Volunteering Challenge are you in or out?

15 Dec

This holiday season please consider giving a few hours to your Band Family. We have the perfect opportunity coming this week.

We will need many hands to make this task happen. Which task you ask? Well that would be the FBU Championships. Here is what we need for the next 5 day…….

Sunday Dec 16th will be the registration and future’s mini camp day – we will open the concessions (home and away) from 8 am to 3 pm. We are looking for 10 people at each of these shifts – we could use a few more people for the second shift – please sign up on the website.

Monday Dec 17th – there will be two shifts 3 to 7 and 7 to 11 (earlier if the crowd starts to thin) there will be three games that day, it will be the 8th grade quarterfinals. Great job volunteers – we almost have this one staffed fully – shout out to those that have already signed up!!!!!!!

Tuesday Dec 18th – there will be two shifts 3 to 7 and 7 to 11 (again earlier if the crowd thins out). There will be three games that day as well one will be a consolation game and then two semi finals. We could certainly use a few more volunteers on this day for both shifts.

Wednesday Dec 19th – WOW – this is going to be the fun day!!!! This is the 9th grade All-American Game – there will be lots of excitement. We will be opening both the home and the away concession this night as well. We are looking for at least 12 for the home side and 6 for the way side.

Now – here is the other fun thing to be added – our band students will be playing in the stands that evening (the kids know who needs to be there) so we will need to have chaperons there to help Mr. Goff and Mr. McGuire keep things under control. So we will need at least 6 people for this one. To sign up for this task please email Lynette Young at gchs2018youngcoffey@gmail.com.

Thursday Dec 20th – wow we have almost finished this event……. there will be two shifts 3 to 7 and 7 to 11 (earlier if the crowd starts to thin) there will be three games that day, it will be the 6th and 7th grades National Championships We can certainly use more volunteers for both shifts.

PS there is another event scheduled for Dec 27th through the 29th – Shark Shoot out. We will email you about that later next week.

Please email if you have any questions.

I fully understand how inconvenient it is to stop during the holiday times to volunteer for a few hours – we have some many things to do at this time of year. But it is for the kids and this amazing program.

As a bystander you may not realize how fortunate our kids are to have this program – music education has been proven to help develop language and reasoning skills – it helps to teach our kids to multi-task, manage time and to have better organizational skills.

Believe it, (I know they don’t appear to do this at home).

I would like to challenge all of our parents – there are over 500 of you – to sign up to volunteer with your band family this holiday season.

Thank you for your volunteering time!
