NEISD Deadline for Physicals Is August 1

We are quickly approaching the deadline for the NEISD physicals to be completed (August 1).  Physicals have to be completed each year for students participating in any form of athletic activity, including marching band.  You can download this form by clicking this link. Also, registration forms and physical forms must be turned in before students can attend upcoming events.

You can take the NEISD form to several clinics in the area to get the physical completed (or to your primary care physician — most insurance plans cover an annual physical).

Fast Aid is one of several clinics in the area offering this service (Fast Aid charges $35).

If You Haven’t Already, Turn In These Forms

If you have not turned in registration forms for the 2017-18 school year, these were due at mini band camp in June. These forms can also be found at this link.


These can be turned into the black box in the band hall during sectionals or during the CTJ Colorguard and Percussion Camp, July 17-21.

Please help us get these in as quickly as possible so that we can get all of these forms processed. Carrie and Amanda are also planning on being around during this time frame in order to collect these and answer any questions you may have.

Schlitterbahn ticket deadline August 1

On August 9, CTJ band members will have a break from the heat of August camp to cool off and have fun at Schlitterbahn! The trip will cost $48 and is completely optional. The $48 covers the park ticket and bus transportation. It does not include food. The kids have the option of taking their lunch or purchasing at the park. 

We will be at the park from 10 a.m. until 5:30 p.m., meeting at Johnson High School to load the buses at approximately 9 a.m., returning by 6:30 p.m.


Volunteering for Concessions

We are always in need of volunteers for upcoming football concessions. We ask that band families volunteer for at least three concessions during the school year. Concessions is one of our biggest fundraisers for the band, and we’ll be posting needs here from time to time.

There are several concession opportunities listed in Charms for families and students. Please consider volunteering for one. If you have any questions, please contact Todd Firsich at boilertoad@gmail.com

Follow CTJ Band on Twitter @ctjband, @CTJBPA

During the school year and through the competition season, we will be posting pictures and commentary on what is happening with band and the competitions. It is an easy way to keep updated on what’s going on when the band is out of town and performing!!!
