This training is short (approximately 45 minutes), and then one can get their fingerprints taken sometime afterwards on Wednesdays from 9:30 am to 4:00 pm. In order to attend this training, one has to complete and submit the attached form: https://www.volgistics.com/ex/portal.dll/ap?AP=2106446739. Once the forms have been submitted, the training and fingerprints completed, you will be eligible to assist in parent/student band activities, such as chaperoning, etc. The SMEast Band Booster really needs parents to participate and assist in the various activities. Having completed the MVP Training allows one to really get involved in supporting their students and the band. Thank you.
