Volunteer Signups – Dotting the Field

July 6, 2017

Thank you so much to all of our volunteers that helped with the 4th of July Parade!  It was a great help to have everybody walking with the band providing water and handing out Gingerbread Cottage Flyers.

It’s hard to believe but pre-camp week is only 2 and half weeks away.  Emails regarding band camp and activities will start coming out in about a week and a half.  One reminder — if your student doesn’t have a sports physical, please get that scheduled ASAP.  The form to be filled out is at http://test-wp.westervillesouthband.org/wp-content/uploads/Forms/ppe_2016-17.pdf You will need to turn this form at registration on the Sunday of Band Camp (7/30)

To get ready for camp, we need to get the practice field ready!  Which brings us to our next volunteer activity:

Help dotting the practice field on Saturday 7/22/16 10 AM to Noon:The students learn drill by using a grid system.  We “dot” the practice field to provide a visual indicator for this grid system.  It only takes a couple hours.  There will be upper class parents there to show you how to dot.  If the weather forecast is bad we will reschedule it for Sunday (7/23) afternoon at 2 PM.

This is a quick activity and a great chance to meet a few other parents in a very relaxed atmosphere.  Plus you get to see the practice field 🙂  Thanks in advance for helping our students!

Also, If you haven’t signed up yet, please look at our volunteer team opportunities for the upcoming season at http://www.signupgenius.com/go/10c054dacab22a4f94-volunteer2 There are still a number of prime spots left for the uniform team, the banquet committee, the scholarship committee, uniform washing, and help with the candy bar sale.  These are all fun ways to help the band and a number of them (uniform washing, scholarship committee) can be done from home.   We can also use a few more chaperones for pre-camp and camp — http://www.signupgenius.com/go/10c054dacab22a4f94-precamp3  Thanks again for all your help in making our band successful!

 

Volunteer Signups and Description of Band Camp Chaperone Role

June 10, 2017

Thanks to everyone who’s signed up already for a role.  There are still more opportunities to help.

Pre Camp and Band Camp Chaperones — http://www.signupgenius.com/go/10c054dacab22a4f94-precamp3
Band Camp Meal Donations and Servers — http://www.signupgenius.com/go/10c054dacab22a4f94-band5

We could especially use chaperones the week of pre-camp…which brings us to our question
We had a great question asking what chaperones do during camp.  Here’s a short description of the role:

Being chaperone really entails simply being present and helping with anything that might arise.  Bring soccer chairs, because when the band is out on the practice field we ask one or two chaperones to be out with them.  There are usually shady spots to sit.  Tasks include handing out ice packs (we’ll have a cooler there with ziploc bags) if students need one, and making sure water jugs have water and ice.  When the band breaks out in sectionals, parents will sit with the section of their choice (especially the ones practicing outside) to make sure there are no issues with heat, and watch to make sure everyone (staff included) is staying hydrated. Or they can wander between sections in the same role.  Pre-camp, chaperones need to pack a lunch.  The week of band camp, lunch and dinner are provided for chaperones and that’s a time for them to have a break.  There is always one or more staff member with each section, so they have the primary responsibility of monitoring students.  You will be an additional resource if they need something. It’s not strenuous, but it is a commitment of time for those day(s) that you sign up.

If anyone has any other questions about roles, teams, etc. please don’t hesitate to email me because chances are someone else has the same question.  Thanks again for volunteering — it really takes everyone’s help to make a successful season!
