Current News & Reminders:

Welcome to the new format of the Band Website!  The Band Website is the quintessential  resource to stay informed with the North Royalton High School Band.  Bookmark this page, as it is updated often.  As it is explained in the Band Handbook, it ultimately is the student’s responsibility to be listening to all announcements, to read the Band Bulletin Board daily,  and to pay attention to all information and announcements given to them.  The Band Website is meant to be a SUPPLEMENT to this, not a SUBSTITUTE.
