Some great news for our volunteers:
Anyone that volunteers for a shift will get into the show for free
Volunteers that work for a total of 6 hours will get to eat for free- anything from the menu!
For alumni parents: Reading performs at approximately 6:55pm- we would love for you to cover a shift that would allow us to run to the field! If you know you are going to be there, but don’t want to sign up for a whole shift- just send me an email. We appreciate any time you can spare!
Marching Band and Color Guard User Fees are now due User Fee and eSchool information. Please get your payment in before Saturday’s event. Stop by the Athletics and Student Activities office if you have any questions.
