Band Fees

This is a reminder that your band fees are due by the end of band camp.  New member fee is $55.00 and covers the cost of shoes, shorts and t-shirt.  All upper-classmen owe a $30.00 maintenance fee to cover the cost of cleaning your uniform. Extra shirts and shorts are $12 each. We can also arrange an installment payment plan, but you need to contact Mrs. Preisner.


Volunteer Opportunities for Parents

Our Band Boosters play a very important role in the success of our band. We need volunteers to help with concessions at Swanton Fireworks, the Century Resources sale (November), football concessions, and sideline help at contests. Thank you for your support!
