We need 5 parents who want to find a new way to get involved and become a part of our Corporate team. Team members would report to Mr. Thompson who leads this area of our booster program. The role of each member would be to establish contact with national & local businesses to help generate interest in some of our events and our program. If you are interested please email Chip at TriChip@gmail.com.
Week 2 is in the books and we can't do what we do without the great help of our parent chaperones & roadies! A huge thank you to all of you for committing time to the program this weekend!
On Saturday and today, a group of parents worked together on our prop build for this year's production. A special thank you to Jack Hogan, Chip Eddy, Christina Ellis, Alan Craig, Ken Havens, Brent Bjerken, Rudy and Roxanne Sotelo, Walker Langley, Will Thompson, Michele Clements-Thompson, Jimmy Reyes, Kyle Birkenfeld, Jerry & Michelle Crittenden, James Estrada, Naomy Ybarra, and Earl Amaya!
