GRAD 2017
Dry Grad – Volunteers

MySignUp is now ready for parents/guardians/family to sign up for the various volunteer duties that need filling on the day of, and the night of, Dry Grad.  As you will see, we need a lot of volunteers to make this night happen for our Grads, and it is a lot of fun!  Don't worry about "cramping your kid's style" as this takes place in many different rooms and areas, so they will only see you from time to time. 
From the Claremont website, click on 'Parents', then 'All Night Dry Grad', then 'Volunteer', then 'Volunteer Signup'.  That takes you to MySignUp where you can check out the different jobs and times, then click on 'Volunteer Needed' for the job you want to do, and fill in your contact info.  You can sign up for more than one job if the times don't overlap, and you can encourage a friend to volunteer with you!
