Members will be an example of the code of conduct the Spartan Band follows in uniform. Help load and unload uniforms from the busses during trips when necessary. Members will help organize uniforms at the end and beginning of the year at the discretion of the uniform parent.
The team will pick up trash, vacuum carpeted areas if needed, put away any miscellaneous items to either their proper place or the lost items bin, etc. in all used rooms as well as the hallways. This should take about 5-15 minutes if all members participate. Other responsibilities include: Set up/put away band room materials at request of director at the beginning and end of year-Help move chairs and stands between auditorium and band room/other locations if requested.
