If you’ve ever wondered why you should volunteer, remember: to do all that we do, the Azle High School Drama Boosters rely on our amazing parent volunteers. It would be impossible to support Mrs. Moen and the Drama Department without people like you!
We understand that volunteering may sound intimidating, but there are jobs available for any schedule and commitment level. You can be as involved as you would like to be. Some parents serve on the board, helping to organize different events and guide the Boosters in the best way for the group to effectively serve. Others volunteer to run concession, merchandise or ticket booths during the Fall Show. Some support the Boosters and Drama Department for answering the call and sending needed items for props or concession. You can even try several positions because you never know what’s going to to be best for you until you try it.
Another benefit to volunteering is getting to see you student in a whole new light. The time in high school seems to rush by in blur. First you’re going to freshman orientation and the next thing you know, you’re watching them cross the stage at graduation. During pre-high school years, you student probably encouraged you to be involved. But now, they want their friends to assume that they magically made it to high school without parental guidance.
Volunteering lets you be involved in something that is important to your student without seeming to “parental” (if you know what I mean). They may roll their eyes when you come up to the school, but they’ll soon find that their parent volunteering does not mean you’re standing right behind them, helping them hold the paintbrush while they work on set. You will be busy with your own thing. And whether or not they ever “Thank you”, your student (and the other students) will appreciate your donation to the organization.
