There are several ways in which you can pay your student’s
Lump sum payment in full. If payment in full is received during these two weeks of band camp,
we offer a discount of $25.00, thereby making the total Fair Share amount $240.00.
If not paid in full at this
time, then payment is expected as follows:
August 15th (End of band camp) Initial, non-refundable payment
Second Payment (inc. Bag) $ 90
If the entire Fair Share is not paid in full by the end of band
camp (August 15th), it is expected that Fair Share payments are made on time, according to the above schedule. Payments can be made at any time either by mail or by placing the payment in the drop
box in the band room. Anyone making an obvious attempt to pay through regular
payments, will be given extra consideration by the Board with regard to meeting due dates.
When Fair Share payments are not current and made on time, this
places the entire music program in jeopardy, affecting all the students. A student
whose account is not current according to the above payment schedule, may be penalized as follows:
At the discretion of the Band Director and/or the Board, the student may not be allowed to participate
in performances and/or competitions until obligations are met or a plan to correct the deficiency has been agreed upon by
the Director and/or Treasurer.
If the account is not current by November 15th, the student will not be allowed to participate
in other band ensembles (not including concert band), such as Indoor Guard, Indoor Drumline, or subsequent marching band seasons,
until the deficiency is brought current. Nor will the student be allowed to particiate
in any band related trips (should there be any scheduled) until the deficiency is brought current.
If the account is not brought current by the end of the school year, this delinquency will be reported
to the school business office, for the appropriate actions to be taken by the school’s Administration.
Payments made towards a student’s Fair Share will always be credited first to the oldest outstanding
There are numerous fundraising opportunities, including car washes
and various sales campaigns (i.e., cookie dough, candles, fresh holiday wreaths, etc.) that are available to students throughout
the year, which would enable each student to earn money to put toward their Fair Share.
We encourage all students to participate in all these fundraisers, as they are able.
It is a great way for students to earn money for their Student Account (see explanation of Student Account). It is through these various fundraisers that each student can have an active part in earning their Fair
Share, so that no student will be left out of marching band due to lack of monies for Fair Share.
