Dues are charged to make the season possible. Without the money coming in, the program would not be possible. Dues are $125.00 if you pay up front. If this is not possible we break the fees into monthly installments. All students must pay a $50 non-refundable deposit to hold their position in the ensemble. This deposit and a parent representative must be in attendance at the Winter Percussion Parent Meeting on December 16th starting at 5:30pm in the NAHS Cafeteria. All students must have at least one parent representative in this meeting to hold their position in the group. If your student chooses to quit the group this 50 dollar deposit will not be refunded. Also, if a student quits anytime during the season they give up all fees paid to the ensemble at the point of their departure. There will be several group fundraisers that go to the ensembles account to pay for ensemble expenses. After these fees are paid the extra money goes to ensembles general fund account.
Upfront payment: Cost: $75.00 +$50 deposit
Money is Due January 6th for this plan
December 16th: $50.00 non-refundable deposit due
January 6th: $25.00
January 20th: $25.00
February 3"i: $25.00

The advantage to this plan is your student can fundraise his/her dues. It also makes it easier on the check book initially.
