Band Happenings week of 05/22/23

GPHS Band Happenings week of 05/22/23

Thank you to everyone who volunteered and made donations to support our concession stand fundraiser this past Saturday at the Jazz Festival!

As the 2022-23 school year draws to a close, the GP Band Boosters have begun planning for the 2023-24 school year. Parent volunteers serving on the Band Booster Board or simply helping out wherever whenever needed help to make our GP Band Program successful. However, we need more parents involved—we need you! As students and parents move on from GPHS, there is a real danger that there will no longer be a GP Band Booster Board to support the GP Band Program. That said, three (3) of our current board members will have seniors next year.

Watch for a separate detailed email this week with all the volunteer info for the coming year.

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
