Word just came in. Our delivery is scheduled for one week from today, Tuesday, December 12th!
Cookie dough will be available immediately after school until 6pm.
It is important that all orders are picked up no later than 6pm. Please make arrangements now to have your cookie dough/food orders picked up so volunteers and teachers do not have to call to track people down as this scenario has often happened in the past. We will do all we can to have the order complete by 2:58 pm (in case the order is small enough for your child to take on the bus) but there is no guarantee this can happen as it depends on the truck delivery being on time, the number of volunteers we have, etc. However, orders are being delivered and are pre-packaged by students’ names so this will save time.
This is a good transition to my next topic. We are in need of volunteers to help sort all of the orders and help with distribution to families. We are also looking for volunteers to take shifts with the distribution of the cookie dough to students and parents. We need several people for this task so lines do not get backed up. The contents of each order will need to be carefully checked and then each parent/child will need to sign for their order upon receipt of their cookie dough.
As Uncle Sam would say, “We need you!” 🙂
We are looking for several volunteers for each shift. Here are the time frames needed for volunteers:
Shift 1 = 1:30-3:15pm (organizing)
Shift 2 = 3:00-4:45pm (distribution and sign-out)
Shift 3 = 4:30-6pm (distribution and sign-out)
Yes, there are 15 minute overlaps to help train volunteers for the next shift. However, if volunteers wish to do more than one shift you may feel free to do so. In a perfect world, we would love a few volunteers from the Shift 1 to also help in the beginnings of Shift 2 to help keep the transition flowing smoothly.
If we can get around 15 volunteers we will be in great shape. Our parents and extended band family have always done a great job helping our students and please consider this most needed volunteer opportunity as a special way to help our kids. If you are willing and able to help, please contact Aleasha Peck at firstname.lastname@example.org to sign up. MANY thanks in advance!
Also, if NJHS students would like volunteer hours by helping people with getting the cookie dough from the Auditeria to their car, this may be an ideal opportunity for you. Students, see Mr. Whitlock if you are interested.
Many thanks for your consideration of our great need!
Mr. Marc Whitlock
