Granada Music Parents
The Granada Music Parents is an organization of parent volunteers, created by parents as a non-profit group, dedicated to the support of all band, color guard, orchestra and jazz students at Granada High School. Although the organization operates specifically for the support of the Granada Instrumental Music Program, the group chooses to affiliate itself directly with Granada High School and the Livermore Valley Joint Unified School District and therefore is bound by all rules and policies set forth regarding 'parent volunteers'.
The Music Parents Organization is governed by an elected board of five officers and the Music Director, plus committee chairpersons who serve at the discretion of the board and the Music Director. General membership meetings are held monthly and are open to all music parents. Board meetings are held as needed and are called by the President or the Music Director. A schedule of general membership meetings is included on the activities calendar.
The Music Parents Organization’s primary function is to raise additional funds for the operation of the Granada Music Program. The School District, although very supportive, is unable to supply all of the needed funds for transportation and maintenance of the program including instrument inventory, uniforms and equipment. Music Parents also coordinate transportation of students and equipment to performances, assist in the care and maintenance of uniforms and equipment, provide an informational website, and support the logistics of all activities of the band, color guard, jazz band and orchestra.
All parents of, and volunteers on behalf of, Granada band and orchestra students are members of the Granada Music Parents Organization. A level of involvement is needed by all members for the group to meet its goals. Our intention is not to disrupt the busy schedules of families and their student’s, however, we do ask that all members get involved in some activities throughout the school year. Most of all, we ask that all members support their students in their music experience.
