Hello Band Families,
It is time to register for the 2019-2020 band season. Registration will be taking place online over the next couple of weeks. The deadline is March 22. All fees and information are needed at this time. Have your credit or debit card ready when you register. All payments are made through Key Bank Merchant Services. We are not using Pay Pal this year. Please have your student’s measurements (if they are a freshman or they were unhappy with their uniform fit last year) handy when you begin registration. If you know of any parents of 8th graders who will be in band next year, please forward this e-mail to them.
Once you have completed your registration you will receive an email from Band Boosters with your Band Registration Information. We recommend saving this email as it is your receipt for your registration.
Family Volunteer Commitment:
New this year, the Family Volunteer Commitment is part of the Registration Form. We ask each family to support their student and the band by signing up for at least four activities. One of the reasons we have a great band is the high level of parent support and involvement. The majority of the funds needed to support the band (uniforms, instruments, etc.) come from these fundraisers. It is a good idea to have your calendar available. The Sign up Geniuses for each activity will open on a different webpage, so remember to return to the registration page to complete the registration. Note that we will close individual activities once we have enough volunteers. If you have more than one band student, you are not expected to volunteer for additional activities. Simply check the box in the FAMILY VOLUNTEER COMMITMENT section that you have already signed up for four volunteer activities.
Band Front (Royalaires and Royalettes):
If you have a student who participates in band for the full year, you need to register for band now. If they are selected for the band front, you will have additional band front fees that you will need to pay later via a Band Front Registration Form that will open up in May. If you have a student that only wants to participate in the band front, but not in the concert bands, then you should wait and register using the Band Front Registration form in May after your student finds out if they are selected. You will then pay the course/participation/uniform fees plus the band front fees. Note that you may want to sign up for volunteer activities now since we close out activities once we reach the optimal number of volunteers. If you wait until May, you might not be able to sign up for your preferred volunteer activity. Click on the registration form to see the various activities available through Sign up Genius. You can register for events via Sign up Genius without completing the band registration form.
