Band Booster Dues
By now, we should have all paid or planned to pay the first two installments (May 15th and July 15th) of the Band Booster Dues.

Late payment notices will be issued this week for all accounts that are past due. As a reminder, a minimum of two payments totaling $375 should have been received at this point in time.
