Coordinated by Sophomore Class Rep: Mary Ellen Sobol
Hi- Cheer and Football parents,
We are soon approaching the beginning of the fall season and anticipate an exciting and challenging year for our kids. This year we will be playing some new teams, meeting new friends and reuniting with our Gridiron family. Our kids have worked hard this summer getting stronger and preparing. Let it be a fun and safe season ahead.
In preparation, we need your help to keep the booster barn up and running during the home football games. I have provided the details below to help guide you thru the process.
WHO? Freshmen and Sophomore football & cheer parents. There are 23 families between Cheer (6) and Football (17) in the 2017 pool. This year the roster is smaller than it the past so there are some parent’s names listed twice. This was done fairly by selecting randomly by “pulling from a hat”. I am in the process of coordinating with the athletic department a student volunteer list as well. This may at time eliminate the need for some parents to work at two games however I cannot reply on this at this time. I will do my best to notify you when I have the extra help.
PROCESS Each family in the pool is assigned to one or two of the 5 home games for either the first or second half shift. The assignment is for one adult from the family listed (more is always welcome!)
WHY? WHS Booster Club Funds go towards maintenance of turf fields, payments on Barn and Bleachers. Boosters supports ALL WHS Athletics and Cheerleaders.

All volunteers for first half are expected to report to the barn at 30 minutes prior to game time.
All Volunteers for 2nd half are expected to arrive to the barn when halftime begins so they can relieve the volunteers in the barn. If possible it would be ideal if both groups could overlap at halftime to cover the heavy flow of customers. 2nd half Volunteers are responsible for cleanup.
SCHEDULE CONFLICT? If you are not able to maintain your assigned slot you are responsible for swopping with another family and notifying Mary Ellen Sobol
