Home Football Game Concessions - Help Needed this Friday!

Volunteer positions are now in Charms for Friday night football concessions. Each family is required to volunteer for two positions during the season. This volunteer requirement is separate from our competition. 

We are also looking for people interested in being a part of the concessions team. If interested, or if you have any questions about concessions, please email Janice Anello at

Concert Uniforms

The Concert Uniform Committee chairs are looking for volunteers to assist with fittings for tux shirts, tuxes and dresses during the school day this week, 7:15 am to 1:30 pm. Any time you can help during the day is appreciated, if you are unable to stay the entire day. 

Sign ups are in charms. If you have any questions, please email

Chaperone Help Needed

Check out Charms for signups for both home and away football games. We have a lot of fun at these games so please join us. A current background check is required to sign up. If you want to become a Chaperone, and we REALLY need you, please contact Jane Johnson at Mason City Schools, (513) 398-0474 ext #20143.

We have lost quite a few Chaperones because they “graduated” with their senior! We are in desperate need of Chaperones who can go on overnight trips like Toledo and Grand Nationals in Indianapolis.

Anyone interested in being a “Chaperone Shadow”, to “learn the ropes”, please contact Jen Grimes at

Reminder: New Process for Typical OTC Medication

We have made an important change for typical OTC medications (acetaminophen and ibuprofen) for our students.These two OTC medications will be provided centrally for any student for whom a completed DMS form is on file. Parents can send the DMS form electronically or drop off to a Band Aid since you no longer need to provide the actual medication. We encourage parents to submit a DMS for one or both of these medications if your student has needed these medications at home. Please help us take the best care of your students and consider what they may need to feel the best throughout the season.

Please Contact Lisa Oldham at with any questions or to submit a DMS for your student to have access to our centrally provided OTC medication. You will find the form on the Mason Bands Website here:
