The Staples Music Parents Association (SMPA) is committed to fostering a strong sense of community within our award-winning Staples Music program between students, parents, our school and town. Our mission is to assist the SHS Music Programs by subsidizing enhanced programming, and supporting the Music Department students and faculty.

Our goal is to support and enhance a wide range of programs, services and social events that enrich our students and the Staples Music experience. We do this through promoting parent and family involvement and participation, and providing volunteer support and funding. 


Parents with students enrolled in the Staples Music Program are automatically a member of the SMPA. We hope you will consider supporting our efforts though a suggested donation of $25 per family. With this support we will be able to continue to help enhance and enrich the Staples Music program to provide the highest quality and best musical education and experience possible for students.  


The SMPA is a registered 501(c)(3) non-profit organization that helps provide financial support and parent volunteers for the Staples Music program.
