Patrons League

  • We are growing and we need your help! As you know, each family is required to volunteer at least 6 hours each year. We want to make it as easy as possible for you to find opportunities to do your part. This year, we are using Sign Up Genius to keep volunteer opportunities organized. Please view our webpage and see where you can help! Scroll down to view links to all of our signups. Be sure to look for your grade when signing up for either a JV or Varsity football game this fall. If that date does not work for you and your family, feel free to sign up for another game! If you have any questions throughout the year, please contact us at or for volunteer questions, you can e-mail
  • Mark your calendars for Oct. 26th – we will have Bayou Bash @ Airport Grocery! This will be a fun time for everyone!
