Remainder of your band fee is due at Spirit Night, August 11. The treasurer, Patti Rojec, will be sending out an email midweek with your balance and instructions for payment. Please help keep the payment line short by paying ahead. Remember, you can always check your Charms account for amount due.

  • If you have enough in your fundraising ledger to cover the full fee, this will be used to pay the band fee.
  • IF YOU DO NOT HAVE THE FULL AMOUNT in your fundraising ledger, send a check for the difference and the treasurer will add that to your funds raised and apply to your fee.

Note:  Band Fees need to be paid in full by August 11 because of up-front expenses that must be covered.  If your student is successful in fundraising during the semester, you can request a refund from the Treasurer later in the season.   Send an email to Treasurer Patti Rojec.

On select days this week before camp, please arrive with your section for Button Pictures outside of Fine Arts Building. A uniform will be provided for the photo. Pack a lunch to eat before camp. For those who need uniform fittings, please proceed to the uniform fitting area after your section has taken button photos.
