NMPK Director’s Message
NPMK Camp 5/22 – Woodwinds, Brass, Percussion, Color Guard
May 22nd from 9 AM – 2 PM is our last “open camp” for the 2021 NPMK pre-season. This is for all potential new and returning students interested in being a Marching Knight in the fall!
Schedule for the Day:
9:00 AM – Welcome, Donuts
9:45 AM – Visual
11:15 AM – LUNCH (bring your own)
12:00 PM – Music
1:45 PM – Q&A about the season
This is an opportunity for all new students to “try out” the NPMK one more time before our season officially begins on June 4th. It will also be an opportunity for students interested in Color Guard to meet/work with our new Color Guard staff! We are also looking for good turnout from our returning NPMK members to help welcome the new kids!

If you purchased a book and haven’t received it yet, please reply to this email to arrange pick up.
Sewing Chair Needed!
We are desperately in need of a Sewing Chair for the 2021-2022 season! The Sewing Chair is responsible for the following:
- The making of any flags needed for the NPMK season. This has been less in recent years due to the introduction of printed flags.
- Any alterations to show uniforms (musicians and color guard) or flag repair. These are usually minor. Formal uniforms are the covered by the Uniform Chair.
- Indoor Guard flags/uniforms, if needed for the High School and Middle School groups.
- Indoor Percussion uniform alterations, if needed.
- Any of the above groups sometime use fabric as part of their props. Assistance may be required.
The work can be very busy, but it is only for a short time. Current Sewing Chair Katy Joyce is happy to answer questions concerning the position and will show you the ropes when the time comes. You may contact her at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Fundraise with Scrip
The next scrip order will be placed Sunday, May 16 and will be available for pick up Wednesday or Thursday that week. All pickups will now be at my house (821 Vassar Dr, Hatfield) from 6:30-8:30pm.
Don’t forget about the in stock cards and e-cards that can be purchased at any time on the RaiseRight app. Now is a perfect time to start earning money to help pay for Marching Knights fees. It will be here before you know it! Check out the website at shopwithscrip.com. Send any questions to email@example.com.
