Chaperones are needed throughout the year to help at football games, band shows, contests, spring trip, band camp and 8th grade night. This is an opportunity for us to get to know each of the band members and to help the directors. It’s a lot of work, but it’s also a lot of fun!
Football games and band shows:
Chaperones will report to the high school about 45 minutes to an hour before the buses depart. During that time, we will go over bus assignments and at-the-field duties.
Chaperones will take attendance for their bus and will ride the bus to and from the stadium.
While at the stadium, chaps will help in unloading the trailers and getting equipment into the stadium and out onto the field during halftime or during a band show and off and back onto the trailers. Chaps are also responsible for escorting band members to and from the restrooms during the game and for making sure that all school/band rules are followed. We also help with clean-up in the stands and any other duties that help Mr. Hadgis and the band.
Chaperones will take attendance for their bus and will ride the bus to and from the contest. While there, chaperones will stay with the band until they go out to perform. Other duties will be assisting with setup if needed and walking band members to and from the restrooms.
8th grade night:
This is a night for us to watch and even participate in the night’s activities and to encourage the 8th graders to become a part of the high school band.
Spring trips and Band Camp:
Both of these events involve over night commitments. Overnight spring trips will involve being on a bus for the trip as well as being in charge of a certain number of band members while away. Responsibilities vary based on the location of the trip. Band camp will involve being in charge of a floor wing, waking up students, making sure that they are where they need to be, bed checks and helping with water breaks and restroom breaks during rehearsals at the field. This can either be a full week or a half week commitment by each chaperone. Sometimes during this week, you will ask yourself “Sleep, what’s sleep?”.
If you have questions concerning chaperoning or want to sign up to chaperone please contact either Sandy Hutchinson at email@example.com or (330)814-0230, or John Hutchinson at firstname.lastname@example.org or (330)714-2531 (we both accept texts).
