Interested in helping with a specific committee?? Take a look below and contact the committee chair for more information.

It takes about 3500 chaperone hours to keep our kids safe throughout the Marching Band season. Chaperones consist of parents/grandparents/friends of the band that help with organizing, directing and keeping the kids safe during practices, competitions, football games, parades, fundraising events, and other performances. Duties include helping with providing water and snacks, handing out bandaids or ice as needed, monitoring your assigned group, and helping to keep students safe.  This is a great way to spend time with students, see them in action and watch them transform the show over the entire season!  [Note: Chaperones must have current Volunteer Registration Clearance on file with WCPSS, so be sure your paperwork is complete!] You can complete Volunteer Registration in the front office of GHHS or any Wake County Public School.


If you are interested but have not Chaperoned please join us! We are happy to show you what we do!

Band Camp

Contact: Lesley Lloyd:

During the two weeks of band camp in July, we focus on the care and well-being of the marchers. We are always in need of field snacks, camp chairs, and afternoon snack items. We need assistance preparing and serving the dinners on the late nights during band camp. 


Band Camp is a great way for new parents to get involved! We always welcome new volunteers!

You don’t need to be a colorguard parent to come and help.  We are looking for volunteers to help with uniforms, hair, make-up and flags, mostly on football game and competition days. We need help with all the aspects of making flags, from cutting to pinning to sewing.

Have you ever wondered how students go from T-shirts and shorts to our great regiment uniforms during competitions and football games? Don’t let curiosity bug you anymore! Learn firsthand with the uniforms committee. This group consists of parents and friends of the band that help with getting the students properly sized for their uniforms dressed at competitions and events, as well as keeping the uniforms clean and organized during the season. This is a great way to spend time with students, see the show up close and personal, and bond with other people who have an interest in the band.


No experience necessary! We need uniform helpers at each game and competition. We make sure the students look their best!
