A Few Important Things/Updated Parent Mentor List

Hi Band Parents,

Sorry if it seems like you are receiving a lot of emails from the Boosters, but there is so much information to communicate at the start of Marching Band season.

Help Wanted

It may take a village to raise a child, but it takes two cities to help a band.  As you know, the Band Boosters supports the band in many ways and the only way that can happen is if we get the support of all you wonderful parents to run the events. 

We know it can seem like a burden to volunteer, but trust us when we tell you it is worth it.  Not only do you get the satisfaction of knowing you are helping our bandos but you will get to meet other wonderful parents and even have a lot of fun.  So please pull out your calendars and then clink on this link which will take you to our Sign Up Genius to volunteer. 

If you already indicated during registration at which events you will help (every family is asked to fill at least four volunteer slots) then you should see your name already loaded into those events.  But don’t feel that you have to stop at four, you can volunteer 6, 8, even 20 times.  We won’t mind and you will have fun.  So please, again, click on this link and add your name to a few more slots.

Please note that we still have quite a few openings for the events at the beginning of the year, including Photo Buttons and the Air Show.  The Air Show is our biggest fundraiser and we must fill all the slots for all three days.  (The Air Show email parade is about to start unless we get those slots filled!)

Thanks in advance for all your help this year!

Help Given

Previously we shared a list of Parent Mentors for new band members (or old) to be able to reach out to if they have questions and their bando doesn’t seem to know what’s what.    We are happy to include an updated version out with our French Horn mentor now included!

Air Show Information

We Need Your Help!

Dear Parents,

Our biggest fund raiser is the Air Show. We work in the parking lots and at the entrance gates Labor Day weekend rain or shine. We have a good time! The air show provides us with lunch, and we get free admission to the Air Show once our shift is over. For new parents, this is a way to spend time with your teen and meet other band families. Funds from this event are budgeted to the marching band contest show materials and equipment. Without the Air Show, we do not have a quality marching band contest show.

We are in need of a committee of four to five people to take over coordinating the air show. I understand this is last minute. Doug Payne will be the lead for the committee. Please make a decision to be part of this committee so we can make this event a success and fund the contest show.

Thank you for your support and dedication to the band program and most importantly the bandos.

Take Care,

Kathy Payne
NRHS Band Booster President

Air Show Oops! 😉 Correction

Dear Parents,

We appreciate you all and your patience as we as your New Band Booster Board learn all the ropes. We had a bit of information get crisscrossed and we wanted to let you know the funds we raise from the Air Show are allocated to the Band Trip Fund i.e. the Disney Trip, not our contest show.

With that said, this is our largest fund raiser  We work in the parking lots and at the entrance gates Labor Day weekend rain or shine and we have a great time! We look forward to having you help volunteer as well as if you are willing to co-chair please let us know.

Thank you for your support and dedication to the band program and most importantly the bandos.

Take Care,

Kathy Payne
NRHS Band Booster President

Welcome Freshman Parents! Meetings, Band Shirts & More!

Hello Band Parents!

Just a friendly reminder we have 2 informational meetings this Tuesday evening and we are welcoming all incoming freshman parents! We are excited to have your freshman in the band. To help “ease” you into the band program, we are hosting a new parent meeting on Tuesday, June 12th at 6:30 pm at the media center.  Just drop off your Bando and come join us. We will be handing out a “cheat sheet” of tidbits we think you will find helpful and answer questions you may have. Band starts off with a bang and can be overwhelming. Our goal is to help make the band season fun and less stressful.

***Following the Freshman parent meeting we will have an "All" Band Parent meeting. This meeting should conclude at 8pm when Band practice ends.

  • The purple band polos shirts and the white band tee-shirts will be for sale this week at meeting/practice. If you are not able to make it please send your Bando with cash or check. 
  • When writing a check please make it out to North Royalton Band Boosters.
  • Purple polos will be sold for $20
  • White band tee-shirts are $10. We highly recommend two white tee-shirts, one for football games and one for Saturday competitions.

Feel free to call me at 440-476-8027 or e-mail me at kathleenmpayne@gmail.com with any questions or comments. We look forward to seeing you on the 12th.
