BAND FEES (This info may change for the 2017 School Year)
The band fee is $125 for all band students.   Band fees will be collected at the Band Association Parent Meeting during Band Camp.  The fees that the students pay are only a small percent of what it takes to pay for the music, arrangements, additional instruction ,instruments and repairs. The band fee funds are used all year and are not just for marching band.  We have been asking around and most band fees are well over $500,  The Band Association is challenged to come up with the funding needed to cover the costs of the Band Program.   Thank you for your support and understanding.
Please contact section leaders for ANY questions.
