What We Do


The Newport Band Parents Association (NBPA) enriches our students’ band experience in many ways…

  • We provide information to parents
  • We encourage parent involvement with the band program
  • We plan and host special events
  • We coordinate volunteers
  • We support the Newport High School Band staff
  • We provide a forum for new ideas
  • We raise and administer funds to support band opportunities and supplement the equipment budget, allowing us to buy and repair instruments for the students and to provide need-based student financial assistance for various events
