How To Become A Volunteer
So you think you want to be a volunteer…. It’s a great way to stay involved with your students; get to know your students’ friends; and meet new friends yourself!! We call those friends our BBFs (Best Band Friends!)
If you have been volunteering with the Band – Welcome to another Year!
We need volunteers to help in the following areas: Chaperones Concessions and Grills Equipment (Loading and unloading the trailers) Fundraising Uniforms (sewing is just a part of it!) And lots of little things that come up during the year! You can help a little – or you can help a LOT! We need you! You know the saying “It takes a village . . . “? – well in our case – it takes a small metropolis!!
To ensure safety for all students, please follow the directions below to become an Approved Volunteer or Renew your volunteer status. You must be a Duval County approved volunteer in order to chaperone, volunteer or visit your child’s classroom and even to eat lunch with your child. Please help us keep our campus and all children safe!
