Marching Band Fair Share

Marching Band Fair Share

Marching Band Fair Share is just that...a fair share that we ask of each participating student so that together we can provide a full and complete Marching Band experience. This fair share fee covers everything from apparel, to uniforms, to music transportation costs for each event, to competition registration fees, and more!


It is a once-a-year payment...we will not ask for more as the season goes by. You can either pay the full amount all at once, or pay in three installments as described in the email from Mr. Crotts.


If you would like to donate additional money to help sponsor another student's Fair Share fees, you can also do that.  Under student name for this option, just type Sponsorship. Thank you for your devotion to the EAHS Marching Band.

  • FAQ

    Question: What is Fair Share?


    Answer: Fair Share is an amount of money that we ask each student to pay to help offset operational costs for Marching Band. Everything we do costs money beyond a classroom budget…custom drill for the field, custom music, show t-shirts, uniforms, uniform accessories, props for the show, instrument repair and maintenance, and transportation to and from our many events…just to name a few! We spend thousands of dollars on these necessities to provide a quality experience and ensure success for our students.


    Question: What else might my student have to pay for?


    Answer: Only their shoes to march in, which cost $37.00, and any individual items for their instrument (mallets/drumsticks for percussionists, valve oil/slide grease for brass, reeds for woodwinds). Fair Share provides everything else that they will need for a season, including all apparel, music, and transportation.


    Question: Do I have to pay all at once?


    Answer: No! There is an installment plan outlined in this year’s Marching Band contract with online payment options as well.


    Question: Will I be asked for additional money during the season?


    Answer: No! We always work to fundraise as a group, but you will not be asked to pay any more money directly during the season.


    Question: My student wants to march, but we have a financial need. Can they still participate?


    Answer: Yes…contact Mr. Crotts. He will work with you individually to ensure that your student can march and that they have everything they need to be a successful member of the 2022-2023 Marching Band. There are ways to work around financial needs!


    Many of the items covered by fair share are paid in a lump sum, at the beginning of the marching band season.  As a result, refunds are not offered.
