DALMAC Fundraiser!

DALMAC is Michigan's annual bicycle camping tour with routes northward from Michigan State University to Mackinac City during Labor Day weekend (Saturday afternoon, September 3rd and Sunday morning, September 4th). Petoskey High School is the last stop of 5 day bicycle camp tour. This is a Petoskey Bands (Middle School Band and High School Band) fundraiser event where we host bikers for dinner, a place to camp, and breakfast before heading to their final destination. We are in need of volunteers to come in for a two-hour shift in a 28-hour window. (Any students receiving scholarships for camps will need to work this event as part of their scholarship). It’s a fun event to participate in and the bikers enjoy the hospitality of Petoskey residents. Please sign up to help with the SignUp Genius link.  THANK YOU!
 
Note on the signup: We will also be sending out the signup to donate items such as bread, fruit, veggies, etc. for this event, but we wanted to be sure to get this event on your calendars first and focus on the volunteer aspect, as this is where we really need the most help! Thank you again for signing up to help!

Colorguard:

You have been receiving information from Mrs. Marvin.

The expectation is that students are at sectionals. There is a lot of work that goes into preparing for camp. Obviously, we’ll have students that are gone for camps, trips, etc. We understand that’s a part of summertime, too, and we believe that’s a good opportunity for everyone. However, if you are in town, the expectation is the same as any other sports team. Your employers have had other workers with commitments to teams, so this isn’t a new idea to any boss in town. We’ve been personally working with coaches to build a practice/sectional schedule that allows students to participate in both activities.
