Queen Elizabeth Band Parents Association
Join the Executive Committee
As the parent of a band student, you are a Member of the QEBPA and are eligible to join the Executive Committee! The Executive Committee is a group of fun and dedicated parents that help make the band program an excellent experience for our students. As senior students leave the program, they take their (Executive Committee) parents with them, so there is always room at the beginning of each year.
At the AGM, be ready to take the opportunity to join us!
Who Are We?
Queen Elizabeth High School in Calgary, Alberta (Canada) has a great reputation for its band program.
The Queen Elizabeth Band Parents Association (QEBPA) is the not-for-profit society that proudly exists to support the program. Without the volunteer and financial support of the QEBPA, band students would not have the opportunity to experience band camp, workshops, off-site performances and band trips.
Please explore our website to find information on concerts & performances, membership, fundraisers and trips. If you are looking for a rewarding experience, we encourage you to get involved in the band program! Volunteer commitments could involve as little as one or two hours of your time. Please look at your schedule and the QEBPA calendar and then plan to participate!
Mandatory Band Meeting & QEBPA AGM
At the beginning of each year the Queen Elizabeth Band Parents Association holds our Annual General Meeting combined with the Band Director's Mandatory Band Meeting, where you learn about the year's planned activities and expectations.
This meeting will be held in September, 2019 at the Queen Elizabeth Jr/Sr High School.
Spring Bottle Drive
Spring is here and that means it is time for the Queen Elizabeth Band Bottle Drive! This event is taking place next Saturday April 13 from 9:15 am - 1:00 pm. Band students, parents and siblings over 10 can participate in the bottle drive to earn credits towards payment for band trips and fees. Please meet and sign in starting at 10 am in the SGA at Queen Elizabeth School. Breakfast snack items will be provided to volunteers starting at 9:15 am. This year, we do not have to sort bottles so only require drivers and volunteers for bottle pick up. Hope to see you there!
There will be an auction for pottery created by each band class. Individuals can bid on these items at the Junior Band concert on Wednesday June 12 where these items will be on display. The money raised from this pottery will go towards the Queen Elizabeth Band Parent Association for future use. As well, these items will be on display in the band room and can be bid on after the concert as well.
