General Notes:

  • Thank you to all of the parents and volunteers who have been assisting over the first few weeks of games!

    • There are always opportunities to help… consider stepping up to take on a need we have in some committees! Reach out to the NOBB exec board for more info. NOBB is NOT just for marching band parents!

  • School has started, so concert band has begun! Remind your students to stay patient with the transition process and encourage them in their participation.

  • All NOHS Band Calendars will be merged and color-coded on the band’s website. You can still see each separate calendar on that group’s page, but if you want everything in one place, it will be there.

  • NOHS Music Department Trip- NYC

    • Info sheets can be picked up from any music teacher.

    • Commitment and the first payment installment are due by October 1.


  • Please help us in thanking our administration for their support of our program this year!

    • Brought back CVIS choral/general music teaching position (Ms. Moyer), allowing Mrs. Sine and Mr. Rohrbaugh to spend more time on teaching band lessons and ensembles!

    • Replacement of various instruments and equipment that outlived their lifespan.

NOMB-Specific Notes:

  • Online NOMB absence forms are working out well! Found on newsletters and the Marching Band’s page of the website.

    • Please be mindful of what are excused and unexcused absences! We need everyone here to be successful- all students are first-string players in this activity!

  • Wish our students luck as they begin their competition season! Continue to encourage them to stay well-rested, hydrated, and motivated to push forward!
