ATTENTION 5TH GRADE PARENTS – SOCK HOP VOLUNTEERS

We are in need of parent volunteers to help with supervising at the Sock Hop on March 29th from 6:00 – 8:00 p.m. The 5th graders are completely responsible for running the dance again this year as the money raised will be spent on them to take a couple of unique field trips later this year.

 

Fifth graders will take money at the admission table, sell food items at the concession stand and sell the glow necklaces at a different table. Multiple parents are needed at each location to supervise and help with the flow of customers and the money transactions. Multiple parents are also needed for supervision in the gym during the dance itself.

 

If your child wants to work the dance, please let Mr. Douglas know which shift and he will assign them to a specific location when the date gets closer. They can sign up for any of the following time slots:

5:45-6:30 p.m.

6:30-7:00 p.m.

7:00-7:30 p.m.

7:30-8:00 p.m.
