Weekly Update: 9/13-9/18

Hello Marching Band Families,

I hope you are enjoying this beautiful weekend. Congratulations to the students for an excellent performance last evening.

After the competition it was discussed that we are in desperate need for help with pushing equipment and props. I have added a spot to the SignUp that would allow parents to sign up to push equipment to and from the field. Parents would not ride the bus or supervise students; you would only assist with moving equipment. You will not need to submit clearances to do this job. Please sign up at: https://signup.com/go/WNaoGOC

As of today, we only have 7 concession workers – we need parents to volunteer for Friday night: https://signup.com/go/znLKPyK
