Summer band camp is approaching (August 4 – August 8), and the students need some volunteers to help serve dinner after they’ve been practicing all day. On Friday, there’s a picnic for the families of all music students—not just the marching band. After the picnic, stay to watch the first public performance of this year’s marching competition piece.
We’re using VolunteerSpot.com not only to track volunteers, but also to get an idea of how many people will attend the picnic.

To prepare for the new school year, the students must be fitted for uniforms and tuxes or dresses. Since there are over 120 members of the marching band and orchestra, we need some parent volunteers to help out during band camp (Monday, August 4 through Wednesday, August 6) and orchestra camp (Monday, August 11 through Thursday, August 14)
Tasks include helping students try on uniforms and dress clothes to ensure they’re not too tight and they’re the correct length. With so many students, we need a few volunteers every day for each type of fitting. We could also really use your help if you can do minor sewing, such as hemming and sewing snaps back onto uniforms and maybe some tacking. (You can even take the work home, if you prefer.)
Please go to the Volunteer page, scroll down to the Uniform Fittings activity and click “Sign up” or click one of these links: Band Fittings or Orchestra Fittings. This will take you to a list of tasks. Please sign up for as many days as you can. The listed times are when fittings will be done, but you can come and help whenever it’s convenient for you within those hours.
Please contact the Volunteer Coordinator if you have any questions.
