Parent Volunteers needed badly and cookie dough turn-in information

Greetings Band Parents,

Your children and I really need your help. Would any parents have availability to help with the cookie dough order forms and money turn-in on Monday, November 14?   If you could make time, the students and I would be very grateful to you for your assistance. I know that many of you volunteered to help with this when you filled out the parent volunteerism form at the beginning of the year. I will be in touch this weekend with those people but wanted to get the word out to all.

The job is simple yet essential, so the students and I can still have class. We will have students turn in their order forms and money. Parents will make sure each students form and check match and have the same amount. That’s pretty much it! In years past we had to create Excel spreadsheets and the format was time consuming, This new system from Otis Spunkmeyer is easy and time-friendly.

We need at least three parents per shift and a shift is defined by when the class meets. Actually, the shift would probably not last the entire class based on the new system but I want to list the times just to be safe. Here are the class times/shifts:

1st Hour – 8:39- 9:32 (8th grade and largest class)

3rd Hour – 10:33- 11:27 (7th grade)

4th Hour – 12:10- 1:04 (7th grade)

5th Hour – 1:08- 2:02 (6th grade)

6th Hour – 2:06- 3:02 (6th grade)

Won’t you please help us out? Discovery band parents have always come out in droves so I am hoping we can get the volunteers we need to make this work. If any parents can work more than one shift, that would be great as this would add consistency to our procedure from class to class.

I appreciate your consideration of my request, and I look forward to hearing back from you.  Please email me at if you can help our students during these shifts. Thank you so much!

For everyone: All order forms are due with full payment on Monday, November 14. Students turn in the order form and payment during their band class.

It is imperative that we get everything back by Monday, November 14.   If we have any late orders I may need help on Tuesday with a few parents (if available) but it will put stress on us as timelines are major to ensure delivery of the product so we need to mail in the forms and payments on Monday or Tuesday.

Please email me back if you are willing to help and thank you all for participating in our biggest fundraiser of the year!

With warmest gratitude,
Marc Whitlock

p.s. Keep working for ten or more items!  🙂
