The band can't survive without the valuable time and effort contributed by our wonderful parent volunteers.
We know that not everyone is available for everything and you have certain areas you are more comfortable in helping with than others.
Please give some thought to how you can help and consider all the options below.
The needs are many, but the more participation we have, the less will be required from each of us.
Each band family is required to make a commitment to support the band through volunteering.
Our new volunteer point system is designed to increase parent involvement, promote fairness and spread volunteer duties throughout the band program. Each volunteer opportunity has points attributed to the task. The points are calculated based on time, effort, and experience required for the task.
Marching Band Point Requirement = 20 (at least 2 by student), Payout in lieu of volunteering = $100
Winter groups (indoor percussion, winter guard) = 10, Payout in lieu of volunteering = $50
Families have until the end of the third month of the season to earn their points, after which the balance of incomplete points will be charged against their account.
