monday was the largest attended day in recent memory. It was estimated we had well over 5000 cars come through the gate on Monday. Fortunately, we had a whopping 94 volunteers that day allowing us to easily handle the volume. And even better, the lot was completely full by 2:30 PM and we were done!

The North Royalton High School Marching Band is a large organization and a big operation. Without the help of volunteers like you, our kids would not be able to enjoy the benefits of belonging to this great organization.

Please stay involved in any way you can and again, thank you for your efforts and contribution to the kids and the marching band!

Gary Diehl, Airshow Chairperson

We Really Need Your Help This Weekend

Dear Band Families,

We are down to 61 openings for Air Show this weekend. Those 61 spots are worth over $2,000! Plus, our numbers for Sunday and Monday are low enough that we may not be invited back next year. Help us earn money for our band this year and keep the opportunity for future years. It is fun and easy work. You get to see the show for free, and lunch & parking are provided too. Make it a family day and volunteer with your high school kids!

Please sign up here.

If you have questions, contact Gary Diehl at

Car Raffle Tickets Were Distributed

Dear Band Families,

The Band Booster Car Raffle tickets were distributed last night after practice. If your child did not receive their envelope ask them to see Mr. Burdick to pick it up. Please remind your student that they are responsible for the raffle tickets they received. Whether they are able to sell them or not, they need to be turned in by Wednesday, October 11, 2017. DO NOT LOSE YOUR TICKETS!!

Thank you for your cooperation in this Fundraiser!

A Message From Mr. Vitale

Dear Band Families

On behalf of the Band Boosters, I just wanted to remind parents that we still need volunteers for this weekend’s Air Show. We have slots that need to be filled for Saturday, Sunday, and Monday. It is not hard work, there are plenty of breaks, and lunch is provided! You can even make an event of it with your student, because they can help as well (as long as they are over 15) and then you guys get to see the Air Show while you are helping out!

You can signup online using our form.

You can also call and contact Gary Diehl 440-915-1178 or Amanda Kost 440-864-6543 if a phone call is easier.

This is one of our biggest fundraisers for the Band - and if we are not able to fully staff it, then we run the risk of not being invited to run it in the future. This is a great opportunity that many sports and organizations would love to have, and we are very fortunate to have this fundraiser - so let’s work hard to make sure we can hold onto it! Any time you can give towards this fundraiser is greatly appreciated and directly benefits your student. Please use the link to sign up or call one of the above people to help with this. Thanks!

-Mr. V.

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 THANKS!

Here is what we need:

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 6 pm – halftime.

CHAPERONES – help chairperson to make sure all buses 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!
