Original post made by Marilyn, Del Prado, on Sep 28, 2012

The Amador Friends of Music is holding a “Thanks a Thousand!” celebration to honor Jonathan Grantham on completing his 10th year as Director of Bands at Amador Valley High School and being named 2012 Teacher of the Year by the school district.

Students, friends, colleagues and community members are invited to send a thank you note, written memory or photo to be compiled into a book that will literally contain “1000 Thanks!” They should be 8-1/2
by 11 inches and emailed to or mailed to Sally Baker, 3147 Lansdown Court, Pleasanton 94588, who can be reached at
518-5916. A template is available at Web Link.

The celebration will take place Saturday, Oct. 13, at Amador Valley High, beginning at 1:00 p.m. in the stadium when the 2012 Amador Valley Marching Band and Colorguard will present a rehearsal run-through of the 2012 field show, followed by the presentation honoring Grantham.
