Granada High School
Some things YOU can do to help!
The Music Parents support our music program and Mr. Pascoe in making this a fun, rewarding, and learning experience for the students. We help the Band and Color Guard get ready for Band Reviews. We have several fundraisers throughout the year to help supply our students with instruments, music, and anything else they need to run a successful program. We also have a lot of fun. See the Contact page for the Music Parents information.
If you would like to volunteer, the district requires you register as a volunteer through their website:
Uniforms - People are needed at the beginning of the school year to help fit the Band students into the uniforms.
Pep Band - The Pep Band plays at Granada home football games. We need parents to help set up the pep band/music section of the bleachers and chaperone the evening. Best seats in the house to hear the music and watch the football game!
Band Reviews - The Marching Band competes in three or four competitive Saturday reviews each year in the Fall. It's great fun to watch our kids perform, so this is one of the easiest and nicest ways to help. For each review, the truck needs to be loaded the night before with uniforms, drums, tubas, Color Guard Flags and Letters, and other items. It then needs to be unloaded at the Band review, reloaded after the Band Review and unloaded again back at Granada. We need parents to ride the buses with the Band as chaperones. This is an easy way to get to the Band Reviews. At the Review site we need parents to help prepare the Band for the competition. This includes checking uniforms, checking hair, etc. We need parents to march with the band carrying water bottles. We also need a few dads to carry the tubas after the Band has performed. After the Band performs we need parents to check the uniforms before they are put away. At two of the Band reviews we feed the Band, so we need parents to help with that.
Livermore Main Street Holiday Parade - Like the Band reviews but without the uniforms. We still need to get the big instruments and the Letters to the Parade route.
Fiesta - This is our biggest fund-raiser of the year. Fiesta is a large competition event for the Flags and the Percussion Ensemble, with up to 70 or so competing teams.Our own ensembles compete at Livermore High and host at Granada. It is a long day and to be successful we need every possible person available. This includes Band Members, Orchestra, Color Guard and all parents.
Concerts - We can always use volunteers to take donations at the door during the Winter and Spring Concerts. These concerts include both Band and Orchestra.
Livermore Rodeo Parade (June) - As with the Band Reviews we need to get the truck loaded and unloaded, both before and after the parade.
