Needed at Most Events

Chaperons are needed for most events. It is very important to have at lease one parent available to help out in the event that the teacher needs help when at an event. There are times when a parent needs to stay with students when a director needs to take care of a problem, meet with judges, or any number of other things.

EXAMPLE: All winter guard shows need a chaperon as Mr. Jackson typically takes the floor and cart in his truck. The parent needs to ride the bus and check the students in at the show if the truck has not arrived in time.

Sign up to be a chaperon by clicking on the multicolored hand next to the event.
