Band Craft Fair and Matador Market: November 12, 2022, and Spring 2023
Assist with the Band Craft Fair in the fall and the Matador Market in the Spring. These two events are the LARGEST and MOST IMPORTANT FUNDRAISERS OF THE YEAR, and both require a lot of student and adult volunteers.
There are some pre craft fair and market tasks on the days prior. On the day of events, volunteers help set-up and tear down the craft fair, organize students and assist vendors.
It’s a great time bonding with other parents, students, and our vendors.
**Committee heads are graduating this year. Individuals are needed to shadow this year, learn the ropes, and take over next year. These events are very organized and many hands help.

Pageant of Bands (POB) October 22, 2022
Volunteer the day of POB to fill the required quota of volunteers for the Band Boosters to receive payment for our time throughout the year. Sandia’s POB representatives attend meetings 10 months out of the year and need the support of volunteers the day of the pageant. Duties are assigned the day of the pageant. Shifts are a few hours and volunteer times are scheduled so that they will not interfere with watching our band perform.
** At the end of the season, we will be looking for new liaisons to take over for the current POB representatives. We have a lot of fun and with multiple people we can divide and conquer for the monthly meetings (one of us goes to the meeting on a rotating schedule). Sandia High School Liaisons are responsible for running the tickets booth on the day of POB.
