We Need Volunteers!

Chaperones

The band needs chaperones at band camp, after school supervision during the season, and for travel. Click to peruse the typical Chaperone Duties.

Uniform Squad

Works sizing, cleaning, and maintaining the uniforms.  Parents can help out in lots of ways even if they can’t sew!

Pit Crew

A group of helpers who can move equipment, help build props and/or fix things.

OOMPA Board

Ready to help in a larger way?  There is constant need for leadership roles as families graduate and shadowing is the best training method!

Fundraising

The ensemble needs lots of money to run.  We always need fresh ideas and people to coordinate. Annual fundraisers include: restaurant dates, raffles, corporate donations/match gifts, United Way, concessions, and trailer sponsorship.

While a majority of the profit goes to the organization, some proceeds go into individual student accounts to help with music related fees.

Concessions

Through the year we have lots of opportunities to get involved with food service; Melody Tent at football games, BBQ’s, ‘pizza slingers’ and we have concessions for concerts as well as Theater at the Mount.

Additional Info

Volunteer Requirements

Fingerprinting for all volunteers, instructions are on the HR page of AWRSD.org (scroll down about halfway until you see the red fingerprint header).

This is only required once district wide.

Activity Fee

AWRSD now uses “MySchoolBucks” and will email your invoice. If you qualify for free and reduced lunch, the District Fee is waived.

This is separate from the OOMPA fees.

Financial Concerns

Please connect with an executive board member, or the director, to discuss financial assistance needs to help your student participate PRIOR to the fee due dates.

OOMPA’s number one priority is to make sure every student can participate no matter their financial situation.  OOMPA has some scholarship money available and will do everything we can to support students interested in the program.

OOMPA Bylaws

OOMPA’s bylaws were last updated Fall 2020.

Documents & Forms

Student handbook, health forms, safety forms — all the paperwork!
