1. ALLIANCE AIRSHOW HELP NEEDED:  Alliance Airshow is coming up, and WE NEED YOU!  The airshow is October 28-29, and we need about 30 volunteers each day from 8a-5p to staff our two concession booths.  Provided we are fully staffed, volunteers generally have time to enjoy the airshow when it is slow, and this is a great opportunity to train on the systems used at Colonial in the spring!  Please follow the link below to sign up for a shift.  If you have any questions, please email Mr. Torres at ftorres@aisd.net.

4. TRIP CONTRACT & DEPOSIT:  did you have a busy week and forget to turn in your New Orleans trip contract and deposit?!?  Turn it in to Mr. Goins on Tuesday, and we’ll still take it!  This is going to be an awesome trip; don’t miss out!!!  Other specific arrangements made with Mr. Goins are still valid.
