This next group is the Granada High School Cheerleaders. The young ladies have an important role in helping to shape the atmosphere at Granada High. They are leaders in the school and in our community. The Granada High Cheer Team consists of both varsity and junior varsity level teams. A total of 30 athletes participate in cheerleading for Granada High. This year the Varsity team will be attending Cal Poly San Luis Obispo for summer camp. Aside from promoting spirit on campus the Granada High Cheer Team participates in a variety of community events such as: Relay for Life, Welcome Home events for military personnel, Holiday decorating at the Veterans Hospital, and Raising funds during the month of October for Breast Cancer Awareness. Last October the Cheer Team raised over $1500 for the Breast Cancer Foundation. They are honored to perform for you in today's parade.

Right behind the cheerleaders is the Granada High School Matador Marching Band. The band is under the direction of Thomas E. Jones. The drum major is Meghan Ramsey, and color guard captain is Patrick Patterson. The Granada High School Marching Band is proud to participate in the 2012 Rotary Rodeo Parade. This award-winning band has performed up and down the West Coast of the United States and Canada for over 25 years, but nothing compares to playing for the "home town crowd"! Today the band will perform the march “General Michell" by R.B. Hall. Enjoy their performance.
