New Look, New Era -- Help our uniform campaign!
The BOP is getting a new look later this season...and YOU can help! We are asking our alumni, family, friends and supporters to help us reach our goal of raising $10,000 to cover part of the BOP's costs. There are lots of cook perks and campaign donations can range from $25 to $250! Will YOU find it in your heart to give?

Spend a night with the BOP and the TinCaps
Do you have plans for the Tuesday, Aug. 23? If not, come on down to the ballpark and listen to the sounds of the BOP perform at the FW Tin Caps pre-game celebration. Then, our seniors will delight with their rendition of the National Anthem -- all before an action-packed game of baseball watching the TinCaps. Tickets are $9 and 50% of the proceeds benefit the BOP. Want to join us? Click here to download an order form to download an order form. *ALL BOP students MUST purchase a ticket for themselves. Student tickets will be HELD with the BOP staff -- all other family tickets will be sent home.
Feed your hungry BOP-er!
Thursday night meals return on Thursday, Aug. 21 -- and this year, NIMPA will offer meals on competition Saturdays, too. Just $5 and your BOP-er will receive a hot, delicious meal. Watch for meal tickets to come home soon.
Next fundraiser coming
Guess what?? The next fundraiser begins AUGUST 8! The BOP will be selling chocolate-covered pretzel rods!
Here's how it works:
- August 8 - order forms go home (download one here). BOP-ers can check out ONE box of 52 pretzels at a time. Return box order forms to the orange mailbox!
- Aug. 16 - pick up your boxes at the PARENT PREVIEW and take them home to sell, sell, sell! Pretzels are $1 each and BOP-ers get 1/2 of their sales credited to their account! When your box is sold, return the $52 to the BOP mailbox and you can order ANOTHER! The more boxes you sell...the more you earn!
- Sept. 2 - ALL pretzel $$ MUST be turned in! Boxes NOT paid for will result in a $26 CHARGE on your BOP account (so make sure you sell them all!
Get ready for spirit wear!
It's time to get some fresh BOP gear! Watch your email for the BOP spirit wear forms, which were sent home early in August. (Download an order form here.) Deadline for ordering is Aug. 19, to ensure we have the gear back in time for our first competition.
Still time to earn money for your account
Earn $10 per golfer ($40/team of four) when they sign up for the Annual BOP Golf Outing Saturday, Aug. 23! If you know a golfer and you haven't asked them to golf in the BOP outing, what are you waiting for? BOP-ers get $10 per golfer ($40 per team) for every golfer they sign up! Cost is only $60 per person, $240 per foursome and it will be a TON of fun (I promise!). Come and golf with Mr. VP, band parents and alumni and help raise funds for NEW uniforms!

The inaugural Big Orange Golf Outing was formed in 2012. The event pairs fun and fundraising with a day on the golf course. This year, 32 teams of four golfers will tee off on Saturday, August 23, (rain or shine) at Colonial Oaks Golf Course with holes sponsored by area businesses.
