WELCOME TO HAVERFORD BOPS
The Band & Orchestra Parents Organization (BOPs) is a parent-run organization that supports the music education program in the School District. Established in 1929, our original mission was to purchase uniforms for the band, orchestra, and color-guard.

VOLUNTEERING & CLEARANCES
There are many ways to support our Band and Orchestra programs: Volunteer with BOPs!
We need volunteers to help with various events during the year. Many activities require only a few hours of 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 volunteers.
If you plan to volunteer – and we hope you do – please read the requirements of the clearance process on the school district's website. Please note:
If you have lived in Pennsylvania continuously for the last 10 years, FBI fingerprinting is not necessary. A residency affidavit may be submitted in lieu of the FBI check.
Clearances are now valid for 5 years.
