HOW CAN PARENTS GET INVOLVED?
Help organize and direct students during practices, competitions, football games, parades, fundraising events, and other performances. Duties include providing water and snacks, providing bandages or ice as needed, monitoring an assigned group, and helping keep students safe. This is a great way to spend time with students, see them in action! Chaperones must have current Volunteer Registration Clearance on file with RCS.
WAYS AND MEANS TEAM
The Hospitality group plans and coordinates meals for staff for Band Camp and Saturday practices as well as Friday night pizza dinners for the band students before home games. Throughout the year, this committee coordinates requests for donations for refreshments and provides set-up and clean-up for the performance and concerts. Funds are continually needed to manage long-term costs associated with the band that is not covered by Fair Share payments. This group plans and coordinates community fundraisers such as Spirit Nights and car washes, concessions at games. Lastly, we plan Senior Week activities in the Fall and Spring and hosts the end-of-year Band Banquet.
It takes a dedicated team to transition 40+ teenagers from T-shirts and shorts to show-ready uniforms for competitions and football games! This group consists of parents and friends of the band that help with getting the students properly sized for their uniforms, dressed at competitions and events, as well as keeping the uniforms clean and organized during the season. This is a great way to spend time with students, see the show up close and personal, and bond with others who have an interest in the band.
The pit crew assists students of the Front Ensemble and the Prop Committee in moving instruments, podiums, and props to and from the field at competitions and football games. The pit crew also coordinates the trucks/semi-trailer at away competitions supervise and assist students with loading and unloading before and after each trip.
The Band runs a concession stand at every home football game. We need a team of people to run this stand every season. Please contact our concession stand committee chair Tina Brown at 336-254-3551 if you would like to help us serve food at Football games. Thank you in advance for your service to our community!
