Craft Fair Volunteers Needed
We still need quite a few volunteers for our biggest fundraiser of the year! It takes a lot of volunteers to accommodate over 100 vendors, food concessions, event day activities, and our customers. Your participation is critical in making this event a success. Events like our Craft Fair help raise money for our Bands program and help to keep our band fees as low as possible. We need adult volunteers on both Friday, November 22 and Saturday, November 23. You will receive free admission to the craft fair when you volunteer for one or more shifts. Sign-Up for a Volunteer Spot!

Pep Band Try-Outs Coming Soon
The FC Pep Band starts in November and is a great opportunity to play fun music with friends and be part of the action at boy's and girl's basketball games. This activity is open to all band students and is quite inexpensive. You'll be given a jersey with your graduation year on the back. There were 8 games last year that began after Thanksgiving and continued into February. That's only about 2 games per month, a very low time commitment. PIZZA is served at halftime. More information from Mr. Ellinger will be coming soon.
