I understand and consent to the responsibilities outlined in the Distict's Student Code of Conduct. I also understand and agree that my child shall be held accountable for the behavior and consequences outlined in the Student Code of Conduct at school, and at school-sponsored or school-related activites. Students involved in extracurricular activity are held to a higher standard of conduct. PISD views participation in extracurricular activities as a privilege not a right. I understand that any student who violates the Student Code of Conduct shall be subject to disciplinary action. This includes any misconduct, regardless of time or location that would reflect negatively upon representing Plano ISD in the Murphy MS Band Program.
Please enter your child's first and last name.
Please enter Parent/Guardian full name as acknowledgment of the above stated guideline.
Our band program has expenses not supported by local or district funds. We must rely on our students and parents to fundraise or donate money for our program needs. All funds raised by students are placed in our Activity Account and used for the direct benefit of our students. Expenses for our program include: clinicians, judges, entry fees, bus transportation, music, staffing for specific aspects of our program, and instrument/supply purchases.
Fundraising is optional. We greatly rely on participant support to continue offering an excellent experience for all of our students. Thanks for your generosity!
Option 1: March A Thon (a required event on September 15 with an optional fundraising component) Our goal is for each student to collect $60.00 of pledges or donations
Option 2: Catalog Sales (September 13-24) we make 40% of all sales. Our goal is for each student to sell 10 items.
Option 3: Combination of any of the above.
