Fees Policy

All students will need to pay fees for participation in the band:

  1. $75 Band Fee per year.
    • This covers many expenses to get the band season up and running. The San Jacinto Band Booster Club helps provide the cost of feeding the students, purchasing music, publishing rights, specialty instruction, medical supplies, and other expenses incurred. It also includes transportation to the events, the food served at competitions, expenses to get the trailer to and from competitions, registration fees, and other miscellaneous expenses for travel to and from local competitions.
  2. $75 Maintenance Fee per year (for students using school owned instruments).
    • This fee covers the summer flush out and cleaning of each instrument that is used by a band kid. This ensures that every kid gets a working instrument at the beginning of every year.  This fee does not cover emergency repairs during the school year.  
  3. .25 Copy Fee
    • This small fee covers any student who has lost any music that has already been given to them and needs extra copies.
  4. $36 Solo and Ensemble Cancellation Fee
    • Any student who fails to attend without giving a weeks notice will be charged this fee to cover the cost of the contest.

Students must first pay their band fee & instrument rental (if applicable) in order to go on the end-of-year Spring Trip Competition.

We are aware that at times there are financial hardships. All fees can be fundraised. Money is not an obstacle for participation in the SJ Band Program.
