Thank you to everyone who volunteered during the school year. From our tournament and football games to concerts and Solo and Ensemble, your hours of help make GOLD such a successful program!
The booster board still has plenty of chair positions for short term help on specific areas. Please let us know if you can help out.
Also stay tuned for August when we will be asking for Band Camp volunteers!
Please contact Grace Joya at if you have any questions.

GOLD Volunteer Request and Opportunities:
Welcome to another exciting year with Westview GOLD!
Your student will be part of many fun and enriching musical activities and events in the coming year. These events and activities are heavily (and often entirely!) dependent on volunteer support. For this reason, Westview GOLD relies on each family volunteering 30+ hours of their time during the school year. Helping out is great fun—you’ll be working with some really terrific people-- making new friends and getting reacquainted with old ones as an active part of the GOLD family!
If you are able, we’d really appreciate the following:
Ideally, ten of your family’s hours would come from volunteering toward the Westview Field Show Tournament on Wednesday, Nov 9, 2016—our largest fundraising opportunity of the year. For those unable to work the actual tournament day, there are opportunities to help with food pick-up, prep, and other pre-tournament needs.
An additional 20 hours would ideally come from assisting with any other GOLD-related volunteer needs throughout the year.
We also have many chair positions that are typically short-term commitments. For example, organizing the concessions at the tournament, arranging GOLD merchandise or leading a fundraiser. Any of these chair positions fulfills your 20-hour commitment.
A sampling of volunteer opportunities and approximate dates is listed below.
Take a peek and think about what you might be interested in. Current opportunities are always listed on the GOLD website Volunteer page per the path indicated above. You’ll also be notified via GOLD updates of additional needs as they arise throughout the year.

Volunteering with the Westview Gold Music Boosters is a wonderful way to participate and contribute to your studentÊ¼s high school experience. Your participation is crucial to the success of this program and introduces you to a great group of parents. Your help is welcome any time. However, if you would like to volunteer to be a Chaperone, or help with Uniforms or with equipment as a Band Dad, you will need to be cleared through the Poway Unified School District. Please refer to the district volunteer webpage for forms and information on TB testing:
