BMPA FAQs

How do I join the BMPA?

You don’t have to do a thing to join the BMPA. Full voting membership is AUTOMATICALLY GRANTED to the parents or legal guardians of any student in the Beavercreek High School Music Department. Non-voting membership may be extended to any person supporting the goals of the BMPA.

No.

Does the BMPA sponsor “fundraisers”?

Yes. Proceeds from fundraisers support some of the expenses of the Music Department. The primary source of funds comes from the sale of concessions at outdoor and indoor BHS sporting events, and special events of the Marching Band & Color Guard, Friends Show Choir, and Beaverettes Dance Team. Funds are also obtained from Citrus Fruit Sales the first weekend in December and members' continuous participation in the Kroger Neighborhood Rewards Program.

How successful are the BMPA-sponsored fundraisers, and how are the profits distributed?

BMPA-sponsored fundraiserstraditionally have been very successful. Concession net profits and the Kroger Neighborhood Rewards Program are distributed according to the number of students enrolled in the Instrumental Music and Color Guard, Choral Music, and Dance Team programs in October of each year. All net profits from the Citrus Fruit Sale are distributed to each program according to the amount sold by the participating students from that program.

When and where does the BMPA meet?

Monthly meetings are usually held on the first Monday of each month at 7:00 pm in the Band Room. BMPA meetings usually last 30-45 minutes and are followed by Instrumental Music and Color Guard, Choral Music, and Beaverettes Dance Team individual meetings.
