Band-a-RAMa - Thank you!!

Thank you to the many volunteers who came out and worked at Band-a-RAMa on Saturday 10/15.  This was the largest and most successful show we have hosted in the last 10 years.  We couldn't have pulled off a show of this magnitude without all of the great volunteers. Once again, thank you.

Fall R&K Sub Sale - Pick-up Tuesday, October 25

Volunteer Opportunities - Football Games

The next few weeks are a busy time for the CD Ram Bands with Tuesday night rehearsals, weekly football games and Tournament of Band (TOB) Shows.  It is a busy time for the Band Booster Associaion as well  providing staffing for the vistor's side concessions stand at Landis Field for home football games, chaperoning both home & away games.

To make these events run smoothly, we need VOLUNTEERS.  Most volunteer opportunities are approximately 3 hours in length.  Your help covering one of these shifts is needed & greatly appreciated.  The saying, "many hands make light work,"  is the cornerstone of a successful event.

Volunteer opportunities for home football games are listed in Charms under the 'Volunteers' tab.  You must login to Charms to sign up for a shift.  If you are unable to login into Charms or have a question regarding a volunteer opportuntiy, please contact Michelle Chambers at vicepres1@cdramband.org.

If you are interested in chaperoning, please contact Holly Zieber at financesec@cdramband.org.

Volunteer Background Check Information

Many of you may already be aware from attending meetings that the District has a new policy on Volunteers, effective July 1st of this year. This is a new State regulation, and is only being enforced by the District. 

Starting July 1st, ALL adults who have consistent contact with students will need to have all three clearances on file with the district.  This includes the Criminal Background Check, Child Abuse Check and FBI Fingerprints.  Effective July 25, 2015, Governor Wolf has waived the fee for the Criminal Background Check and Child Abuse Check.  You may sign an affidavit form to be exempt from the FBI clearance if you have lived in Pennsylvanin for more than 10 years.  Once you have obtained the necessary paperwork, you must schedule an appointment at the Administration building (717)545-4703.
