Band Parents Association

The Colonel Irvine Band Parents Association (CIBPA) is a registered fundraising group made up of parents/guardians of Colonel Irvine Band students. As not all Irvine students participate in the Band Program, a separate group is required to fundraise and organize parent volunteers specifically for the Band Program.

In the past, CIBPA has supported/subsidized Band Camp, Band clinics, bussing to field trips, Band concerts, etc. As these and many other opportunities are offered to Band students through the Band Program, fundraising activities run throughout the year to support them including selling Admazing coupon books, cookie dough, etc.

Our meetings are usually held the third Tuesday of each month at 6:30 PM in either the staff room or Learning Commons. All parents/legal guardians of Irvine students are very welcome to attend!
