A big thank you to those of you who already signed up to help as class attendants, garment attendants, and refreshment helpers at our Student Concert last Monday! Praise His Name With Dancing could not continue without the generous assistance of parents. Every family's help is needed to in order to ensure the safety of the children and the smooth flow of the performances and the reception on Sunday afternoon. We are hoping to hear from the rest of you soon.
It would be most appreciated if you could take care of this important detail early so we don't need to have to be concerned about it at the last minute or have to make follow-up phone calls. Please see the Garment & Class Attendant and Refreshments Helpers Charts at http://phnwd.tripod.com/id27.html to see where there are still openings, then contact our web master, Mary Wagner, at firstname.lastname@example.org to let us know when you can serve. The sooner you sign up, the more likely you are to get the day or time you prefer.
As was explained on the "Volunteering" form that all families received at the beginning of the year, "each family is responsible to provide one parent or a responsible person to be available for both of the June rehearsals and one of the June Celebrations."
Class Attendant Duties:
The children's safety and care are the heart of this ministry. You need to come to both rehearsals for training, and one Celebration (Saturday or Sunday). Duties include sitting with students, taking them for costuming, and bringing games and things for them to do while waiting.
In addition, we need a garment one Garment Attendant mom per class. It is such an important part of the presentations.
Garment Attendant Duties:
Taking inventory of your classes costumes.
Taking costumes home after picture day in May.
Friday's dress rehearsal - bring costumes, check after celebration for inventory, etc.
Saturday - check after celebration for inventory, etc.
Sunday - gather costumes, take home
Launder costumes and give them back to me within the month.
Finally, parents are also needed to serve refreshments to our guests after the Sunday celebration. Parents of older students, whose classes no longer need Class Attendants, are particularly asked to serve by helping in this way.
Thank you for the many ways you support the ministry. We could do nothing without the active participation of so many of you.
In Christ's Love,
