2014-2015 Band and Band Front Registrations Due

The Band registrations for next year were due by March 24 (except for Band Front) and while most have successfully submitted their online Registrations, we still have a number of missing registrations, measurement, and volunteer forms that are now late. Please submit the forms as soon as you can. We require the following 3 forms to be filled out and submitted for every band student:

  1. Band Registration (use credit card or paypal)
  2. Measurement Forms (for uniforms)
  3. Volunteer Form

Note: If your student will be a Royalaire or Royalette and does NOT play an instrument during concert season, use the Band Front Registration form, which is now available.

Committee Chairs and Board Members Needed for 2014-2015 Band Season

We have begun to plan for next season and we need a number of parents to step up and fill the open slots vacated by those parents that have graduating seniors. The Band Boosters are the lifeblood of the North Royalton band program and provide the majority of the support and funding required for instruments, uniforms, transportation, etc. Without the boosters, there would be no Marching Band or Concert Band program. Help us to keep the North Royalton band program one of the top programs in the state of Ohio.

A Message from Mr. Vitale

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
