Dear SMU parents,
Our children have chosen to participate in one of the greatest activities offered to them at Steinert. . . the Marching Unit. This group of students are wonderful young adults who continually represent their school, the music, their families & themselves flawlessly. In return we do our best at SMUPA to provide them with the things they need to fully benefit & experience the program. To accomplish this, we need help. Volunteers are the life blood of this unit and we need you now more than ever. We ask each family to sign up and help out with at least 3 tasks during the year to enable SMUPA to have smooth operations for our children this year and future years to come.
We added a link under our calendar above to VolunteerSpot, which hosts most of the needs for the remaining year. To access VolunteerSpot:
1) Click on the Volunteer Spot icon to see our Sign-ups: 2) Review the Sign-ups listed and choose the three that you like. 3) It's easy to Sign-up, you will NOT need to register an account or remember a password
You will find areas where volunteers are needed during the course of the season and as you can see not every item is on Saturday afternoon.
Please become more active & make new friends. We really do have a great time while we help the marching unit and our children. We would love to hear new ideas, see new faces at our meetings, work and laugh alongside new parents.
With best regards, Kate Nolan ~SMUPA President
