We are excited to welcome everyone for the 2019 Marching band season.
Scrimmage Game TONIGHT!!!
Hope everyone can make it out to support the band tonight, as they play in the stands tonight!!! We will not be performing during half-time. Students should wear their 2019 Marching band t-shirt that they received yesterday at practice. Kick-off is 7:30 pm.
Thanks to everyone who has volunteered for tonight’s game! We are in desperate need of volunteers for ALL upcoming games.
Dues and Fundraisers
Please remember to pay your dues!!! We operate the band from the money collected for dues. Dinners, snacks, waters, special band events, scholarships, etc. All functions of the band are dependent on band dues being paid. We appreciate everyone getting this done!
The band is planning on hosting a Car Wash Fundraiser on Saturday, October 12th. More details will follow shortly. We will definitely need a few outdoor “tents” for shade, if anyone has one they can loan. Please save the date. A volunteer and donation sheet will be posted soon. Please help by making our ONE fundraiser a huge success!
Practices and Game Night
Weekly practices will be Tuesdays and Thursdays 4-6 pm. Please bring water and sunscreen everyday! We will be outside. Dress appropriately.
Games are Friday night. Please refer to band website for information on upcoming game schedule and band news. North Springs Band Website
Dinner is provided for students on game night!
Game Schedule and Volunteers
Below is the game schedule for 2019 Marching season. We will need 4-6 chaperones for every game. This is a very simple, fun volunteer opportunity. Simple: transport water coolers, seat cushions, and first aid kit to stands, hand out water throughout show, collect a little trash, and load out at end of game. This is a wonderful opportunity to meet other band parents, get to know the students, and have the best, free, non-crowded seat in the house. It’s basically VIP!!!
I challenge each family to volunteer for ONE game. We lost many of our long time volunteers when their students graduated last year. We need volunteers!!! Especially, for away games. We cannot leave NS without chaperones on the bus.
Volunteer sign-up sheets will be available at Gear Up Days and at first day of band camp. You can sign up online at the following link. If you are unable to access the form, please email Stacy Kerber at firstname.lastname@example.org with the date you can volunteer and she will add you to the list. Volunteer Sign-up Sheet All volunteer opportunities can be accessed through this form. It will be continually updated as volunteer needs change.
If you have not done so this year, please complete the school volunteer process at Fulton School Volunteer Process. This takes about 30 minutes to complete online, and you will be set for the year.
