The Naugatuck High School Band Parent Association needs your help.  There are many different areas that we could use your help in.  You don't have to volunteer for everything or all the time we know your time is valuable as is ours - we will gladly take your help whenever you can give it.
 

Brief Descriptions of Jobs:

Band Camp                Band Camp parents help out in a variety of ways. Their jobs include, but are not limited to serving snacks, minor medical treatments, uniform fittings, supervising lunch hour, making copies, etc.

Flag Sewing                No sewing experience is required! We need people to cut and pin fabric in addition to needing people with sewing experience.

Pit Crew                      Adults are needed to “love” and move the pit equipment to and from the fields during rehearsals and competitions. You must actively participate at rehearsals in order to help out at the competitions.

Chaperone                  We need a few parents to accompany the students to the competitions. This is a highly sought after job and the band director has the final say on which parents chaperone each event.

Spectator Group           Our spectators are the best! It is so much more fun and exciting to go to the competitions in a group and sit together and show the band your ‘love’. Please let us know if you are interested in joining us and meeting new people.

Hot Chocolate              Parents prepare and serve delicious hot chocolate and snacks to the slightly frost bitten marchers on cold rehearsal nights. DONATE SNACKS/BAKED GOODS.

Nominating Comm.         In the spring, the executive board needs to recruit new members for the upcoming year.

Mem. Day Parades        Parents are needed to accompany the students along the parade route and provide them with lots and lots of water.

Thunder in the Valley   Thunder in the Valley is our biggest fundraiser. Help is needed in all aspects of this event from putting the ad book together, organizing the day, shopping for food, picking up flowers, etc. The list is too long to include here.

Color of Thunder         For our inside percussion and color guard show, people are needed that Friday evening and Saturday to get the entire school ready. Signs need to be posted, the gyms need special flooring, concessions needs to be organized, etc. Everyone’s help is expected the day of Color of Thunder whether your child participates in winter color guard/percussion.  The profit supports the marching program as well.
