"Call When Needed Volunteers" & Lollipop Sales Volunteers

We have removed our "General Volunteer" group, because when we request volunteers we send out an email to all our families. However, we have noticed lately that there are times that either the Boosters or the Band Directors need something accomplished at the last minute. We are now creating a "Call When Needed" list so we can send out a volunteer request with a 24 - 48 hour notice. Also, we are starting to schedule volunteers to help with Lollipop sales in the Cario Cafeteria on the 2nd & 4th Thursdays and Fridays during the lunch hours (10:30 am - 1:30 pm). The volunteer sign-up sheets to help with Lollipop sales didn't get entered into our database. If you would like to be added to either of these groups, please send an email to In your email, please specify which group you want to be added to, your first and last name and the name of your student.

6th Grade Uniform

Students will bring home their Cario Bands t-shirts on Friday, October 5th and they can wear them to LCI for free admission.
