PERKINS ITINERARY 

Last Chance Contest Hoodies

Hi Band Parents,

It is great to see so many proud bando’s wearing their “Left Brain, Right Brain” contest hoodies around town already. We have heard from some people that missed the deadlines for both the band booster membership gear and the online store but are hoping they might still be able to buy one of these spectacular wearable mementos of a great show. Well, we are happy to report that we will be facilitating a “Second Chance Sale” but the available quantities are very limited.

Contest Hoodie Second Chance Sale Process

  • Orders will be taken on a first come, first served basis via email to  sexton729@gmail.com   starting at 10:00 pm ET on Monday September 30 th
  • Each email order must contain the following information:
    • Parent Name
    • Parent Phone Number
    • Parent email
    • Student Name
    • Contest Hoodie Size (adult sizes only: S, M, L, XL, 2XL)
  • Price for each hoodie is $40 (late fee included) except 2XL which is $45.
  • Only one hoodie can be ordered per email and a specific size must be designated to be valid.
  • An email will be sent to those whose orders will be fulfilled with expectation they will be paid for and picked up after the 6-9 practice on October 2 nd .
  • Any orders not paid for and picked up after the 6-9 practice on October 2 nd  will be deemed cancelled and the hoodie will go to the next unfulfilled order in the queue matching its size.
  • Orders received before 10:00 pm ET on September 30 th  are not valid.
  • Orders sent to any email other than  sexton729@gmail.com  or sent in hardcopy are not valid.
  • If the number of orders received is significantly higher than the number of available hoodies, we will evaluate the feasibility of another printing run but that is not guaranteed.
  • Please do not contact Gearin Up directly regarding additional contest hoodie orders as they will just refer you back to the Boosters

From the Desk of Mr. Vitale

Band Families,

We have had a meeting with the Band Staff, NRHS Administration, Athletic Director, and Officer Karl in an effort to help clarify traffic flow on Friday nights with the construction. Please note the new instructions for drop off/pick up of Band Students on Friday nights:

Friday Night Parking and Drop Off for Band Students

Drop off of students: 

Parents should enter via driveway #3, drop off their child, and exit via driveway #4. 

Students arriving and parking:

Students can park in the spots allocated for band students along the rear of the Staff Parking Lot (which will remain open until 4:14 PM).

Students should enter driveway #3 and park in the spots in front of the main office once the back gate is closed.

If all the spots in front of the school and the rear of the Staff Parking Lot are taken, students should park at Memorial Park.

Student Pick-up After the game:

Parents should enter driveway #4 and pick up their child in the Staff Parking Lot. All parents should then exit the parking lot by way of driveway #4.  Parents should not pick up students in the lot between the middle school and high school.

Students leaving after the game: 

Students should leave by way of driveway #4

Thank you, everyone, for your help with this!

Football game, Revere Adjudicated Event, Senior Dinner

This Weeks game is Friday, Sept 27th at Stow-Monroe Falls High School. (3227 Graham Rd, Stow OH 44224) Come cheer us on!

Our first Band Adjudicated Event this year is Saturday, Sept 28th at Revere High School. (3420 Everett Rd. Richfield) Wear your purple/ spirit wear and cheer for our Bears! Students must wear their contest pants for this event. For new parents: These events are very crowded. The event starts at 5 pm and North Royalton plays at 9:05 pm. It is quite an amazing experience to see all of the other marching bands perform. However, If you cannot make the entire event, I would recommend getting there at least 1 1/2 hrs early to avoid any parking and seating issues that may arise. Please see Mr. Vitale's website under performances for your student's itinerary and a driving map. See you all there!
