Yearbook Coordinators: Opportunities for yearbook:
· Organize page background and photo selection and layout using our TreeRing yearbook account (very easy to learn how to work with)
· Work with students to collect quotes and information such as sports records throughout the year
· Work with students to write descriptions of events
Need volunteers with talent in any of these areas. Very helpful if someone is willing to oversee that each significant school event has a photographer and very brief description about it written soon afterward. This work can be often be done at home. We are trying to build a Yearbook Club for the students but do not yet know of their interest. But the students will need parent volunteers to shepherd the work. Time commitment: 2 or 3 hours per month as needed.
Arts of the Swordsmen (student talent show but with Broadway quality production!): Starting in January, we will need parents who have any of the following talents or know of someone with these talents who can work with our students to develop their artistic expression for Arts of the Swordsmen, which will be performed in late April or May. Talents needed are singing, dancing, instruments, acting, percussion, costumes/wardrobe, drawing/painting (art displays), photography, etc. Contact parent Travis Kiker at firstname.lastname@example.org if you have any questions or can help. And let him know if your son has any artistic talent to showcase!
