You can start bringing in the $40 band fee.  Regarding all money to ever be paid at Fertitta M.S., we don't accept checks, so please pay in cash or money order.

No one in beginning band needs to have an instrument yet. We will be trying out the different mouthpieces in class so students can find a "good fit".  We most likely won't need to have instruments in class until Monday, Sept. 22 after Open House (the 18th) and the following weekend.


Advanced Band will be performing at Open House on Sepember 18th.  Call Time is 5:30pm in uniform.
