The A. C. Reynolds High School Band Parent Association, Inc. (BPA) is comprised of a group of parent volunteers who have teens enrolled in the school’s Concert or Symphonic Wind classes and the Band Director. Our History: In 1975 the school’s band parents incorporated under the name of A. C. Reynolds Band Aid Association, Inc. In 1992, the dissolution of that group was rolled over into the newly formed Reynolds Band Parents Association Inc. More recently, the 2011 band parents amended the 1992 incorporation and emerged as the A. C. Reynolds High School Band Parent Association, Inc. or just ACRHS BPA. No matter the corporation name, Band parents have always been supportive of the musical talents their teens have displayed during the past years and will continue their support as new students enroll and their parents become involved. Our Mission: The BPA exists as an incorporated organization to financially support and adapt to the changing educational needs of the entire high school band program and the objectives of its Band Director at A.C. Reynolds High School. Our Purpose: Organize fundraising to help the Band Director meet the financial needs and goals of the entire band program activities of A.C. Reynolds High School. Encourage parents to participate in opportunities for volunteerism at functions of the high school band program. Our Fundraising: The BPA’s annual fundraising efforts produce products in support of the Rocket’s Varsity and JV football teams and the Performing Art Department’s spring musical production. Spending The Raised Funds: The BPA has a minimal operating budget to fund its own annual expenses. The greater percentage of our money funds the band program with the purchase of: - Sheet music - New instruments - Repaired of existing instruments - Instruction during marching band camp - Scholarships for students unable to afford entrance fees into auditions and clinics - Bussing and drivers for events - Guest conductors during the school year - Band entry fees for competitions - Uniform maintenance for marching band including dry cleaning - Student hotel expenses for out of town band clinics
