Reminder - Fruit Sale

Hello Band Families!

Just a friendly reminder we should all continue to sell fruit. Please ask everyone you know friends, family, co-workers & neighbors. Who doesn't love Fresh Florida Fruit!

The holidays are right around the corner and this wonderful fruit makes the perfect gift for anyone and you can even order on-line. Don't forget to let your customers know it will come in the first or second week in December and your Band Student will deliver it to them.

This Fruit Sale is a huge fundraiser to help support our band and we appreciate all of your support.

Thank you for all your hard work,

Friday Night Reminders - Photo Buttons, Air Show, Flickr & More!

Hi Band Parents,

Friday is the second football game of the season and we wanted to share a few important reminders.

Photo Buttons

Don’t forget to stop over at the photo button table by the North Gate to pick up your photo button order. Friday’s game is the second last day to pick up the buttons. Don’t miss your opportunity to wear your bright, smiling child on your Bear-wear. If you haven’t ordered yet, there is still time to buy these world-famous buttons if you stop by the table before the game on Friday. The photo button table will be there from about 6:00 until the end of the first quarter.

Air Show

For those who have not picked up their Air Show parking tickets and waiver forms, please stop by the table by the North Gate before the game. You need these tickets to park in the volunteer lots and access your assigned gate.

Air Show forms will be available from about 6:00 to the end of the first quarter.

Remember the Air Show runs rain or shine so we need to show up regardless of the weather.

We are also still looking for Air Show volunteers so please consider signing up or signing up for another day. Please click on this link which will take you to our Sign Up Genius to volunteer. We need to fill all 85 slots per day to ensure maximum payout for the band and to avoid losing this important fundraiser.

Membership

Here is the like to the membership form. If you have not done so yet please print and fill out and send into the white band box or send in tomorrow at Fee, Form & Photo Day.

There will also be Membership registration forms at the table by the North Gate before the game. If you have not already joined the boosters, please consider joining. There are membership levels to suit anyone’s budget and the funds are instrumental to providing the vibrant band community and tradition of excellence we have all come to enjoy. (Plus you get cool goodies when you sign up.)

Stay for the game

We know it can be tempting to leave after the band performs the wonderful halftime show, thinking you saw everything you wanted to and want to beat the traffic. However, we encourage you to stay for the whole game. The football team is exciting this year, as shown by last week’s win, and the band plays “stadium jams” all fourth quarter plus the post-game Alma Mater. And if you head down to the school after the band marches out, you might see the drum line doing one of their spectacular “Flagpole” performances. It is definitely worth the wait and the walk!

Pictures and Videos

Check out the Band Boosters Flickr page to see the wonderful candid photos taken of band members each game and event. Halftime and contest shows are also posted up to YouTube for enjoyment again and again.

See you under the lights!

Thursday Band Booster Parent Meeting & Ice Cream Social Info

Hello Band Parents!

Don't forget there is a Band Booster Parent meeting this Thursday, August 16th at 7 pm in the High School Media Center.

We look forward to seeing you there and seeing some new faces as well. Please come with any questions you may have.

Also, don't forget Parent Preview Night and our Ice Cream Social is this Friday, August 17th at the NR Football Stadium. You can arrive as early as 6 pm for ice cream and the Band Performance starts at 7 pm. Ice cream will be set up by the home concessions stand at the stadium. First, come pick up your tickets by using the student's last name that was written on the order form. You will receive tickets for all of the cups of ice cream that you ordered, so each family member can turn in a ticket when that person is ready to eat. Band students can get their tickets from a family member when they are done performing.

The ice cream social will shut down around 6:50 and reopen after the preview so that our volunteers can enjoy the show.

Thank you for supporting the band by enjoying some delicious ice cream!

Have a great week!

Reminder Photo Buttons Tuesday August 14th

Hi Band Parents,

Tuesday is picture day and, in addition to the school sponsored pictures, the band boosters will once again be taking pictures for our world famous Photo Buttons!  So make sure your band member knows they need to get their picture taken by both the school photographer and the booster photographers in order for you to have the chance show your pride by wearing their smiling face.  To make the booster buttons even more special, we take individual shots and allow small group shots (up to 4 people) so siblings and friends can be in the same button.  There is no cost for any of the boosters pictures to be taken. 

Button orders can be placed at Parent Preview  Night and the first home game so stop by our tables at each.  The boosters’ Photo Buttons will be sold for the unbelievably low price of $5 each or 3 for $12.  Button creation takes about a week but can take a little longer if volumes are high.

Please note the booster Photo Buttons are different and independent from buttons that might be part of the school-sponsored photo packages.

We are also still looking for volunteers to help at the football games to take orders and distribute the buttons.  Please click on  this link which will take you to our Sign Up Genius to volunteer.

Thank you,

The Photo Button Committee
