CV Band Parent Information Page
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 Facebook and Twitter, 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 twice 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.
Get Involved with Booster Committees!
The CVHS BPO is structured to involve parents at whatever level they are able to commit. The board (mentioned above) is the small group that oversee the entire organization. There are also liaisons, listed at the bottom of the board page. But there are also committees that EVERY parent can be a part of. The committees often only have a few responsibilities all year. We want all parents to be involved in the success of their children's experience in the CVHS Band. Please take the time to sign up for a committee today! The four committees are: Program Support (including hospitality, food, first aid, equipment and uniforms), Fundraising (including raffles, carwashes, concessions, 50/50 and more), Special Events (including travel, banquets, concerts, invitationals and other events through the year) and Media/Publicity (including social media, website, video and service projects).
Parking and Pickup Information
The map to the right illustrates the parking lot that should be used for parking and pickup for band events. Please DO NOT park or wait on the road leading to the parking lot. It will get full and people will end up jamming up the intersection at Germann. You should park in a parking spot in the lot and wait for your student there. Also please be careful when driving through, as students often cross the street to go to their cars.
Paying Band Fees
There are a few ways to pay off your band fees. First of all, you need to know that some band fees are located on your student's Infinite Campus account. These fees are school fees and must be paid via IC or the school bookstore. The additional fees are noted on your Charms account and can be paid either online through Paypal (via Charms) or tax credit. Please visit the page SPECIFICALLY about paying fees for more information and directions.
Frequently Asked Questions
We've put together a webpage with tons of questions that are received through the year (and the list constantly grows). Please check out these questions before contacting a director or board member! If you still have questions, by all means, contact a booster or director so that we may answer them.
How to Sync the Band Calendar to My Phone
The CV Band uses a Google Calendar for all events and one of the best ways to stay on top of everything going on is to sync the calendar to your phone. While some events may not pertain to your student, you will be notified and able to see all of the CV Band events going on. Check with your student if you are unsure as to whether the event pertains to them or not.
