The SHS Marching Band programs are self-funded and operate on a budget close to $80,500. Our budget encompasses band camp, bus drivers, equipment, uniforms, staff members, competition entry fees, music copyrights, props, show design and much more. Our total budget is divided among our participants to derive at each student’s Fair Share Amount for the year.
We know that $875 is a large amount for any family. That’s why we have the payment schedule and a large variety of fundraising opportunities that are credited directly to your account. These funds will roll over from year to year until the student graduates (or leaves SHS). Upon graduating, all funds remaining in the account can either be transferred to a sibling’s account that is currently in the band program or transferred into the band’s general account.
