6) Fall Band Spirit Wear Pickup (This Friday - Oct 21)
The few remaining Fall Band Spirit Wear Sale items will be available for pickup again at this Friday's home football game (last one of year) at the O'Plaine campus during the marching band performance.
7) Craft Fair Volunteers Still Needed (Reminder)
Our Craft Fair on Saturday, October 29th is our biggest fundraiser of the year and we need your help!
Here is the volunteer signup:
There are plenty of options for parents and students alike to help us and have fun doing it. Select a position and shift and add any comments/questions. There are a variety of shifts—you can even work a number of shifts doing something different each shift. If you have no preference, you can choose the “Whatever is Needed” role. Please use this form even if you are only able to bake goods to be sold at the Craft Fair.
There are some shifts that appear to be favorites and fill up quickly. All will be filled on a first come first serve basis, so if you want to volunteer for something with your friends, make sure you sign up sooner rather than later.
If you have any questions regarding the positions or the event itself, please contact Jane Haynes via email at email@example.com.
Go Blue Devils!!
