Like any after-school program, band does have cost associated with it. A minimal portion of the band's budget is provided by the school, so it is necessary for each student to contribute. These fees pay for summer band, uniforms, independently contracted staff, shirts, transportation, and many other expenses. The assessments are divided across several months for convenience and there are many ways to work through any difficulties. Please get in touch with a band director quickly if you have any concerns... we are happy to work with you!
