Student Worker Time Changes

Parents, Students, and all Classic Volunteers! IMPORTANT UPDATE ON CLASSIC VOLUNTEER SHIFT SIGN UPS FOR STUDENTS.

The Classic now has a total of 24 total bands. Due to the number of bands, and other morning conflicts with some of these bands, our Lobo Band will now perform 1st at 11 am. These accommodations were made to avoid the Classic from running late into the night or starting too early in the morning.

****DUE TO THIS, NO BAND MEMBERS MAY SIGN UP FOR ANY SLOTS PRIOR TO 12:00 PM **** Please change all sign-ups accordingly and remove yourself from any shift before 12 pm.

The shifts between 3:30 and 6 pm are now open for any band and guard student to sign up for.

Thank you for all of your help and assistance.

Classic on the Lake Volunteer Sign-up

We are asking every band parent to please sign-up to work at least one shift during the Classic on the Lake. This is the single biggest fundraiser for our Lobo Band each year!
