Dear Band Families,
Our first Band Booster meeting is next week. After our regular meeting there will be a meeting for new Band Booster Parents (all are welcome). Here is the information.
First Band Booster Meeting:
Monday, August 18, at 7pm in the High School Performing Arts Center
All parents are welcome! We encourage all parents to attend the monthly booster meetings. Please try to make plans to attend at least several monthly meetings each year. We realize it is difficult to commit but valuable information is discussed at these meetings. Normally the meetings are on Monday evenings, once a month at 7:00 pm.
Freshman Parents/New Parents Meeting:
Right after the Band Booster meeting in the High School Performing Arts Center
We are asking the parents of freshman and new members to please stay after the Booster meeting for a very special meeting to introduce you to the Booster organization and the Band program in general. Of course, all members are welcome to stay and participate! Sportswear and membership will be there along with many of the volunteer committee chairs to explain what we do. There will be a question and answer opportunity as well. We look forward to seeing you!

We must fill 50 more spots on Sunday, August 31st, and 66 more spots on Monday, September 1st.& This is one of our largest fundraisers and we need to fill these spots to make the $10,000 this year and to keep the fundraiser for next year. Please make time in your schedule to fill these spots. Volunteers must be at least 15 years old or be an incoming freshman. Volunteers may be other family members or friends!

Dear Band Families:
As you are doing your “Back-To-School” Shopping, talk to your student and verify they have EVERYTHING they need for this marching band season!
- Combination lock
- Instrument Lyre (at Royalton Music Center)
- Flip-folder pages (at Royalton Music Center)
- Band T-Shirt (purchased through band website)
- Band Polo (purchased through band website)
- Marching Band Shoes (any resizes or late orders - go directly to Royalton Music)
- Black Calf-Length Socks - NOT ANKLE SOCKS - at least one, perhaps 2 pairs
- Black Gloves (purchased at Royalton Music Center) - at least one, perhaps 2 pairs
- Khaki Pants - (not cargo pants - not corduroy pants)
- Black Belt
- UnderArmor (black) / Long Johns - (for the colder weather) - reminder pajama pants / flannel pants / fleece pants are NOT permitted under the uniform, and they are too bulky, so investing in a pair of long johns or UnderArmor (black) for the colder weather would be wise.
Welcome back to another great season with the North Royalton High School Marching Band! What a great organization to be a part of! I look forward to volunteering my time to support it. It's hard to believe band camp starts this week! Please check the website (www.northroyaltonbandboosters.com) often to stay in touch with the daily events during this busy time of year. As you will see below, there are many volunteer opportunities to help out! The success of this great organization is not only because we have some of the best directors around, or the best school district, or even the best kids. It really is because we have the best parents! Our involvement is what makes the wheels on the band bus go around! Think about it, without you, these kids wouldn't be here. Get ready for the busiest and potentially most rewarding time of the year.
We have begun to plan for next season and we need a number of parents to step up and fill the open slots vacated by those parents that have graduating seniors. The Band Boosters are the lifeblood of the North Royalton band program and provide the majority of the support and funding required for instruments, uniforms, transportation, etc. Without the boosters, there would be no Marching Band or Concert Band program. Help us to keep the North Royalton band program one of the top programs in the state of Ohio.
We are looking for volunteers to fill the slots listed below. Ideally, candidates will be available for 2 years and have some previous experience with the band boosters. However, past experience is not required. If you are unsure of the duties, the out-going chairs are more than happy to work with you to ensure a smooth and orderly transition. Contacts are listed along with the descriptions below. For general questions, or to volunteer, please contact the Booster president, Rich Hrin at (440) 668-7428 (firstname.lastname@example.org) if you can help out.
Thanks for helping us to make 2014-2015 the best year ever!
The Band registrations for next year were due by March 24 (except for Band Front) and while most have successfully submitted their online Registrations, we still have a number of missing registrations, measurement, and volunteer forms that are now late. Please submit the forms as soon as you can. We require the following 3 forms to be filled out and submitted for every band student:
- Band Registration (use credit card or paypal)
- Measurement Forms (for uniforms)
- Volunteer Form
Note: If your student will be a Royalaire or Royalette and does NOT play an instrument during concert season, use the Band Front Registration form, which is now available.
