First Booster Payment of 2021-22
Band Booster Dues have returned to the normal rate of $600 for marching band (competition/football) members and $300 for concert band members for 2021-22. The first payment of $200 is due by the last day of school (or during rookie camp for upcoming 9th graders). This first payment/deposit ensures you a spot in the band in the Fall. There is a 5% discount if you want to pay your entire band fees during this time.
The second payment of $200 will be due during band camp and the third payment of $200 will be due by the Fall Concert in early November
End of Year Information
Concert uniforms must be dry cleaned and returned with the dry-cleaning receipt by May 12 (for those participating in District Honor Band, please have your uniform dry-cleaned after the concert and turn in ASAP). If there is no receipt of cleaning, the student's Charms account will be charged a fee. PLEASE RETURN UNIFORM ON IT'S PLASTIC HANGER THAT WAS ISSUED TO YOU! Students can hang up their uniform on the rack in the band room. Reminder that tuxedo shirts and shoes belong to the student, but we welcome donations.

BLUE POLO SHIRTS:
As we mentioned at the beginning of the year, we will continue to use the same polo band shirt from year to year. If your shirt is in good condition and fits, keep it! Every student must have a polo.
If you are graduating, not doing band next year, or have outgrown your shirt you have the opportunity to sell your shirt to another student if it's in good condition for $15. To sell your shirt, attach a self-addressed, stamped envelope with a safety pin to the shirt and return on a hanger to the band room. This needs to be done by the last day of school. New and current members will have the opportunity to purchase your shirt this summer for $15. We will mail you cash or a check.
New students to the band program and returning members who need a shirt will have the chance to purchase a new shirt for $35 or a used shirt based on availability for $15.
Questions? Bonnie Eversole - firstname.lastname@example.org
All school owned instruments must be serviced by Southeastern Music and returned to the school for inventory by May 14. A repair ticket must accompany the instrument in order for the student not to be charged for any additional repairs. The repair cost of these instruments should be charged to the individual student, not the band. If the instrument is not ready for pick up, a repair ticket must be turned in by May 14. Marching horns will not be distributed until inventory is complete. Please do not take your concert instrument for repair until you complete your concert audition.
Questions? Email Mrs. Connell email@example.com
If you have an outstanding balance due in your band account, these need to be addressed ASAP by contacting Brenda Tapia or Darin Miller. Records of unpaid dues are kept with the school as well as the band boosters and can follow a student through other school activities. It can also impact your ability to participate in the graduation ceremony or other graduation activities when you are a senior. Please take care of this now so that it's not a surprise a few weeks before you graduate.

Band Booster Association
We still have a few open positions, so contact Darin Miller if you are interested in serving. This is one of the best and most rewarding things a parent can do - it's an easy way to get involved, too.
We will be graduating students out of our Charms emailing system and REMIND in June. At that point we will also be entering our new students into the system.
