Volunteers are a vital aspect of any band program. We would like to have every student in the program represented by a family or friend volunteer or chaperone at at least THREE football games and/or competitions during the marching season. We desperately need volunteers for each and every band event, trip, and competition. Without volunteers, none of this is possible!
IF you would like to chaperone an overnight trip:
Review the Volunteer Clearance sheet to review the additional clearance requirements for overnight chaperones. You will need to complete a Criminal Affidavit Form, get it notarized, and contact SUSD HR. If you do not already have a current fingerprint clearance card, you will need to get fingerprinted by SUSD HR.

Please complete these steps ASAP as they can take several weeks to process.

- Videotape or photograph band events

- Help with fundraisers
- Help organize and work at social events (i.e. Ice Cream Social, Marching Band Banquet held each year in December, Parada Del Sol Parade, end of year band picnic, etc.)
