Each marching band student who is financially able to is asked to make a $500 pledge to the Royal Alliance’s expenses for the year.
Lack of ability will not exclude any students from participation in the marching band. However, participation in this pledge is crucial to a successful season.
Other options are available to help put the Royal Alliance on the road!
For more information, please contact Mr. C or the AME president Tracey Stephens. Checks can be made to Alliance for Music Education.
