Band Fees DUE by September 15th
Please make sure you are staying on top of your band fee payments. Fees need to be PAID IN FULL by September 15th . Late payments will be turned over to school obligations, which will prevent students from attending after-school functions like homecoming & prom, participate in school sports, and from receiving their diploma at graduation.
