First Band Booster Meeting and Freshman Parents/New Members Meeting

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!

Uniform Distribution, Picture Day, Air Show & More - July 2014 Newsletter

Hi Everyone,

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 ( 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.
