Graduation in June 2nd at 10 am in the main gym.  This is a REQUIRED performance for all band students, unless you are graduating.  Students are to arrive at 9:15 am.  The dress code is nice casual.  NO JEANS OR SHORTS!!!  Guys it would be nice if you could wear a tie.  This is a very important performance for the Senior parents and relatives as well as for our School Corporation. Graduation will last until around 11:15, so if you do not stay for graduation, plan or picking your student up around that time.

Booster Meetings: EVERYONE is invited

Perhaps you don’t realize that as parents and guardians of our CN band, you are all Booster Members.  A booster meeting isn’t 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 don’t know where to start, meetings are a great place to get the information you need to help with your decision.  During these meetings, we as parents, come together to make this the best possible program it can be.  The more parent involvement we have, the better program we can become.

Booster meetings are held on the 2nd Thursday of the month (unless there is a conflict).  Due to summer break The next booster meeting is Thursday August 16th at 7 pm in the choir.



Italian Envelopes:

Envelopes available at any time.  Just see Melissa Hacker, Denise Sharpe or Amy Jackson.  We will try to have these out on Tuesday and Thursday rehearsals.  There are still several to choose from.

Sound of North Garage Sale:

The Sound of North Garage sale will be Friday June 15th and Saturday June 16th from 8-4 both days.  Start collecting your things now.  In the next week or 2 we will be putting a sign up out for those that want to participate and how many tables they will need (tables may be limited depending on participation)

Sound of North Blood Drive:

Friday June 15th, from 1 pm to 7 pm, at the Fair Oaks mall (near Mark Pi’s) we will be hosting a blood drive.  Students will receive $10 per unit of blood received.  Papers will be going out soon for students to hand out so we know who gets the credit when a donor gives blood.

2018-2019 Marching Season:

The name of the show has been announced.



Stay tuned for more to come!!!!!!!


All forms are to be turned in before we break for summer!!!!!  Please download forms from the web page,, off of facebook, or there are a few copies in the band room your student can pick up.  

Please have all forms turned in by June 7th.

I believe there is a prize for the section that gets all of their forms turned in first.  Don’t be the one to cause your section not to win.
