Your “Fair Share” account: In order to participate in band, every student is expected to pay their Fair Share in the form of band dues. Band is an optional activity with many proven benefits, and we want everyone to be able to afford the program. On the Fundraiser page you will read about all the different ways that you can fundraise your entire amount.
Band Webstore: The webstore is temporarily disabled. Please watch for updates.
Schedule of payments: Band dues for marching season are $210 for instrumentalists, $195 for auxiliary. (Marionettes and Colorguard have additional dues that are collected by their instructors)
Your band account: Every Marching Ram is set up with a band account. The account number is the student ID. All money from band dues and fundraisers is automatically deposited into this account, and the statements are posted periodically on the website under the student ID number.
Questions: If you have a question about your student account, please contact the treasurer for your group.
Payment coupons: For the school year 2012-2013, band dues for instrumentalists are due on May 22, July 19, August 19, and September 19. Coupons for dues payments – instrumentalists only. Colorguard and Marionettes, please contact your instructor for payment terms.
Payment box outside band office: Instrumentalists, please drop off all payments in the black lock-box outside Mr. Mitchell’s office. Envelopes are available in the band room. Include these 5 pieces of information on the envelope:
2. Whether you are I-M-CG
3. What the money is for.
4. Amount of payment (Fair Share, Solo/Ensemble entry fees etc, Accessories)
5. Date of payment
Using fundraised money to pay for your band dues: The goal of participating in fundraisers is to earn money to pay your Fair Share. When it is time to make a Fair Share payment and you have enough money in your Student Account to cover that payment, please fill out the Student Account Transfer Request form and send it in to the band office. The band treasurer (firstname.lastname@example.org) will apply your fundraised money towards your band dues.
Pay in full: It is mandatory that all students pay their band dues in full. Students who have not done so will not be allowed to attend the Band Awards Banquet or try out for leadership positions. In addition, the names of everyone who have not paid their dues in full will be turned in to the school’s front office. This will show as a Debt on your school account, and affect your ability to get a parking decal, tickets to graduation, transcripts and diplomas. However, by participating in the band fundraisers, many students raise the full amount of their full Fair Share. All seniors who are paid in full will receive complimentary tickets to the Band Awards Banquet.
