$$$ 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. Payment options will be included in the email.
The remaining $600 balance will be invoiced June 23rd and will be due by October 1, 2023. Monthly reminders will be sent until invoices are paid in full.
*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.
