Football Game Chaperone SignUpGenius
Marching Ensemble families, help out and get in to the games for free! We need help transporting equipment to/from the field, put out seat covers, guide them from the field to the bleachers after the pre-game show, guide them to and from the field for half-time show, get them water after they perform and help guide them off the bleachers after the game.

Pre-Game Dinner Volunteer SignUpGenius
Marching Ensemble families, can you host a pre-game dinner for the Marching Ensemble? It’s a great tradition to ensure our kids are well fed and prepared for the fun evening ahead! The host family provides the main meal, and other parent volunteers help setup/clean up, drive the students to/from your home and bring salads, desserts, etc to accompany your meal. Its best if you live fairly close to the school.

- 5:45 PM – Roll call in the instrumental music room
- 6:00 to 6:30 PM – Band practice. Parent volunteers set up designated marching section in stadium bleachers
- 6:50 PM – Pregame show
- 7:00 PM to end of game – Marching Ensemble performs in stands and half time show.
- End-of-game – Approx. 9:30 PM– Students change out of uniforms and are dismissed around 9:45 pm after a performance debriefing. Parents must plan to be at school before the dismissal time to pick up their student(s).
- After each game (over the weekend) students need to clean their gloves, spats (shoe covers) and polish their shoes. Clean and press the pants as needed. The uniform jackets and other accessories are maintained by the uniform parent team.
Students dress up and perform at elementary schools. More details will be provided once schedules are finalized.
We perform in two Marching Band competitions that Marching students are required to attend. These are full day events, with students arriving at school around 6:00am for roll call and boarding buses and returning in the evening (Time determined based on competition schedule). Bus transportation and lunch is provided. Signups to chaperone these trips will be at the back-to-school BBQ.
