On Tuesday October 30th we will be doing a “Trunk or Treat” for the kids after practice.  You can decorate your car, dress up, or whatever you chose.  An area of the parking lot will be blocked off for parents to park their cars. Last year the kids (and the parents too) LOVED it.  More details will be posted soon.



All State Band Audition:

ALL STATE AUDITION MUSIC is up. You can find it at Click on All State Tab.


Band Fees:

We would like to send a friendly reminder for paying band fees. So far this band season, only 50% of our expected fee payments have been made. This puts the program behind on its budget schedule.

The band fees are vital to help keep the band program operating and cover a variety of expenses such as:

· Music scores

· Band Camp Expenses

· Instrument repair and maintenance

· Competition registration fees

· Transportation

· Uniforms

There are several ways the student fees can be paid. They are:

· US Postal Mail. The address is:

CNHS Bands, PO Box 2122, Columbus, IN 47202

· PayPal using the following link:

· Directly to Mr. Burton or Mr. Bill Stultz

The Scrip Box in the band hallway just outside the band room doors. Please be sure to put your payment in an envelope and mark it fees.

Thursday night Parent Preview fee payment table.

We appreciate everything that you do as parents in supporting the program. Thank you for your help and we look forward to a successful marching season.

If you have any questions regarding your band account, please email the account manager at

Paul Gloeckner, Treasurer – Columbus North Band Booster Association

Booster Meetings:

Perhaps you did not realize as parents and guardians of our CN band, you are all Booster Members.  A booster meeting is not a meeting for only Booster Officers.  In booster meetings you will learn about the program and the upcoming events and projects regarding the band.  Meetings are a great place to ask any questions you may have, or if you have any suggestions that you would like to share.  If you are wanting to help out or volunteer but do not know where to start, meetings are a great place to find the information you need to help with your decision.  During these meetings, we as parents and guardians, come together to make this the best possible program it can be.  The more parent involvement we have, the better program we will become.

Booster meetings are held on the 2nd Thursday of the month (unless there is a conflict).  However, this month the Booster meeting is tonight (Thursday, Oct 18th) at 7 PM due to being cancelled last week.
