These kids work so very hard and have accomplished a great deal. Lots of sweat and labor on their part. I will be there to support them and hope you will too. It's is a worthy cause. If you are not convinced, then please come out and hear them play. They love visitors!

Come by and see what's for sale. There will be refreshments served as well. No, band doesn't have boosters to defray the cost. The parents pay for their students to be in band, Colorguard, and Percussion- and its not cheap ($850 for this band season) These kids work really hard, and are looking and sounding great. You can see them at half-time at the Amador Varsity home football games. Colorguard (winterguard) and percussion also perform in competitions during the winter season.

Show your community pride and have fun at the same time! Great cause that will help the continuation of the AVHS Marching Band and Colorguard program, one of the most rewarding, significant and loved hometown traditions. This Marching Band is always proud to represent our dear community and has delivered the best shows of music, movements and dance you'll ever see. Let's make this fundraiser a big success together!

Okay I am convinced. This seems like a great cause. Yes I too can hear the music from my home and thoroughly enjoy it. Since there will be goodies there, you have persuaded me to check it out. I am in support of contributing to this cause. Best of luck to your band.

Band parents, you can stop posting now. We get the message.
Why don't you guys ever stick around to watch the second half of a football game? Mass exodus every game from the north side of the grandstand as soon as the band finishes their half time show. There are other kids out there in front of you doing their best as well, and they deserve your support as well.

What about the fans that leave the stands during the half time and don't bother to see what this group is doing that evening? Most of these families start again on Saturday morning for a 9 hour rehearsal day or a 14 hour rehearsal/competition day.

One of the highlights of our time in Pleasanton has been experiencing the school spirit at Amador Valley. Over the past six years since our sons have been at AVHS, we've been so impressed at how the students, no matter what part they play under the Friday night lights, appreciate and respect each other. The Don Squad all decked out in purple, the Football team tearing up the turf, the fearless flying that the Cheerleaders do at half-time. I love it when the band gives the "Amador Pride" cheer to the football team as they come out of the locker room, and I love watching the trombone player marching in her chearleading uniform!
I'm also impressed, week after week, by the level of commitment shown by parent volunteers: the athletic boosters working so hard in the concession stand, and the band parents pushing and pulling all that equipment and all those chairs out on to the track each week. I'm grateful that they're all spending the second half of the game cleaning up and putting all that stuff away while I watch the rest of the game. Thanks for the great show, everyone. See you all at the Monte Vista game!
