In a typical year, the cost for students to participate in the CRHS Band is approximately $1,800 per student. The school district provides some funding, but it is essential for the band to raise additional monies to achieve a high level of success.

The school district imposes a $100.00 activity fee to cover transportation costs for the band. That is NOT included in the band fees as it does not go to the band program. You pay this online directly to the school.
