So, to put in perspective, we do this:
HS - Instrument Fee 35.00; Supply Fee 30.00; marching shoes 35.00; Show shirt and DriFit shirt 20.00, for a total of 120.00. After their freshman year it lowers to 75.00 if they don't grow out of their shoes or DriFit. We also give our kids opportunity to pay all or part of their fees through the fall fundraiser. My initial inquiry was to see if the fees are in line with other rural area small schools, or not. Not to start a philosophical argument.
