Boosters

Welcome from the Cleveland HS Band Parent’s Association (CvHS BPA)

CvHS BPA is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization.

CvHS BPA provides support for Cleveland Arts Performance Ensemble throughout each season and encourages active involvement by students, parents and friends of the band. Much of the information you need to get started is available below.  If your student is a member of an ensemble this season, you will gain full access to the members portion of the website upon completing and returning the Parent/Student Information form and the Medical Permission form (both downloadable below).  These can be returned to the band room or mailed in.

We encourage online entry of most information via the website.  If paper documents are preferred or required, they can be placed in the black mail box outside the band directors office in the band room.  You can drop forms, checks, etc in the box or have your student do it.  Make all checks payable to: Cleveland HS Band Parent’s Assoc

You can also mail documents for the band to:

Cleveland High School BPA
65 Glen Rd
PMB 195
Garner, NC 27529

Please be sure your students name is clearly indicated on any paperwork.

Forms and Useful Information:

  • Student/Parent Information and Medical Permission Forms.   These forms are REQUIRED to be completed before the start of the season.  Completion of these forms gives us information we need to have to allow your student to participate in the program.  It also give us what we need to grant you access to the website and include you on emails so you can stay up to date on the latest happenings.
  • 2018 Marching Band Commitment Letter.  The commitment letter is our way of providing complete information about the upcoming season.  It covers the details about both the financial obligations and time commitment necessary to be a part of a successful program.  Prior to joining the ensemble, the parent and student must review, sign and return the form so we know everyone has the same understanding of the upcoming season.
  • Pay your fair share points online.  This link provides a simple, online way to pay your fair share online.  Credit and debit cards are both accepted.  A 3% processing fee is automatically added to cover our costs.
  • Student Sponsorship Form.  Sponsorship provides a means for a parent or friend of the band to sponsor the program or a student.  You can provide a donation to the general fund, sponsor a student in need of assistance (board selects) or sponsor a specific student by name.  You can setup your sponsorship online here or if you prefer, download the and use the form.
