The Band Parents Association Treasurer maintains a list of student accounts for active band members where monies are set aside for expenses such as uniforms, equipment, and trips. The student accounts are funded by the activities of the students and their families. Some typical ways of funding the student accounts include:
Volunteering at Gillette Stadium ($25 per student or family member per event worked)
Raising money in excess of the required $125 minimum for Percussion or Winter Guard Rehearse-a-thon.
Raising money through other events as announced by the Band Parents organization during the course of the school year. In past years, this has included selling poinsettias for the holidays, selling advertisements in the home-show flyer, and even selling mattresses!
IMPORTANT! Students who are moving out of the Mansfield School District, or who are Graduating Seniors with an unspent balance in their student account may contact the BPA Treasurer and request that their remaining balance be credited to an underclassman’s account. Students have until 5pm on the Friday preceding High School Graduation Weekend to make such a request. Otherwise, the unspent balance will roll over as a donation into the BPA General fund.
