WE NEED TO MOVE OUR THINKING FROM "SHOULD I HELP?" TO "HOW CAN I HELP?"
Thank you to all of you who have already volunteered to help with various roles.
So far, 31 of 82 parents on our roster (38%) have signed up for at least one spot.
We still have 252 spots to fill for you to choose from.
If everyone volunteers a little time, no one will have to do it all.
We still need volunteers to sign up for shifts in all volunteer areas,including many spots for this weekend's competition!
We're using SignUp (the leading online Sign Up and reminder tool) to organize our upcoming volunteer needs. Here's how it works in 3 easy steps:

NEW VOLUNTEER REQUIREMENTS
As you may have learned from recent emails from the school, the school district now has specific requirements for volunteers with the school. For band volunteers, we'd love for you to go ahead and apply for Level 2 approval as soon as possible.
BAND FRUIT SALE
Sale dates: September 1 - November 7
ONLINE ORDERS for December pickup at https://www.floridaindianrivergroves.com/ecommerce/796163
Encourage DIRECT SHIP online orders for earlier delivery
Check orders should be placed in this envelope and checks made to WHHS Band Boosters.
NEW BAND PICK UP PROCEDURE
Remember, for all practice, games and competitions, all band pick up will be through the fire lane at the side of the school. Enter the main entrance to the school and follow the lane to the right of the building - see map here.
When you arrive, please pull in as far as you can and keep to the left side (so students aren't crossing in front of cars that may pass).
This plan was prescribed by the school administration, so we appreciate your continued patience with this new plan.

We need 150 bottles of water for each game and 120 for each competition.
For 6 games and 6 competitions, that is 1632 bottles of water!
Please pick up a case and send it in to the band room.
ONGOING CONCESSIONS DONATIONS NEEDED
Do you shop at Sam's, Costco, or Walmart? We have items we need in larger quantities for concessions, and if each band family picked up one item on their next shopping trip, we could turn each into a larger profit for the band.
