Parent Volunteer Opportunities
Lakota West has an extensive number of band activities and we need lots of volunteers! For example, it takes 50 parents to assist at each band competition. This includes help with uniforms, bus chaperones, pit crew, photographers, and more. Click here to view volunteer descriptions. If you have questions or would like to be on the contact list for any of the activities, please email Dawn at email@example.com, or text at 513 478-6332, and you will be contacted by someone in the Upbeat Club. Many of the positions will also use Sign-up Genius to communicate volunteer needs, and fill open slots. Be sure to signup for emails through our website in order to hear about the current volunteer opportunities. You can make a real difference for the students in our program AND make great friends along the way.
Current Volunteer Opportunities:
Bus Chaperones (Upcoming dates included are 9/16, 10/14, 10/28, 11/4)
- The above trips are not overnight. In order to chaperone an overnight band trip, the district requires a FBI/BCI background check. It is valid for 5 years. The LW Upbeat club reimburses you for the cost. Go to the information on the Lakota website for more information and schedule when you can complete the process. It takes place at the Central Office, 5572 Princeton Rd. Any questions – email firstname.lastname@example.org
Pit Crew – contact email@example.com
