DHS Band Parent Association


 

The Decatur High School Band Parent Association (DHSBPA) is a  501(c)(3)non-profit parent volunteer organization. The mission of the DHSBPA is to support the Decatur High band program (musicians and color guard), including financial support to supplement funds from the City Schools of Decatur (CSD), and promote parental involvement in band activities.

 

The Band Parent Association does NOT replace the communication between the Band Director, Mr. Truan, and the students.

 

The overall goal of the BPA is to provide an enriching band experience for all students who participate in the band which includes:

 

  • Organizing and running band camp
  • Purchasing and repairing instruments
  • Funding additional classroom and marching band program instruction
  • Purchasing musical arrangements
  • Purchasing and maintaining the marching band uniforms
  • Providing financial aid to students

 

In this day of cut backs and fund 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.  One of the best things you can do is become active in the DHSBPA. That doesn’t mean you have to volunteer for everything, but your participation is encouraged and appreciated. 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 in some band activities!
