Hello 5th grade parents,
We have an exciting opportunity for your children to increase their fitness on May 7, 2019 in the afternoon. The Chicago Bears would like to host a Mini Monster Clinic at Dryden. To host the clinic I need:
- 7 more adult volunteers (not teachers whose students are participating) who are able to help us run drills for the students. Volunteers must be there 30 minutes BEFORE the clinic begins. Their staff will run through the drills with you.
- You would have to be at Dryden by 1:00PM as the clinic begins at 1:30PM, it will end at 3:00PM.
- If you would like to volunteer please send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org by April 30, 2019.
- If I receive more than 12 volunteers I will pull names from a hat.
- If you have any questions please let me know.
Please sign them & return to me ASAP. If a student does not have a signed waiver he/she will not be able to participate.
