Financial Commitment

The Parkview Band Boosters provides the main funding source for the PHS Band. An incredible amount of money is needed to operate a large, successful program. The expected annual financial contribution is as follows:

  • Concert Only (people who are not in marching band) $160
  • Marching Band Members
    • All Members: $50 Non-Refundable Registration Deposit
    • All Members: $670 (including the deposit)
    • Percussion Members: +$150
    • Color Guard: +$150

Each family is expected to pay this amount each year. The Band Boosters offer many fundraising opportunities throughout the year to help students and parents meet this obligation. If your family is experiencing a temporary financial hardship, please contact a director at your convenience so we can craft an individualized plan that will allow you to make payments that fit your budget.
