Outstanding Band Fees

Dear Band Family,
This is a reminder if you still owe band fees for this year they are due ASAP. We still have students that have balances on their account. Over the next few weeks, Brian and I will be sending an email out to families that have outstanding balances on their account. Please keep in mind that in order for us to keep providing the experience that our students receive each year from our band program, it takes a lot of financial help, and band fees are part of that. If anyone has questions around their band fees or would like to know what they owe, please feel free to email me at spencer4460@gmail.com or let the Band Directors know. Thank you for your support around this.

Band Booster President

Final Disney Payment Due

Good afternoon Disney Trip Family,
This is a reminder that final payment for our Disney Trip is due. Donna will be sending out final invoices soon. On that invoice will be your last Disney payment and if your student has unpaid band fees. This was made clear at all Disney Trip parent meetings, that all students going had to be “in good standing with the band” to be eligible to go. If you have any questions, please reach out to me at spencer4460@gmail.com, or to Mr. Kite or Mr. Bayerle.
Thanks again for your support,
Tony Spencer
Band Booster President
