Starting this year, band fees will be $50 per child and $35 for additional children.
The bus fee will be $100 per child. This will include all 5 regular season away games and the All-Star game (6 trips). This is an increase from last year's bus fee, however, that fee only covered 3 away games.
Fees are due by July 26. You can mail your payment to the school (address to the band) or bring it by the school office.
These payments are due earlier than usual because the booster officers and I thought it would help out since there are so many other school expenses in August.
Several people did not turn in a marching uniform at the end of the school year. If you still have yours and you would like to keep the same uniform, please let me know the ID numbers on the jacket, pants and hat. If you turned yours in already and you would like to have the same uniform again, please let me know.
If you need a uniform, I will be in the band office on Tuesdays & Thursdays from 9:00-12:00 the weeks of July 9th and 16th. If you cannot make one of those times, please let me know and we can make arrangements. Everyone will need a uniform to wear for pictures on July 26th.
If you need band shoes, please let me know and I will order them. Shoes are $24 and payment is due by July 26th.
For band camp, the officers suggested that each family bring 1 case of water. You can bring this when you come to try on a uniform or by July 26th.

Band camp attendance is mandatory! It is extremely important that you let me know (via email) beforehand if you will miss any part of camp. Absences will result in 2 laps around the football field per day absent. Tardiness or leaving early will result in 1 lap.
Welcome to the Pickens Academy Pirate Band web page! This site is a work in progress. The plan is to have all features up and running by the time school starts.
Please take a few minutes to submit the Emergency Contact Form and the Field Trip Permission Form. Both of these are located under the Documents tab above. These are due by July 26, 2013 along with a copy of your insurance card. The Emergency Form will be sent as an email to me when you submit it. You will have to print the Permission Form.
Looking forward to seeing everyone at band camp!
