In an effort to provide your child with the highest quality of music education and the best marching band experience, the Ryle Band Boosters require a fee of $600 per student.
This is a yearlong commitment to support our kids, whether that is in our guard programs, our marching band, our concert band and all other band sponsored programs.
Mr. Elliott strives to provide learning experiences, education and activities for our students. We the boosters are charged with supporting and helping to provide for these endeavors. The graphic below is the best representation to understanding the financial needs of our Ryle Band programs. It places perspective on the idea that our fees do not satisfy the total needs of our programs. It simply cannot be accomplished to the expectations on fees alone.
The fees and fundraising breakdown speak for themselves and all successful band programs have their challenges from time to time. Just as organizations go through an ebb and flow of financial ups and downs, we know our families experience these times as well. Please understand that we want your child involved in an exciting and educational program first. At times band fees are just not financially there, we understand. Our goal will always be to help you in whatever way that we can. Please do not hesitate to speak with Bob Elliott; Tracy Fuchs, Booster President; or Jodi McGinnis, Booster Treasurer and we are more than happy to work with you on a plan which is more representative of the needs of your family and our band family.
