A Message from Mr. Vitale

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!

-Mr. Vitale

Band Front Registration 2018

Hello Band Front Families,

It is time to register for the 2018-2019 band season. Band Front Registration will be taking place on-line over the next few days. The deadline is June 11.  All fees and information are needed at this time. All payments are made though 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

http://www.northroyaltonbandboosters.com/page/band-front-registration

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

http://www.northroyaltonbandboosters.com/page/volunteer-form

We ask each family to support their student and the band by signing up for at least four 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!
