We will be posting our SOA calendar for the year shortly which will include all our events, concerts and activities in one place for easy reference. We will also periodically post contact information for easy sign-ups as parents wish to help with volunteer based activities.
In the meantime, we do need help with the following positions!
POSITIONS AVAILABLE FOR IMMEDIATE FILL:
1) Photographer--- we will need a parent to attend each concert and contest activity and take photographs for our yearbook pages! Also, parents are welcome to attend a regular class as they are able to take candid shots of our students hard at work. Please email firstname.lastname@example.org if you can take on this position.
2) Concert Video Recorder- we need a parents willing to record our concert performances and post videos to YouTube (I have a Boro Strings channel) so our students can view themselves playing to not only celebrate achievement, but also reflect on their hard work and set goals for next concert. Please contact me if you can do this at email@example.com
3) Officer Apprentice Positions-- several of our current SOA officers have students who are seniors and will be leaving us at the end of this school year. We need parents willing to shadow them and learn the ropes, hopefully to take over the following year if elected. Please contact me if you are interested in doing this at firstname.lastname@example.org
Our first SOA meeting for the 2016-17 year took place August 3, 7pm at the home of Emily Layton. We discussed our calendar of events for the year (our SOA meeting schedule, concerts, contests, social events and preliminary fundraising dates). We also discussed some update edits to our SOA bylaws and do a first read on our budget. Meeting minutes will be posted soon.
As always, we would love to have your input. Please feel free to join any future SOA meetings. Meetings will usually take place the second Tuesday of each month, 7pm at the JH in the instrumental music room.
