It’s that time of the year again!

The GHS Band Holiday Craft Show is coming once again to Green High School! 

Mark your calendars for Sat, Nov 5 to come shop 9 am to 4 pm AND support the Green Band Boosters and the Green Band program! The Band Boosters support grades 5-12 in all band related activities. Last year with our combined fundraising efforts of our concession stand at home football games and our craft show, we were able to purchase a complete drum line for the GHS Marching Band. 

It’s $2 per person to get in. No strollers. 
The hallways get very packed so no strollers please. It’s a good idea to leave the kids with the hubby and have a girl’s day out! 

D&M Grill will be there serving up yummy lunchtime treats along with over 170 unique craft and food vendors! 

It’s a great place to start your Christmas shopping. New this year to our show, we will be giving every paid admission a Craft Show Directory with all our vendors listed per the colored hallways in the school. This way you’ll be able to find your favorite crafters throughout the year! 
We hope to see you there!!!

New Marching Season Begins!!

As the new Marching season begins for 2022 we have lots of information and updates in regards to Fundraising, Disney, Band Camp, Football Games, Volunteers/Chaperones and even our ByLaws being updated.

ByLaws – These were updated at the end of last school year to align with all the changes in the past 10+ years. Here is a link to the FINAL DRAFT of the ByLaws that we will be voting on as a group at the next Band Booster Meeting August 22nd.

Volunteers – We need YOU! Please consider helping out the Band and volunteering for the various jobs and opportunities to help make Band a success for our students!

Dinner tomorrow at Raising Canes, a fundraiser for the band.  TOMORROW from 10am to 10pm.  It’s at the North Canton Location by Chick-fil-a & Joann’s, across the street from Target. You don’t need to show the flyer, but you must mention the band.

Our first trip accounts fundraiser opportunity is Handel’s Pint Cards. The dates for this fundraiser is Monday, February 21 thru Friday, March 18. There will be a box in the band room in which you can turn in your forms and money. 
Each Pint card is $5.75 and good for one (1) pint of any flavored ice cream, redeemable at Handel’s Ice Cream. Students participating will receive a portion of the $5.75 into their trip accounts managed by the Green Band Boosters. The amount each student earns per card sold will be based on how many we sell as a group. All money is to be collected up front (pre-sold) and all checks written out to the GREEN BAND BOOSTERS. Once the money has been collected, Handel’s will then create cards for students to deliver. See current fundraisers page for more details.

Finally, Scrips is having Thank Scripting days coming up on Feb 24 and Feb 25. Check out the Scrips Fundraising page for more information on Scrips and how purchasing gift cards through the program help the band!
