Band Fees

Our annual band fees are crucial to the operation of the SME band program, as district/building funds only cover the most basic expenses. Some of the expenses the band fees cover are, but are not limited to:

  • music, equipment, and transportation
  • Marching/Jazz/Concert festival entry fees
  • food/refreshments for road trips and festivals
  • clinician and music specialist fees

Band fees for the 2019 – 2020 school year are due by Friday. August 2nd 2019
