There are many good reasons for parents to volunteer for the Band. It’s a great way to show your kids that you take an interest intheir education, and it sends a positive message that you consider Band a worthwhile cause.
Parent volunteers offer a huge resource and support base for the Band and the school community while showing their kids theimportance of participating in the larger community.
Not only will the Band reap the benefits of your involvement — you will too. By interacting with Mr. Whitlock and other parents on a regular basis, you’ll gain a firsthand understanding of your child’s daily activities. You’ll also tap into trends and fads of school lifethat can help you communicate with your kids as they grow and change (all without intruding on their privacy or personal space).
Even if you haven’t been involved in the past, it’s never too late to start. It may be more important than ever to get involved when kids reach middle school.
Our middle school band does not have a booster program per PCCS district policy, but if you have the desire and time we do need band parent volunteers who assist the students and director in various tasks. Some areas of need are:
- Fundraising tabulation and collection
- Computer data entry
- Check deposit computer entry
- News and public relations
- Website management and design
- Music Library management
…and many other tasks!
Parent volunteers must fill out the PCCS district volunteer criminal background check form and be approved by the school district.The form is part of this handbook. Please go to this link to fill out the form:
