Autumn is a busy time for CD RamBand members and their families, so take a break from cooking and support your favorite band! Join us on Wednesday, October 12 from 4:00 - 9:00 PM at Texas Road House on Union Deposoit Road for our fall dine-to-donate event. Texas Road House will donate 10% of your total food purchase to the Band Booster Association. Please give your server a coupon for EACH member of your party.
The next few weeks are a busy time for the CD Ram Bands with Tuesday night rehearsals, weekly football games and Tournament of Band (TOB) Shows. It is a busy time for the Band Booster Associaion as well providing staffing for the vistor's side concessions stand at Landis Field for home football games, chaperoning both home & away games, and planning/staffing our upcoming TOB show, Band-a-RAMa on Saturday, October 15.
To make these events run smoothly, we need VOLUNTEERS. Most volunteer opportunities are approximately 3 hours in length. Your help covering one of these shifts is needed & greatly appreciated. The saying, "many hands make light work," is the cornerstone of a successful event.
Volunteer opportunities for home football games and Band-a-RAMa are listed in Charms under the 'Volunteers' tab. You must login to Charms to sign up for a shift. If you are unable to login into Charms or have a question regarding a volunteer opportuntiy, please contact Michelle Chambers at email@example.com.
If you are interested in chaperoning, please contact Holly Zieber at firstname.lastname@example.org.
The calendar for the 2016 - 2017 school year is set and available on the calendar. Please take a few minutes to review the schedule before planning vacations, college visits etc.
Many of you may already be aware from attending meetings that the District has a new policy on Volunteers, effective July 1st of this year. This is a new State regulation, and is only being enforced by the District.
Starting July 1st, ALL adults who have consistent contact with students will need to have all three clearances on file with the district. This includes the Criminal Background Check, Child Abuse Check and FBI Fingerprints. Effective July 25, 2015, Governor Wolf has waived the fee for the Criminal Background Check and Child Abuse Check. You may sign an affidavit form to be exempt from the FBI clearance if you have lived in Pennsylvanin for more than 10 years. Once you have obtained the necessary paperwork, you must schedule an appointment at the Administration building (717)545-4703.
