$$$ Marching Band Fee Information From Your Friendly Neighborhood Band Treasurer
The success of our program heavily relies on each family to fulfill their financial obligations. As stated on the “commitment to excellence” information sheet, students are responsible for fundraising or paying a fee of $900.
The invoice schedule for the collection of these fees is as follows:
A $300 non-refundable deposit invoice was emailed to you mid May. This deposit is now overdue. Please pay immediately and/or contact the treasurer to avoid being turned over to collections.
The remaining $600 balance has been invoiced and will be due by October 1, 2023. Monthly reminders will be sent until invoices are paid in full.
If you have not seen your invoices come through please email the treasurer.
*Outstanding balances from previous seasons must be settled to participate in the current season.
If you plan to utilize student fundraising funds towards Ireland you MUST request this by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org. I am in communication with Music Travel and can apply fundraised funds at any time towards your Ireland balance. Communication is key.
PLEASE NOTE: Students traveling to Ireland will not be eligible for financial assistance from the boosters for the 2023-2024 school year.

Food Coordinator Notes
Please take a moment to read over the food policies here. With over 170 students in the marching program, it is important for everyone's health and safety that all families are aware of these policies; they apply whenever food is near students (booster sponsored, section parent sponsored and/or when bringing food from home).

50/50 Raffle Information
Get excited! It is time to kick off the Third Annual Black and Gold 50/50 Raffle. Tickets are NOW available. Parents can pick up tickets to sell or go to noblesvilleband.org/raffle and order online. We need your help, so check out the SignUp Genius to volunteer and get your hours knocked out.
Last year, we almost broke $40,000, with half benefitting ALL Noblesville band programs. It pays to play, and it pays to sell!
Reminder that working with students (volunteering, feeding sections during meals, etc….) requires you to have a level 3 background check on file with Noblesville Schools. Link to apply can be found at the top of our volunteer page. The boosters are providing bright yellow lanyards (pictured) for those who have an approved background check on file! You must wear this lanyard anytime you are volunteering or working with students! Thank you so much to those of you who picked up your lanyards at our parent social! For those who did not, and have an approved background check… your lanyard can be found in the uniform closet (inside gate 30). If you were recently approved, please forward your approval email to email@example.com and we will make you a lanyard! We do not get notifications about new approvals. Approval email will come from: firstname.lastname@example.org
Thank you for reading until the end! Let me know if there is any information you would like included in upcoming newsletters.
Secretary, Noblesville Band Boosters
