  • CBPC meeting on August 15 at 7pm
    Please join us for the first Conant Band Parents Club meeting of the year on August 15 at 7pm in the Choir Room.   

    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.

  • Conant Band Uniform Fittings - August 13

    All marching students and freshmen are required to attend the fitting day on August 13.   This includes freshmen not marching. 

    We need to fit all students for concert wear.  For those that are marching, they will also be fitted for a marching uniform. 

    August 13 Fitting Schedule is as follows:  

    ·         Seniors:   8:30 a.m.-9:30 a.m.

    ·         Juniors:    9:30 a.m.-10:30 a.m.

    ·         Sophomores:   10:30 a.m.-11:30 a.m.

    ·         Freshmen:     11:30 a.m.-1:30 p.m.        

    While we try and space out the crowds during the day to reduce wait time, if you have a scheduling conflict during your time slot please come at another time. It is critical we get everyone in a uniform on that day and order the concert wear.

    All fees must be paid in full by August 13.

    The band is now using Charms Office for our financial accounting system.  For the fees required of all band students as well as Conant Band Parent Membership, we will be utilizing this system to accept payments for all payments.   We prefer that all fees be paid via credit card to reduce the manual processing time involved with the collection of money from 200 students.  The site directs you to Paypal but you do not need a Paypal account to pay via credit card!

    To access the Charms System, we have created a step by step video that walks you through how to enter the system and make your payments.   Please follow link below for your how-to guide! The online store is open and accepting payments.
