Donut Run
At the end of August the OEXC Coaching staff puts on a mock meet at Olathe East. Parent volunteers provide a snack table full of donuts, bagels, fruit and beverages for the runners to enjoy after the meet. Parents are encouraged to attend and bring your cameras to capture memories of all the wacky “uniforms” that each team comes up with.
Spaghetti Dinners
Each week during the season we will have a spaghetti dinner for the entire team. One family will volunteer to Host at their home, and we will ask for 5 other families to volunteer to provide the necessary food items. This is a great opportunity for the runners to strengthen their friendships with teammates, as well as filling their bodies with the carbs needed for the race the following day!
Snack Tables
At each meet, a group of parents are asked to provide a healthy selection of snacks for the runners including: oranges, granola bars and PB&J sandwiches.
Motivational Gift Committee
Responsible for the motivational gifts that are given to the runners before each meet (handed out at the spaghetti dinners). The committee will meet 3-4 times during the season to select/make/assemble the motivational gifts and discuss OEXC Booster Club Scholarships.
Banquet Committee
Responsible for the end of season banquet including: ordering food, decorating, serving, senior posters, picture placemats, coaches gifts, cake table, RSVP and clean-up. The planning committee will meet as needed before the end of year banquet.
Digital Picture Taking / Button Making / Photo Sheets
Responsible for taking digital pictures of each runner and coaches, setting up the pictures to be printed for buttons and photo sheets, going up to the District Offices to make the parent buttons and laminated photo sheets, organizing packets to be handed out at the first meet.
Bus Decorating Committee
Responsible for developing themes and decorating buses for the Sunflower League and State Meets.
Host of the OE Class Classic
Responsible for assisting the coaching staff with the OE Class Classic including: directing parking of cars and buses (before the event), concession stand, working the chute and helping mow grass.
