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!


OMEA State Contest

Hello Fellow Band Parents,

We are very proud to be sponsoring the OMEA States event in our school! As you know, our bands SWEPT the Westlake District Band Contest with SUPERIOR ratings. Let’s show our support and spirit and give our visiting bands a WARM welcome to NRHS!

State Band Contest is on Friday, April 28 (3:30-11:30 pm) and Saturday, April 29 (7:30-11:30 am). It takes roughly 100 volunteers to support this event! We only have 25% of the spots filled. It is another significant fundraiser for the Band Boosters and will be successful because of our parent volunteers.

All band students will be assigned a job by Mr. Vitale to help with hosting this event. Please consider joining us for a 3 hour (or more) position of your choice. It's a great way to be with friends, show your NORO pride and help out the band! The jobs are simple, and we can assure you that, due to the flexibility of the schedule, you will get to see your student perform.

Please click on this link and sign up today!

You can also click here to help with the Easter Seals Fill the Truck fundraiser on Friday and Saturday, April 28-29!
