Being a chaperone for the CRHS Cougar Band is a fun and rewarding experience. Our mission is to support the band by monitoring the health, safety, and whereabouts of all band students while traveling to and from each event, while students are at an event. Events include football games, contests, parades, trips and other special events. We support our mission in a number of ways: checking students onto buses, supervising them on the buses, providing them with water and basic first aid while in the stands and as they move from location to location at an event, and making sure all students are accounted for and supervised from the minute we leave the school until the minute we return.
Chaperoning can involve some long, tiring, hot/cold/rainy days, and it can be considered hard volunteer work. Unlike watching a performance from the stands, chaperones get a unique behind-the-scenes look at everything the band goes through before and after a performance.
Requirements for Chaperoning, outlined below:
Chaperone Training – mandatory training given each year prior to marching season. There is great detail about what to expect and how to handle various situations that may arise while chaperoning. Guidelines and rules are discussed. Click here for the presentation outline
Each year, all chaperones must sign and turn in a KISD Hold Harmless Agreement.
