For those of you that are new to Conant or just need a little reminder,  the Conant Band Parent’s Club (CBPC) is a not for profit club that works to support the band at Conant High School.  The Club handles all financial transactions of the band.   

There are many opportunities for you go get involved.  We are always looking for volunteer help! Many volunteer opportunities require very little time commitment.  You can help as little or as much as you like, daytime or evenings.  No amount of time is “too little”.  Involvement in the club allows you to remain involved in your child's activities.

Even if you can't volunteer your time, please consider joining the club. Your dues are 100% directed to the band program to fund its many activities.   

Some of the activities that the CBPC supports include:

  • Various Pizza Parties/Hot Dogs during the year

  • Financial Support for in school concerts not funded through D211

  • Drum major camp for student Drum Majors

  • Volunteer support to help ensure programs run smoothly

  • One College Scholarship for a qualifying student 

All of these activities require time, talent and financial support.

We are requesting your involvement in this great organization!    We encourage CBPC participation for all families at the Gold level for those that can financially support our club at that level. You can purchase your membership in the online store.
