Treasurer FAQs

Pepperell Band Band Boosters

PLEASE MAKE SURE THAT YOUR STUDENT’S NAME IS INCLUDED ON THE MEMO LINE OF ALL CHECKS.

To whom should I make my check payable?

Please make all checks payable to PHS BAND BOOSTERS.

What forms of payment are acceptable?

The Booster Club can accept both checks and cash.

Where do I send my payments?

You may send your payments to the school with your student. A locked box is provided in the band room so that your students may deposit the payment into the box. If you choose to pay cash, we recommend that you personally hand your payment to the band treasurer. The band cannot be responsible for cash payments placed in the box.

What do my band fees pay for?

Band fees (“fair-share”) are necessary to cover the cost of several expenses because the band does not receive any financial support from the school system. Expenses that are covered by the Booster Club include items such as Festival Fees, instrument repair, judges and clinicians, the cost of music and much more.

Marching Band fees cover a wide variety of items that benefit all members of the marching band. First, the fees cover all of the expenses related to band camp such as clinicians and instructors, the cost of customized drill, customized percussion, and customized music.

Additionally, the band fees pay for transportation of the band to both football games and competitions. Band fees are also used to purchase uniform pieces for new band members, pay for uniform cleaning charges, and to fund an account for the next purchase of new uniforms.
