The marching arts are not a cheap activity, due to the numerous costs over the course of six months. In order to provide the best experience possible for an educational, fun, and competitively successful season, we ask each family to contribute a yearly marching band "fair share." The IRHS marching band fair share is relatively cheap compared to many successful Arizona marching band programs of our same size!
Typical Marching Band Costs (not an exhaustive list): We cover these costs with a yearly FAIR SHARE:
The fair share will be broken up into three manageable payments throughout the marching season. the exact dates will be emailed out in July.
NO STUDENT WILL EVER BE TURNED AWAY BECAUSE OF MONEY - we just need parental communication and a plan to help families in need.
Fair Share Payments are accepted 3 ways:
Via our new secure online payment system on our website - link coming June 2023
A check written out to “Ironwood Ridge Music Association” and turned into the black box next to the band office in the band room. This can be turned in during any of our summer band rehearsals or when school starts.
Pay with either of these methods in person at Band Camp Check-in on Wednesday, July 19, 2023.
