Week of September 2

3 Sep

Sharkettes is coming up quick.  This event is one of our easiest fundraisers of the year.  Plus it is awesome to see 150+ little kids dancing along with the band.  We are hoping for a record number of kids this year.  Attached is the form needed for students to participate.  As a reminder, students will receive $25 in their student account for each student they sponsor.  

Seniors should have received an email last week with a link for the senior night forms.  Please complete this form this week.  Thank you to the 15 who have already completed it (only 70 more to go). 

We are in need of many more volunteers this Friday for our home game.  While we know everyone is very busy, the band can only work with everyone giving a little.  Please go to http://www.gchsharkband.com/volunteer/volunteer-opportunities/ to sign-up to help.  Don’t forget that all volunteers must be registered through our new volunteer system, RAPTOR.  You will need to go to https://www.collierschools.com/volunteer and click on the big green button that says “volunteer application log-in.”  Once you apply you should receive an email that the district has received your application.  Once the district has approved your application you should receive a second email that will grant you the ability to create your password and portal log in.  If you have issues with the log-in process you can call 1-877-7RAPTOR to reset the password with a customer support rep.
