We hope this email finds everyone well! The COVID-19 virus has caused some drastic changes in our lives lately and we hope everyone has been able to keep a little music in their day to help them unwind!
We have a few items that need to be taken care of to ensure a smooth beginning to the band season for the 2020-2021 School Year.
In order to help plan for the summer band camp as well as next years marching band season, we do need everyone to Register their student for Band for the 2020-2021 school year! Registration is open through April 10th. All students who play instruments in either marching band OR concert band should register. Please take a moment to click and register your band student for the upcoming Band Season. Band Front registration will follow tryouts in the spring.

BAND BOOSTER MEETING
We will be holding a VIRTUAL BAND BOOSTER MEETING Thursday April 16th at 7:00pm. At this meeting we will be voting for board members for the upcoming school year, so please plan on attending. A link to join the meeting will be posted shortly.
BAND BOOSTER CHAIR OPPORTUNITIES
While there may be uncertainty regarding school and band activities in the near term, one thing we know for sure is that we need to start preparing for next school year’s band program. And as always one of the most important steps in that process is filling open committee co-chair roles. Most of these roles don’t require a tremendous time commitment but all critical to the success of our spectacular band program. We try to have co-chairs for every committee so those who step up to lead them are able to share the load while having fun with friends. Currently, we are looking for the following co-chair roles: Pit Crew, Fruit Sale, Munching For Music, Festival of Bands, Spiritwear, and Website.
If you are interested in volunteering for one of these, please reach out to Kevin Sexton at vicepresident@ nrbandboosters.org .
Stay safe and we will see you all soon!
