Update to Adopt a family

We have the wishlist items fullfilled. If you can help with clothing or shoes, we would greatly appreciate it.

Christmas Adopt-a-family

Good morning band families,

We need your help with our adopted families.  The updated list is below.  Please let us know what you will be getting so we can mark that item off the list.  If you have any questions you can email Melissa at mwilson.gchsharkband@gmail.com or MJ at mjkramer287@gmail.com.  All gifts need to be delivered unwrapped to the band room by Wednesday Dec 9th. 


Also, please look at the website, gchsharkband.com, and go to the volunteer sign up page to help us with concessions.  We have some Basketball concessions that still need volunteers.  The January dates will be added soon, so check often for more opportunities.  Remember…….this is an opportunity to earn money for your child’s band account and to raise money for the band to offset costs and keep band fees lower.  If you have questions about concessions please reach out to mwilson.gchsharkband@gmail.com.

Thank you for all that you do to support your student and the GCHS Shark Band.

Volunteer opportunities are here and we need your help!

We are now able to use volunteers and we need help.  We are running off season concessions for basketball and soccer currently.  These are a great opportunity to earn some money for your student’s account.  Normally we require the students to work with their parents, but we are not able to have the students in the concession stands at this time.  But, how can I earn money for my studnet’s account?  Work your first game as training, then each night after that you will earn $25 per night to add to your students accounts.  To sign up either email me or go to gchsharkband.com and sign up under Volunteer/ volunteer signups.  Dates that we need help with before Christmas are:

Tuesday 12/1 Boys Soccer- need 1 (530- 830pm)

Tuesday 12/1 Girls BBall- need 1 (4pm- 830pm)

Saturday 12/5 Girls BBall Tournament- need 1 (1145am-3pm), need 1 (245pm-6pm)
