For seasoned Howlers, we'll try to be brief...for new to Tennyson families, check out the Howl page to see what the fuss is about! Also, check your child's bag for an orange notice that is being sent home today.
Let's make this year's Howl the best one yet!
Today: Sign up for a volunteer spot (links to spreadsheets are below). Better yet, sign up your spouse or friend! Won't that be a spooky surprise!
This weekend: Get your costumes ready & start planning your pumpkin carving.
Thursday the 17th: Help out with set-up anytime from 3-9pm. Thursday afternoon and evening set-up sign-up sheet. Come for the entire time or come for an hour, all hands are appreciated. Child minding included, but wine is not, sorry.
Friday the 18th: Help needed before the event to finish setting up classrooms from 3-6pm. Friday afternoon set-up sign-up sheet
Friday night HOWL: Bring your family and enjoy the event! Sign up for a shift to help the event run smoothly...and your kids love to see you in charge! If you don't know what to sign up for maybe pick Friday Night - Howl Night sign-up sheet
Saturday: Clean up! Bring your kids, it's a family affair. (Coffee & snacks included) Saturday break down and clean up sign-up sheet
Extra! Extra! (...help is needed...)
We need a few bossy vampires to do some prep work for the event - Contest Coordinator, Jello Eating, Cake Walk (Cake Walk cake sign-up sheet), Scary Soccer & Room Guarantor. Please sign up as a Room Head on the spreadsheet or email email@example.com if you want more info! (Don't be scared by the empty spaces on the spreadsheet...you will not be alone...we have a large group of high school students also volunteering, but need scary parents to run the show!)
