Each student will have an account that is tracked and managed by the Band Booster First Vice President. Band dues help pay for uniforms, sheet music, competition and concert judges, transportation, instruments, instruction, and field maintenance, and other items to support students and the program.
Annual Band Fees are $375 and can be paid directly (check, cash, or online viaPayPal) and/or it can be paid through fundraising efforts. For cash flow purposes, it would be beneficial if you made monthly or quarterly payments into your account.
|First Payment – $125||Due August 4|
|Second Payment – $125||Due September 8|
|Final Payment – $125||Due October 6|
Payments in cash or check (made payable to “EMBB”) are preferred to avoid credit card fees.
To make online payments:
Login to the CHARMS WEBSITE. Select the Parents/Students/Members Tab. The school code is EMHSBand (case sensitive). The initial passcode is the student’s CMS ID number. This will be changed the first time that you login. If you have forgotten your passcode, email Mr. Moreau. Once you are logged in, go to the Financial Tab and make a miscellaneous payment in the amount that you would like. If you prefer to pay the entire $350, make a fixed payment. Once you have done this it will redirect you to PayPal to finish your payment.
If the payment plan above will not work for your family, make sure to take part in the band’s fundraisers. A payment plan can also be set up with monthly payments by emailing Mr. Moreau.
All new band and guard members will need to pay a (refundable) uniform deposit of $30. New marchers should plan to bring this during band camp, August 1 – 16. Returning marchers will be able to use your uniform deposit from previous years rolled into this year.
All woodwind, brass, and percussion members should purchase a flip folder and lyre for stand music at football games. These are available at local music dealers such as Music & Arts. Mr. Moreau will have a limited supply during band camp for students to purchase.
