In order to compete at a national level, there are certain expenses that must be met. The cost involved in running a comprehensive band program is often shocking. While the school district provides a budget for the band, it is not enough to cover the costs of everything that we need. We rely heavily on student fees and fundraisers to cover the gaps. Budget allocation is discussed at our monthly booster meetings, so if you ever have a question, please come to a meeting and ask. The directors are as financially responsible and transparent as possible so that you know where, and how, we spend your money.
2020 BAND FEES
We now encourage all band fees to be paid online through your student's MySchoolFees.com account, however, payments can be made in person at Boiling Springs High School to Mrs. Carolyn Wall, bookkeeper, in the front office.
Ms. Wall can accept cash, checks or credit cards.
Please make checks payable to BSHS.
Mrs. Wall's summer hours are Monday - Thursday, 8 am to 5 pm.
Checks can be mailed to BSHS, Carolyn Wall, 2251 Old Furnace Road, Boiling Springs, SC 29316 - do not forget to include your student's name on the check!
PLEASE NOTE! Band fees can NO LONGER BE PAID on Parent Registration Day on the first day of summer band camp.
Please do not let money be a reason to not participate.
Talk to the directors so that we can try and assist. There are opportunities for students to pay fees in an alternative way. Remember, we can’t help you if you don’t talk to us.
What does the Band Fee pay for, exactly?
Student band fees do not cover a specific list of items. However, these funds are crucial to the marching band program, and we do our best to make sure our band fees are no higher than what is absolutely necessary to put an award-winning show on the field. Band fees fill the financial gap each year that is not covered by District funding.
