Here is a special message from one of our feeder school band program, Woodland Middle School. The Woodland Middle School Music Department is hosting a special event next weekend, March 11th & 12th, and are requesting additional assistance from alumni and friends. Thanks in advance for helping Woodland and many of our future Warren band students.

Dear Band and Choir Families,
The Woodland Middle School Music Department is hosting the first ever Northern Illinois Music Conference Organization Contest this year on March 11th & 12th. This contest allows bands/choirs/orchestras from Northern Illinois to perform for judges who are professional music educators. These judges will give valuable feed back to the performing groups. These performances are open to the public. We invite you all to attend, not only to hear/cheer on the wonderful WMS groups, but other groups from the area as well.
Hosting contest is a pretty big deal! In order for contest to run smoothly and for WMS to provide an excellent experience for our guests, we are going to need a lot of help from our wonderful parents, students, siblings, former students and staff members. Any help that you could give would be greatly appreciated. Most shifts are 2.5 hours long. There are brief descriptions of each job on the online form. If you would like to help for longer, and want to keep the same job for multiple times, you must sign up for each time slot. Please consider giving a little of your time to help us out. To sign up to help, please click the following link: http://www.signupgenius.com/go/30e0b44ada929abf85-contest
A paper version of this form will be coming home with students before the end of the week. If you would prefer to sign up that way rather than online, please fill out the form and return it to your director.
Anyone age 18 or older who helps must fill out the following form and have it turned in to a director. Please click here to access the link: https://docs.google.com/a/dist50.net/document/d/1Q6LGUU-v97OcjMqmD21lMvku5sToMiK4IejHEYfXp2w/edit?usp=sharing
DISCLAIMER: If we find that volunteers are needed in an area other than what you have signed-up for, we might have to move you to meet those needs.
If you have any questions about volunteering for this event please send an email firstname.lastname@example.org. Someone will get back to you as soon as possible.
