Without the help of volunteer parents like you, it would be close to impossible to run the behind the scenes coordination and event planning that support our GP band family. To get more involved or if you have any questions, please email the boosters at

Email is our primary method of communication. We are working hard to keep our database updated with the most current student and parent/guardian info. If you, your student, or another guardian is not receiving our emails, or if an email address needs to be updated, please email the boosters at
