Band Parents Association

The Band Parents Association (BPA) is an organization made up of the band directors and current band students' parents/guardians to provide logistic and additional financial support to the Lincoln High School fine arts program. The organization is an all-volunteer run, officially registered 501(c)3 nonprofit.​

  • The BPA serves in several capacities throughout the band year to assist in building props, chaperoning, fundraising logistics, distribution of products, spirit wear, spat camp supplies, communications, website, social media, and more.
