2024 – 2025 Band Fee Info

The Band Fee for the 2024-2025 school year is $150.00 + $43.00 for Shoes. The Fee will be broken out into two parts and you will be responsible for paying for both.
Band Fees are due by August 9, 2024!

  1. $30.00 will need to be paid to the Frederick County Schools directly. You can pay this through MySchoolBucks or a check to the school. The Band Boosters can not transfer the funds so please don’t pay this to the Boosters.
    NOTE: You may not be able to complete this until closer to the start of the school year, once schedules are finalized.
  2. $120.00 will need to be paid to the Sherando Band Boosters. We have set up several ways to do this.
  3. $43.00 – If your student needs new marching shoes.

If you have any questions regarding the band fee or student account information, please contact us.

Ways to Pay the $120 Fee

  1. Cash or Check (payable to SHSBBA). You can have your child put the payment in the Black Box. Please make sure their name is on the envelope or check memo.
  2. Credit Card through SwipeSimple – Band Fee.
  3. Venmo@SherandoBand – or by scanning the QR Code below.

  4. Money that is in your students account. Please contact our Treasurer if you need to get your total and then advise if you’d like to have the money transferred to their fee and/or their band shoes.
  5. Payment Plan – 3 Payments during the fall season. (Aug 2 – $50, Sept 6 – $20, Oct 4 – $50)
  6. Calendar Days Fundraiser. The first $120 raised will go towards their band fee so it’s a great opportunity for them to raise money for themselves and for the band. Learn more about the Calendar Days Fundraiser.

​What Do These Band Fees Pay For?

Great question! The short answer is that these band fees can and will be used to pay for any of the following expenses throughout the school year: Show design (marching band, indoor, etc.), Instructors, concert coaches, awards banquet, pre-game meals, band camp meals, show shirts, logistical expenses, scholarships, website, insurance, legal and accounting fees, props, equipment, fuel, uniform expenses, postage, bank service fees, instruments, transportation, music and drill purchases, music copyright fees, competition entry fees, hallway pictures production, and more! This is just a small sample of the items that our boosters come in to support for our program throughout the entire year.

We understand it may be challenging for some families to pay the band fee for their student(s). If there is a financial difficulty in affording any fee, please contact the Band Booster Board leadership, and we can work with you to see what options are available. There may be some availability of student fee sponsorships.
