General Band Booster Volunteering Opportunities
There are a lot of areas where volunteers are needed throughout the year. Based on previous years, over 3000 volunteer-hours are needed to cover all activities the Band Boosters are responsible for.
Weekly/bi-weekly newsletter emails will keep everyone up to date with the latest band news and events. These emails will contain volunteer sign up links so that parents can easily volunteer for the different activities. We understand the complexity of each families schedules, but even if you can help for one hour at one football game, that will be a big help to helping us achieve our goals for the year.
Listed below are many of the areas we typically need the most help with each year. Please help as you are able. We can not do any of this without our wonderful band parents!
