COMMUNITY ORGANIZATION FUND-RAISERS:

VOLUNTEER OPPORTUNITIES:

TRACK & FIELD EVENTS. Dear Parents, Guardians, and Community Members, Track and Field season is upon us once again. Sherman County High School Track and Field team will be hosting the annual Sherman County Invitational home meet on April 28, 2018 in Moro. Field events will start at 11:00 AM and Track events will begin at 1:00 PM. We are looking for parents, guardians, and community members to help us out once again by volunteering to run events throughout the day. Volunteer duties range from running the clipboard at a field event to measuring competitor’s jumps/throws.

It truly takes a whole community to run a track meet and we are grateful to have such a supporting community. The support from parents and community members in running this meet has been great over the years and we hope to continue the tradition this year. It takes a minimum of 30 volunteers to run our meet smoothly & efficiently. If you are willing to volunteer your time and assist with the meet, please contact the school. The more volunteers we have, the easier/quicker events will go, and we can rotate volunteers out so they can go watch their athletes compete.

Volunteers are needed for these events: Javelin (2-3), Shot Put (2-3), Discus (2-3), Boys Long & Triple Jump (2-3), Girls Long & Triple Jump (2-3), and Pole Vault (3).

As a way to give back and thank our volunteers, I will be ordering each volunteer a Sherman Invitational T-Shirt to wear on the meet day while they are assisting with the events. Please email your shirt size so I can get these ordered ASAP. If you are interested in volunteering your time please contact Audrey Rooney at 541-565-3500 or arooney@sherman.k12.or.us. Please signify the event you are interested in volunteering for and your shirt size. It is my hope to get the T-shirts ordered by April 13th. Thank you in advance for your support,
~Carrie Somnis, Head Track Coach
