Upcoming dates to be aware of:
April 17, 2015
Band Camp Payments and Forms turned in.
If you are requesting money to come out of your student account, please use the form found on Charms to do so. You must request the money in writing for our accounting purposes. Also, the forms must be turned in!! Even if you have a scholarship, or no money is owed because you have enough in your student account. Chaperone paperwork is the same as the band students. Once I get your entire Chaperone packet, I'll contact you regarding additional background check that the State of MI requires.
