    Basket/Gift Card Donations
    WE NEED YOUR HELP! PLEASE SIGN UP TODAY TO MAKE OUR EVENTS SUCCESSFUL!
    We would like to consolidate our donation efforts for all fundraisers for the year by asking our community businesses for a one time donation for the year. This will help us create baskets for the following events, Ducky Regatta, Trivia Night, Bag Bingo, Pasta Percussion, May Fair etc.
     
    Please use the sign up genius for the community businesses listed. If you have connections or are a customer at another business not listed, please use this letter - Solicitation Letter 2017 - to solicit the donation and let Jen Logan know so we can add it to the list. We do not want people to "double dip" and risk us losing the donation. If the business has any questions you can't answer, please direct them to Jen Logan at npma.treasurer@gmail.com.

    Publicity

    URGENT NOTICE ABOUT VIDEOTAPING:
    Videotaping at US Bands, YEA, and BOA events by band parents is prohibited!!
    Posting of any 2017 band video on an unsecured website (YouTube, Facebook, Twitter, Snapchat etc) is strictly prohibited!!

    NPMK purchases the rights to arrange & perform music - WE DO NOT HAVE THE RIGHTS TO VIDEO or publish a performance. This years show we own the rights to the music - this is a huge royalty free advantage for us, however, we still can't videotape or publish any portion of the show. You must keep in mind that you are putting your students program at risk if you choose to videotape & post the video on any social media. NPMK does have videographers who provide the staff a copy of that weeks performance strictly for the purpose of improving the bands performance.
     

    Photos From the Season
    Parents and students: Photos from the season are continuously being posted on Flickr.  To access them, please go to Flickr.com/photos/npma.
     

    NPMA Board
    The NPMK Season is over however  NPMA's work continues.  Please consider taking one of the positions on the NPMA Board next year.  There are a number of parents who are senior parents and will not be returning next year.  And as always Every Position is Open when elections happen in the Spring.  Please take some time to review the responsibilities for each position and consider volunteering.  I will be looking for help from 2-3 NPMA members (parents) to identify candidates in January/February.   Nominations happen at the March General Meeting and Elections are at the April General Meeting.
