Starting this week, we need to have all Chaperones that are traveling with the band to have a Volunteer Application on file with the Band Office. At this time, you WILL NOT need a background check unless it is an overnight stay. However, please do fill out the section where it says the school can look into your background and that all info you have put down is accurate. This is for all chaperones traveling on the buses for games and competitions. You can download the form on our site, fill it out, and bring it with you on your first assignment. You will also need to photocopy your ID and attach it. (You may do that in the band room copier)
New phone system at Steele means new Phone number for the band room after 20 years!
