PARENT VOLUNTEERS NEEDED!
Volunteer parents are a big reason for the success of the music program at El Camino High School. These parents are involved in carpooling students to festivals and events, setting up, staffing and closing our fundraising events and concerts, and baking or bringing concessions to events and concerts. Now, we need new parents to volunteer and join our returning parents so we can continue to provide these events.
Volunteering with the ECHS Music Boosters is a great way to meet new parents, share ideas and support your community and your child's music program!
