Are you ready for our first football game???? New music parents, welcome. Previous music parents, welcome back!

We are looking for parent volunteers and “Podium Pals” for the first home football game on Friday night. Tasks include setting up the bleachers with seat covers for the band students, escorting the students to the field from the Courtyard, traffic control at two locations, keeping the path in front of the band clear while they play in the stands, crowd control prior to the half-time show, plume distribution, helping to set up podiums for half-time (looking for a few sets of strong shoulders for this and to return the podiums to the school after the half-time show), assist the pit students in getting their equipment onto the field (and off) and assisting with picking up the bleacher covers after the game. There is NO experience required for any of the tasks – we will certainly assist of all of our newcomers. We are always eager to meet our new music parents (and always eager to welcome back our previous music parents).

Please meet Karen Bussell near the band doors at 5:45 p.m. for instructions if you sign up for traffic control and band volunteer. If you sign up for Podium Pal and pit crew volunteer, please report to the practice field (to the left of the football field) after the 2nd quarter of the game for instructions). Bleacher cover volunteers to set up at 5:15 p.m. (If we could get at least one volunteer who has previously covered the bleachers to assist with any newcomers who sign up, that would be awesome!)

If you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to text me at (978) 902-9172 or email me at
