Haverford Band & Orchestra Parents


There are many ways to support our Band and Orchestra programs. We need volunteers to help with various events during the year. Many activities require only a few hours of your time. Volunteering your time is also a great way to stay involved in your child’s active life. Watch for email messages from BOPs asking for help with specific events.

If you plan to volunteer – and we hope you do – the School District of Haverford Township requires 3 clearances outlined in Pennsylvania's Child Protective Services Law. The two state clearances are free for volunteers. If you have not lived in Pennsylvania for the past 10 consecutive years, an FBI Criminal History Record, which requires you to be fingerprinted, is also required. Cost is $27. Complete details are available on the school district's website.

EZ Fundraising: Free Money for Your Student & BOPs – Really – All Year

BOPs fundraisers directly benefit Haverford instrumental music students, providing uniforms, extra instruments, assistance with scholarship, community outreach, and personal trip account accumulation. Our fundraising programs are an easy way to help our music department and our children.

In 2018, high-school students will be going to Disneyworld! For all of this fundraising, your family directly benefits too! Half of the bonus BOPs receives goes into your trip accounts. Check out the trip-information page to find out how it works for you.

Often throughout the year, special fundraising events are planned. Information will be sent via email and watch our home page.
