The Seven Lakes Orchestras Parent Association (SLOPA) is an organization whose goal is to foster, maintain, and support the Seven Lakes High School Orchestra program. This goal has been achieved in part by providing opportunities for students to grow in their love of music as well as their abilities as musicians. Since its inception SLOPA has been able to provide students with equipment, training from accomplished musicians, and opportunities to work and grow with other students in the orchestra. All parents are invited to join SLOPA in its support of the Seven Lakes Orchestra program!

Special committees are created for a specific purpose and voted upon by the membership. The committee is automatically dissolved as soon as that purpose is accomplished and the committee report is made. Special committees should complete their assignments within the current school year. If the objectives are not met at the end of the school year, officers will be required to reappoint members of the committee for the following year until the purpose of the committee has been achieved. Individuals who have a conflict of interest shall not be allowed to serve as members of the committee. For example, senior parents would not be included on a scholarship committee since their child is a potential recipient of the monies.
