It takes a village to make things happen.
Welcome parents to the Campo Verde Bands! On this page, you'll find useful information that will hopefully connect you to our program and answers some questions you may have about the CV Band. Of course, to stay connected, please visit the website regularly, subscribe to our Google Calendar, "like" CV Band on social media, and attend our monthly booster meetings. Never hesitate to contact the director or a BPO board member if you have questions!
The Band Parent Organization is a 501C3 Non-Profit Organization that supports the band program both financially and philosophically. The BPO Board meets once a month and then the entire organization meets once a month. Please plan on attending "general meetings" as they are the best way to get involved with the CV Band.
Our mission is to ensure that every student is treated like family and to provide and support musical educational opportunities for youth enrolled in the Campo Verde High School Band Programs. We facilitate student access to guard, jazz, symphonic, drumline and marching band programs and have competitions throughout the year including winter and summer seasons. We believe that by providing, not just a music education, but a fine arts education, we foster stronger and smarter students.
By partnering with teachers and parents in the choir, orchestra, and drama departments, access to the cultural arts is further expanded regardless of income, disability, race, sex, or religion. We believe the fine arts programs support strong values and often encourage students to continue with a college education. Our band program is designed to foster camaraderie and competition across the state through public school band organizations.
Why we exist.
Standing Rules and Purpose
The purpose of the Campo Verde High School Band Parent Organization (CVHS BPO) is to provide and support musical educational opportunities for youth enrolled in the Campo Verde High School Band Programs. As an organization, funds will be generated to subsidize these band programs. Funds may be used for musical instruments, uniforms, equipment, rehearsal facilities, transportation, and other costs as defined in the annual approved budget, and to provide for the best music educational opportunities possible. The CVHS BPO will also assist participants in the band program by providing fund-raisers for Individual Participant Fees, which help pay expenditures associated with the band program. Those funds will stay with CVHS BPO until they are needed to pay expenses as suggested by the band director and approved in the CVHS BPO Budget.
The CVHS BPO also fulfills a supportive role to the band program and will provide assistance with duties when deemed necessary by the CVHS Band Director. The CVHS BPO is a volunteer parent organization with the purpose of supporting CVHS band programs and the Band Director. All parents/legal guardians are a part of the BPO, an integral component to the success of the program, and have a unique opportunity to be involved in the organization. It takes significant planning and structure each year to meet the growing needs of the program. Currently, the BPO operates with a structure of officers and specific-purpose volunteer roles. The officers make up the Executive Board and work directly with the Band Director to accomplish the stated purposes of the BPO. The Advisory Board meets monthly throughout the year. The BPO General Meeting is held monthly during the school year (August through May).
