Class of 2016 needs a Grad Knight Chairperson-
Grad Knight doesn't happen without parents!

Grad Knight Chair role:
Go to the Grad Knight event the year before (2015) as a chaperone so you know what to expect.
Assemble and recruit committee
Budget for event
Meet with event planners and decide on one
Ticket sales at Back to School Days
Find parents to run fundraisers
1. Newport Shores Garage Sale
2. Newport Shores Holiday Brunch
3. Poinsettia and wreath sales
4. Seahawk merchandise sales at home games
Focus on fundraising through December
January work more closely with specifics for events, choose venues, more clarity for budget with fundraisers over
Bus sign ups, finalize activity schedule, permission slips, volunteers for chaperones and training, ticket sales

What I like about role?
Getting to know and working with other parents! I would highly recommend a co-chair for the help, and to bounce ideas off of. I’ve done things I would not have experienced without being on committee: meeting new people, chaperone Grad Knight event, run the Seahawk fundraisers (find a volunteer for next year if it is still available), realize skills you have, talk to a lot of the seniors. It’s really the last chance to volunteer for your kid and their friends. Marie O.
