Parent chaperones are needed for all football games (home and away) and any marching contest or UIL events that the Band attends. Duties are very simple: we check students on and off the buses, help carry equipment and such from the buses to the field, and are generally available to help with other tasks as needed.
We greatly prefer that you ride the buses for away games or marching contests, as we must have chaperones on each bus (there is also a Band Director on each bus). However, if you want to help at a game or contest and absolutely can not ride the bus, you may either drive yourself or ride with the trailer-pulling crew.
You will stay with the band in the bleachers during the entire event. If it is a full-day marching contest, you also stay with the band when they go to eat, etc. Chaperoning is a great way to get to know some of our wonderful band students and you really feel a part of the event and our band. For more information or to volunteer, please contact our VP of Chaperones.
