Owasso Chaperones

Below are the Chaperones for the Owasso, OK contest.

Most selected for this first competition are mostly experienced board members. With it being our first contest I wanted to make sure we had as many experienced chaperones as possible with only a few new parents. I will add a significant number of new parents for the next 2 contests. Thank you for your understanding!

Update: 9/14/18- Chaperone information, Fayetteville away game itin, contest ticket info.

Chaperone Meeting Monday 9/17/18 7pm

For those parents/guardians interested in chaperoning we will be having an informational meeting Monday 9/7/18 @7pm in the orchestra room to review chaperone duties and responsibilities. For those not able to attend we will post the information on the website. I have received questions about how chaperones will be selected. Please see below.

Chaperones for major trips are selected based, in part, upon:

a. Approval by the Director of Bands,

b. Their child must be a band member, in good standing, participating in the specific trip for which chaperones are being selected,

c. Prior satisfactory experience as a volunteer (board member, concessions, prop building, band feeds etc..)

d. Prior satisfactory experience as a chaperone (for example, away football games, home football games)

Concession sign-ups for the season

Below is the link to sign up for concessions for every game we have left. Please note we will need extra help on 10/25 & 10/26 when the band is competing in St. Louis. We still have concessions those nights. For those of you not traveling please invite relatives and junior high families to assist for that game.
