PAYMENTS and PAPERWORK (online!)
Being part of the band includes requirements for both students and parents. At this point in the season, we should have all payments made and forms completed. As of now:
4 students have unpaid band fees ($150 paid to the school)
8 students have not paid for the accessories package they already received ($15)
4 non-guard students have not paid for the compression shirt ($15)
8 non-guard students have not paid for band shoes ($36)
4 parents and students haven't completed the band form online, which means we have no health information and no emergency contact information
PLEASE get these items completed so we can focus on making great band.
If you are unsure what you owe, please go to https://whhsbandboosters.membershiptoolkit.com/user_orders to see any orders with a balance due.

Fruit will be delivered to the school in early December
Goal is 7 boxes per student
