Band Fee Breakdown 2019-2020

Westside High School administration and the band staff has worked hard to bring down the band fees. This is the lowest the fees have EVER been! Please make sure you that a.) You pay for your child’s fee on time b.) Get involved with the few fundraisers the band has throughout the year. Fees will always stay this low if our highly successful March-A-Thon brings in a lot of money – please get engaged in our Annual March-A-Thon Fundraiser in November/December.

We are encouraging students/parents to pay the entire fee on August 5th (first full day of summer band). Please let us know of any financial issues – we will ABSOLUTELY work with you! There is no free reduced lunch price for band fees. If you have a financial hardship, please e-mail Mr. Brunson in the summer. Failure to keep up with payments will result in revoked privileges (i.e. not participate in football games, or activities that correspond with fee payments).

Important Band Fee Reminders:

• Fees cover items such as; food for football games/contests, snacks, uniform cleaning, band shirts, tuxedos, dresses, concert dress cleaning, contest fees, clinicians, music, transportation, awards, supplies, equipment, boosters, etc.

• Special Note: Throughout the year, students/parents will have many opportunities to fundraise for their membership fees and for the general band booster fund. Do not sell any merchandise at the school. Westside High School will enforce this rule.

• There will be several outside events that occur during the school year. Our band fee does not include fees for events such as Region Band Auditions, accompanist fees, and occasional meals needed during/on trips. All students will be given ample notification of these events and occasions.

When are my band fees due? Band fees are due on August 6th, 2018 (first day of Full Summer Band) – Please pay all at once.
