It’s that time of year again. Football season has begun! We have watched our children, football players, and cheerleaders work diligently during their summer break and finally, the wait is over! It’s time to cheer them on as they open the season this Friday with HOCO taking on Perry at Perry for the opening game. We can’t wait to show our support for the Bears and our students!!
Here’s how you can help for the first game as well as throughout the year.
First, before you can volunteer with the band, you must have a valid background check on file. Board of education policy… If you are unsure, please submit a request here so we can help you find out. If you know you need to fill out a new one, it’s attached below. Your student can drop it by the office OR they may also turn it in to the directors.
Request to validate background status: https://forms.gle/kEHGER4h5cccdT9y5
Chaperones: You will be required to ride an assigned bus to the game and home from the game. Your primary role will be ensuring the safety of our students for the entire length of the event. Don’t worry, disciplinary actions (which are rare) will be handled by staff, you’re there for the fun stuff!! Sign up here (slots are limited and fill fast!) https://www.charmsoffice.com/charms/volunteerR.asp?v=4731968
Transportation/Media/3rd Quarter Meals/Uniform and Medical Volunteers; use this link to sign up. Everyone MUST sign up so I can validate background checks and add you to the gate list. https://forms.gle/1KgWTAAwj9zJYarR9
Concession Stand: https://hocoband.org/calendar/ find a date and use the hand to sign up. Every family needs to plan to volunteer at least one game this season. If we can make that happen, no family would need to work twice. The funds raised in the concession stand are the core of how this band runs. Please, please, please find a home game and help! You may work either side, doing nearly anything you’re comfortable with. Did I say Please already? 😊 Please!
You may also use our google form to sign up for concessions.
