Congrats to NHS Band member Jordan Solomon Klein — the Class of 2017 salutatorian!
We are so proud of him and all of our graduates!
If you are interested in NHS Band and Marching Guard for the 2017 season, plan on attending our Orientation on June 5 from 7 - 8:30 p.m. (6:30 check in) at Newtown High School. Both students and parents should plan on attending. Check out our website for more information.
Today is the day! From 10am - 5pm you can come to the Newtown High School cafeteria and get a new mattress! The cafeteria has been transformed into a mattress showroom so you can check out all the mattresses available before you buy. All orders will be delivered to your house at a convenient date for you. Pillows and mattress protective covers are also available. The best part is that part of your purchase goes to help the Nighthawks Band and Guard program! Print out the coupon below for free sheets for any order over $399. Hope to see you there!
Once again, it's that time of year! Our mattress fundraiser is quickly approaching!

Home Show tomorrow! Please join us.

Want to be part of the success of the NHS Marching Band & Guard program? Want to do something that is valuable, fun and of great service to our band & guard family? Then become a member of the NHSBPC executive board!
Our award-winning band & guard program has executive board member openings for the upcoming 2017 season. As an NHSBPC team member you will assist in the continued running of this well-oiled machine whether that's by sending out scheduled emails (Corresponding Secretary), keeping track of funds and budgets (Treasurer), recording the meeting minutes (Recording Secretary) or acting as liaison between NHSBPC members, students, and instructors (President& Vice President).
For continuity we ask that members with freshmen, sophomores and juniors (2017-2018 school year) apply. With one night a month dedicated to our board meeting followed by our membership meeting, your time commitment may be surprisingly low. Our team is happy to answer any questions you may have about any of the openings so please ask! Make it your own and remember, our team and responsibilities are very well-organized--we are always available to help or consult!
In addition to executive board positions, we will also have several important committees that will need leadership. Students and parents graduate out and the show must go on!
Please see below for open coordinators and executive board positions. Elections will take place in May so please don't hesitate to jump in! Contact Scott Reiss, our Nominating Committee Chair at firstname.lastname@example.org with your interest.
Since there are several existing board members staying on, once we have three new parent members joining, we will work together to figure out what is the best fit for each person. The hard truth is that this program cannot continue if we do not fill the board. Rest assured! This is a fun and worthwhile investment of your volunteer time!
Board positions include:
Treasurer* – Bookkeeping/Accounting experience a plus! We use QuickBooks.
Corresponding Secretary – Needs to be able to check emails a few times during the day.
*We would love to start training a new treasurer while Azra is still on the board!
Parent Coordinators Immediate Openings
We need a parent to take over the SCRIP Coordinator position since Muriel’s son will be graduating in June. This is a very important fundraising program and it only takes a couple hours each month of your time to make a huge difference in the band & guard program. Muriel will train you!
Superfun Inflatables Coordinator
This is the easiest fundraiser to coordinate! Simply be the liaison between the board and the Superfun Inflatable’s owner and coordinate the volunteers. One event in June, possibly a second over the summer. Michele Buzzi will train you!
Mattress Fundraiser Coordinator
Again, one of the easiest fundraisers to run! Simply be the liaison between the board and the mattress sales representative, coordinate publicity (with other parents) and keep track of the few volunteers we need the day of the sale. Very easy and Michele Buzzi will train you!
Contact NHSBPC if interested.
We are looking for some storage space for the props over the winter so we can determine if we will use any of the materials or graphics in the future. This would include the 12 graphics and bases along with the fun house panels (not the scaffolding).
If anyone has room any storage space at your home or work and would be willing to store these items over the winter please email Michele Buzzi ASAP at email@example.com
We need to move the props out this Sunday so please let me know as soon as possible if you have any space.
Long term solutions - we are also looking for long term solutions to store our winter program floors (April through Nov.) along with some items that we need for the winter show and can't leave in the container as we sometimes can't access the container in the winter due to snow.
Again, if you have space or have a suggestion please email Michele Buzzi at firstname.lastname@example.org
