NPMK Director’s Message

Yesterday was a great day for the NPMK! The students overcame an electronics issue at the beginning of the show to have their best run of the year and earned an impressive 87.7 score – the highest of all competing bands! Our Knight Crew also received a very well deserved honor – being recognized as the Best Parent Crew of the evening! Our Crew does a phenomenal job. This week they even fixed our podium in the parking lot shortly before our performance. There were no awards for Best Chaperones or Best Dinner Crew but if there were you can be sure North Penn would have been in the running. I am so thankful for all of the parents that make Saturdays (and Fridays) possible.

This week we are excited to be preparing for the Knight of Sound. I can assure you – the NPMK is going to bring it on Saturday night! I am certain that we still need a lot of volunteer help for KOS, so if you are able, please sign up to help!

Knight of Sound

Knight of Sound is happening THIS WEEK!

Thank you all for making this event a great night for our visiting bands and our Marching Knights! Just a couple of last minute things:

If you are loaning a canopy or cooler, please make sure your name is on it. Coolers can go to the Hospitality Suite at noon (Door D2) and the canopy can go to the stadium anytime between noon and 4.

Help is needed to clean up the hospitality suite at the end of the evening. https://www.signupgenius.com/go/30E094CABAC23A02-kos2021

A few more food donations are needed for the hospitality suite. The hospitality suite is for the staff of our visiting bands. Let’s show them what good hosts we are! https://www.signupgenius.com/go/30E094CABAC23A02-food

Gates open at 5 p.m. and the first band steps off at 6:30 p.m.

Parking is in the front of the school. Behind the school parking is reserved for buses & equipment, judges, handicapped, and guest presenters.

Volunteers working the 7 p.m. shift – please arrive 15 minutes early to receive instruction before your replacements leave.

Crew

We will need people to help with setting up the parking lots, directing traffic, and directing parking of the band busses and trucks. Please sign up here: https://www.signupgenius.com/go/10C0D4EA9A72CA5FC1-knight

Please contact npma.kos@gmail.com with questions. Thank you!


Quartermasters

The quartermasters are looking for a couple of BRIGHT LED work lights to use for Knight of Sound on Oct 16th. If you have one that you would like to loan to us for the night please let us know. Thank you. NPMA.quartermaster@gmail.com


Stadium Coats

The Stadium Coats have gotten mixed up, probably in the chaos after games when Marching Knights grab them off of the bleachers. Students: please fill out this form ASAP so we can get the proper coats in each of your hands.

Fill out the Stadium Coat Form.

If you have any questions, please contact npmarchingknights@gmail.com
