Looking For Help! 

CAN-YOU-HELP

We are looking for either parents or students who have a passion and opportunity to assist with our website maintenance. This useful program resource has provided a great centralized location to house important information for our band and we would like to expand our team who can assist with maintenance, updates, and design. Basic maintenance involves nothing more than simple Word Document skills and the design is based on the WordPress platform. WordPress is web-based and does not require any special programs, etc., beyond a basic web browser. If interested, please contact Mr. Langford (apopkabands@gmail.com) to set up a time to discuss the possibility and availability to assist in this area.

Leaving a reply will not guarantee a reply from the webmaster. Please e-mail apopkabands@gmail.com for more information.
