Good Morning Choir Families,

I hope you have all had a restful Thanksgiving break! 

The choir program is always busy, and as a board we are working very hard to make sure you have plenty of opportunities to both fund raise and to participate in a great program!! We both welcome and need you all to get involved more! 

This year has been a challenge to increase our parent volunteer numbers for both fundraising and the Booster Board. We have several volunteer moms doing more than one position on the Board on top of working full time. The positions on the Board do not require a lot of time commitment out of your schedule, but when a few are doing the work of many, it becomes a lot to take on. The Boosters in years past has consisted of at least 10 people, sometimes more...this year we have 6 volunteers between the Board and Committee Chairs. As you can imagine that is a lot of work to make up. We all have families and jobs that demand our time, but the more people we have on the team, the better we can be!

In addition our volunteers for fundraising activities are not where we need them to be for the fundraisers to be successful. The success is not only in funds raised but in fulfilling the commitment the choir has made to the vendors/groups. Eldorado Choir has proven themselves over the years to be a reliable hard working group. That is what has allowed us to offer SO many opportunities. The groups usually give Eldorado first sign up opportunities due to our reputation and volunteer numbers. However because our numbers are the lowest I have ever seen, all the responsibility is falling on the same few parents that are already stretched thin. Eventuality as you all know, this will cause burn out of the volunteers that are picking up the slack. It takes more than a few of the same parents to make this all work. The old saying of it 'takes a village' comes to mind. We need more parents to step up to help!! 

So I am putting out an URGENT CALL to all the parents to volunteer your time!! Unfortunately the responsibility can not continue to fall on the same few volunteers! Just think how successful we could be if everyone committed to add 5 - 10 hours of your time to the choir program? This is an achievable goal, but we need your help to make it all work! 

With all that said... This Tuesday November 28th is the first Basketball game. The choir works concessions during the games. If we do not have volunteers or food donations, we can not fulfill our commitment to the Basketball program. We understand that the choir students have after school rehearsals on this day, so we are requesting parents sign up. There are three different slots available. We need 6 parents, to sign up. The time slots are 1. 3:30 - 5:00, 2. 5:00 - 6:30 and 3. 6:30 - 8:00As of today we do not have anyone signed up for this game. Please click on the link below to sign up!!

All those who have signed up to donate food, PLEASE drop off your donations tomorrow to Mrs. Rossignol's office. We need more food to be donated as well. Please click on the link below to see what else is needed! 

Your help is very important!!
