Sign-up Genius Set Up for Citrus Distribution Help

February 25, 2014 Leave a comment

Mrs. Fraccaroli has set up an online system for signing up to help with distribution. You can find it here.

Here are the instructions she posted on that site:

This signup is to organize the signups for the Warrior Wrestlers to help with distributing at the Kiwanis/Wresting Citrus fundraiser.

Wrestlers Remember–this fundraiser is helping YOU to earn the money for a new mat, which will benefit the whole team for years to come! Please lend a hand!

If a slot doesn’t show a number of volunteers needed, it means just one is needed for the slot. If two boys want to sign up together for one of these slots to make it more fun, that’s fine too, just add the other name to the comments field…the more the merrier!

Congratulations for helping yourselves achieve this goal!

The Citrus sale benefits the wrestlers.  Take advantage of the opportunity to help your team-mates, and the wrestlers who will follow you as they come up from the Youth Program.

First — Keep selling!  The sale (and the contest) won’t be over until the 28th.  Get your completed orders to Ace Sakamoto in school, and Mrs. Sakamoto will take care of getting them turned in.  

Second – Kiwanis will also need help during the distribution of the fruit when it arrives in March.  Here’s what we know now:

Friday 3/14 after school till 5pm – two wrestlers 

Saturday 3/15 morning 9 till 1 — three wrestlers

Saturday 3/15 afternoon 1 till 5 — three
wrestlers – one each for use at the Y and Splash, plus one
at ECS

Sunday 3/16 noon

Please email Mr. Reedy – – if you can help out in one or more of the time-slots.  We may have other sign-up systems as well, but we need firm commitments at least a week before the fruit arrives.
