In the event that a fee is not paid by the specified due date and no communication has been made with the Director regarding arrangements for the payment a 10% late fee will be charged for that month and each month that it is not paid for the payment season of June through October.

Potential Fundraisers
While some of these opportunities are limited to what is available, BHS band students receive 100% of their profits from student fundraisers. These profits are credited to your student’s charms account and may be applied to any band fee, band trip or it may be applied to the next years’ fall fee. Fundraising credits will transfer to the next school year but are not refundable to you or your student if your student transfers out of the band program or graduates. In this case, it goes into the general band fund. Examples of student fundraisers are:

  • Airport Breakfast – EAA Breakfast
  • Apparel Sale
  • Cookie Dough
  • Booster-sponsored event fundraiser ticket pre-sales

It is BHS Band policy that any student that has not met the required $200.00 (due in summer) will not be issued a band uniform and any student that has not paid the monetary balance of any outstanding fees may not be eligible to enroll in a subsequent year of band.

We look forward to your student’s and your participation in the coming year. If you have any questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to contact a board member. We encourage you to visit our website @ www.buckhornband.com for notices, forms, by-laws, update and contact information.
