Volunteers for Spring UIL Event (April 26, 27, 28)

Please take a look at the volunteer needs for the April 26-28 Spring UIL Event at CLHS. We are fortunate that our students don’t have to take a bus to another location and miss most of a day of school. We are also fortunate that our students can learn leadership skills and earn volunteer hours while hosting the event. Parents are needed to help in TWO ways.

First, provide a couple of volunteers in the sight-reading room to “mange the clock” (timer) – you will be trained! There are three shifts: one LONG morning shift and two shorter afternoon shifts. Those who sign up for the LONG morning shift will have lunch provided.

Parents are also needed for hospitality for the judges. There are three shifts: set-up breakfast, set-up lunch, and clean-up. You will be reimbursed same day for your expenses.
