Volunteers Sought for Board, Other Positions

It is that time of year where we begin looking for volunteers to be on the CTJBPA Executive Board or participate in other capacities that support the band parent organization and students. Our nominating committee is searching for dedicated people to help!

The CTJBPA Executive Board has a few openings for the 2017-18 school year. Currently, our Board consists of the following positions:

• President

• VP Operations

• VP Performance

• VP Student Fundraising

• VP Logistics

• Treasurer

• Secretary 

All of these positions, with the exception of Treasurer & Secretary are co-chair positions, meaning there will be two people elected for each position.

For the 2017-18 school year, we are looking for new people to co-chair VP Operations, VP Performance and Secretary. Below is a brief summary of the responsibilities for those positions:

VP Operations

• Management of Charms

• Managing registration

• Managing online transactions

VP Performance

• Co-Head Chaperone


• Weekly communication

• Management of spirit committee

• Management of pool party

Along with our Executive Board we are looking to fill positions in several other groups that are essential to the success of the Band Parent Association and Students!

Merchandise Team

• Design, purchase and sales of band merchandise

• Sales at all events (football, BPA meetings, registration, etc.)

Meal Team

Lucy Condra will be taking over meals from Kim Freund & Shannon Coop.  Lucy will need help managing and distributing meals during the fall.

Concession Managers (divided by sports)

• Volleyball/Basketball – 8-10 events

• Soccer – 6-8 events

• Softball – 10-12 events


Need 3-4 people

Duties would be fitting the band members, up keep of uniforms, altering uniforms


We are always needing a nurse or two to be with the band during events 

If you are interested in volunteering to help the CTJ Band Parent Association, please let Brian Kickhoefer or Mr. Lipman know. We are trying to fill as many of these positions for the 2017-18 school year as quickly as possible. The sooner you can let us know, the better! As always, we greatly appreciate your support!!  NONE of this could be done without your continued help!

Shoe Collection Fundraiser Under Way

We have now kicked off our Shoe Collection Fundraiser. This is in place of the GOODWILL Drive for this year.

Our goal is to collect 300 bags (each bag holds 25 pairs) which would earn the program about $3,000. We are also reaching out to the whole Johnson community to help us reach that goal.

The fundraising company only gave us 100 bags initially, so if your child has collected 25 pairs, he/she can pick up a clear plastic bag from practice room 106D, next to the collection box placed there. The company also would like us to tie shoelaces to keep pairs together or put a rubber band around them. We have a supply of rubber bands with the plastic bags, if needed.

If you have less than 25 pairs and want to go ahead and send them in, please place them in the collection box in 106D. We also have a collection bin for non-band supporters by the welcome desk in the CTJ lobby.

Please reach out to your friends, family and neighbors directly and through social media to help us reach this goal! Please contact Lisa Payne if you have any questions at lapayne@swbell.net

Volunteering for Concessions

We are in need of volunteers for upcoming football concessions. We ask that band families volunteer for at least three concessions for the 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 the CTJ Band on Twitter @CTJBPA

Throughout the rest of 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!!!
