How to Help

There are many ways YOU can help the Jupiter High School Band program!  We appreciate the support of band families, donors and local businesses.

Volunteer

MANY volunteers are needed to run a successful band program.  Volunteer opportunities are announced via email and posted on our Volunteer Opportunities page.  We also have many band parent positions open; all positions and contact information are listed on our Parent Organization page.

ALL volunteers must be registered with Jupiter High School in VIPS.  All volunteers must re-register every school year.  Volunteering also earns your hours towards the Volunteer Credit, which helps reduce your out of pocket costs for band fees.  For more information about VIPS ant the Volunteer Credit, see the bottom of our Volunteer Opportunities page.

Become a Sponsor

We love our Sponsors!  Businesses and individuals can support the band program in general or a specific student.  Benefits vary depending on the donation amount.  For more information about Sponsorships, visit our Sponsors page.

To become a sponsor, print the Sponsorship Form located on our Sponsors page and submit it as instructed.  Sponsorships over $500 can have a banner placed in the JHS stadium or gymnasium.

For a list of our current sponsors, see our Sponsors page.

Adopt-A-Student

Help your favorite band student by “adopting” them and supporting them financially.  For more information about this program, look at the Adopt-A-Student forms on our Forms page.

Every once in a while the band has special requests for specific items.  Check this space for those special needs!  Donations can be dropped off when the band room is open in the band kitchen or the music library.

  • Large Dust Mop: Preferably 24″ to 36″ wide, similar to the one shown on this link

  • The Color Guard is looking for new or used 2-drawer or 4-drawer file cabinets: The drawers don’t have to work – we just need solid cabinets. We will remove the drawers and lay the cabinet on its back to store guard equipment in the drawer spaces!  If you can have a donation, contact Christina DeLong at ucf98teach@yahoo.com.

Help us spread the word!  JHS Band events and donation needs are announced on our Facebook page.  Like our page and share our posts on your newsfeed!

Donate to Band Trailer Project

The JHS Band is in need of moving trailer to haul our equipment to and from events and competitions.  The purchase of a trailer would save us the time and expense of renting 2-3 UHaul trucks for every marching band, Winter Guard and Winter Percussion competition.

This purchase will help us keep our competition costs down, greatly improve logistics at performances, and provide much needed additional storage for the band.

Your logo will be placed on the truck with a donation of $1,000 or more.  Contact our Band Treasurer Rosalie Jablonski at rljablonski@gmail.com for more information.

Thank you for your consideration!
