School Dance & Band BBQ

Good evening,

I would like to recap what I went over with our students today in class. Our band is in charge of concessions at the school dance. As we usually have done in the past, I am asking band members to donate certain items for the dance. The band will purchase candy, gatorade, and pizza while the band members will donate sodas and chips. Below are the requirements. Each student knows which of the two categories that they fall into.

Sodas:

(1-2) 12 pack of either Coke, Sprite or Dr. Pepper

(1-2) 2-Liter bottles of Coke, Sprite or Dr. Pepper

Chips: One variety pack of chips of your choice. These chips are the size of chips that you would get as a side at a sandwich shop.

We are aiming to sell these items conveniently at the dance and quickly which is why this size is a perfect size for us.

If you would like to volunteer to work the concession stand or to help with set up/tear down please fill out the form below. 

School dance is April 27th from 6-9. Set up volunteers are asked to show up at 4:30 and tear down volunteers may be asked to stay until 10:00PM. Concessions will show up around 5:00.
