Basic Band Fees and Fines

Too many students have not paid their band fees. We can't afford to support all our worldclass programs. The band has paid for shoes, uniforms, entry to competitions, food at competitions, and staff members to teach marching band, brass, woodwinds, color guard and drumline. This is hard to do without your help with payment of fees. Payments can be made in the band office, at the school bank or online at
