How Can I Help?

Volunteers are needed throughout the year and fill many needs:

– Moving Equipment
– Fixing Equipment
– Maintaining Uniforms
– Chaperoning Students 
– Serving Food
– Audio & Video Recording
– And Everything in between! 

Marching band can be a rather large undertaking and requires the most amount of volunteer support. The remainder of the year the needs tend to be less, but we will still need your help!   

When volunteer opportunities come up, an official volunteer signup request will be sent out via Cuttime. Specific jobs will be listed so you can sign up wherever you feel you can be the most help.

Please make sure you are signed up for Cuttime and Slack as these are the primary methods of communications for the program. 



Cuttime is the DVHS Instrumental Music Program management program. Cuttime is used for:

–  Official communications with Parents & Students
– Sharing details about Events and Concerts. 
– Volunteer requests and sign-ups
– Track Student Fees
– Weekly Directors Notes

* Registration in Cuttime is required for Students & Parents of ALL DVHS Instrumental Music Programs.


Slack is the official group messaging application used for real-time communications within Instrumental Music Program. 

Slack is comprised of several groups that you will find extremely useful throughout your band life. 

You can find Slack in the App Store or Google Play.

*Slack is required for Students & Parents of ALL DVHS Instrumental Music Programs.

All New & Returning Volunteers

Please complete the required paperwork per the district and DVHS Administration.

New paperwork must be submitted for each year that you participate.
