Band Fees

This is a reminder that your band fees were 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 $25.00 maintenance fee to cover cleaning of uniform. Extra shirts and shorts are $10 each. We can also arrange an installment payment plan, but you need to contact Mrs. Preisner.
