In this day of cutbacks and funding decreases, it is essential that we supplement the limited funds that are allocated to the band budget in order to enhance the educational experience of our students. The best thing you can do is become active in the BPA. Many of our student events, performances and activities rely heavily on parent volunteers, and your participation is encouraged, appreciated and needed. It takes an army of volunteers to make things run smoothly for the band, and although they won’t admit it, your kids actually like having their parents involved!
