Cleaning Out Your Closets for Easter Seals

Well, the nice weather is upon us and it is time to start thinking about changing the closets for summer! What a perfect time since the NRBB ‘Fill the Truck’ for Easter Seals event is Saturday, April 23 from 9-6 by the Board of Education.

So please help the marching band and Easter Seals by pulling the small, worn, torn cloth items (ANY cloth items) and bring them to the collection on Saturday, April 23rd!

Here is a great article about the event. Share it with your friends and family and ask them to donate too!

We also still have a few shifts available to volunteers. If you would like to help, click here and sign up.

As always, thanks for all you do!

Band Families,

We are on the homestretch to the end of the school year and the Band Awards Banquet is fast approaching. Attached is the invitation and RSVP form. (The RSVP is the second page of the document.) RSVP’s are due back on May 2.

A check is needed to pay for everyone attending who is not a Senior Band Student. The cost is $11 per person. Seniors band members are free. Please put the RSVP and payment in an envelope and mark it, “Awards Banquet Night” and have your student drop it off in the white band box.

Even if you do not attend the dinner, everyone is welcome and encouraged to attend the Band Awards program which starts at 7:00pm. It is a great way to spend an enjoyable evening with family and friends.

Hope to see everyone there!

They call it a Spirit Day, so let's show them how much band spirit we have by eating a lot of Chick-fil-A that day! You can literally eat there for breakfast, lunch and dinner if that's what you choose to do. We will just appreciate any support you can give. When you visit the restaurant, please bring a paper copy of the flyer with you, or just show it on your phone. We know how popular Chick-fil-A sandwiches always are at different Royalton events, so now you can enjoy anything from their restaurant while helping the band earn some moo-lah. Let's have a great Spirit Day by supporting a generous business as they give support back to us.

Thank you!

We Need Your Help For States and Easter Seals

Hello Fellow Band Parents,

It is time to plan for our next major fundraiser! We will be hosting State Band Contest on Friday, April 22 (3:30-11:30 pm) and Saturday, April 23 (7:30-11:30 am). This event is similar to what you saw at Westlake in February. It takes roughly 100 volunteers to support this event! 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.
