Web Site – JupiterBands.com

You’ve found the web site!  It is filled with a lot of information – from Fundraising to Uniforms to Volunteering.  Most, if not all, of the forms that are required are on the Forms page of the site.  We also have a link to our Flickr page, where our band photographer posts pictures from band events.  Our online calendar is also kept up to date.  All of the emails that are sent are posted on the site, with the most recent ones located right on the home page – or check the Email Archives page for older emails.

Many of your questions can be answered by checking out the web site!
