How much do I still owe? When is my next payment due?
Your balance due and payment dates can be found by logging into your parent account on DanceStudio-Pro. If you have an inquiry about what you still owe, please contact April Kochon at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Where do I send my payment?
Payments can be made online by credit card (with a 3% convenience fee) through your parent account on DanceStudio-Pro.
If you want to pay by cash or check, please put the payment in an envelope, write on it your student’s name, their group and what the payment is for (this is very important information!) and drop it off in the black mailbox outside of Mrs. Snyder’s office door. For check payments, please write your student’s name, group and what the payment is for on the Memo line as well.
To whom should I make checks out?
Checks should be made out to CHHS for Registration or Travel and to CHHS Choral Boosters for Costumes. It is VERY IMPORTANT to put your child’s name, as well as what the payment is for, in the MEMO section of the check. If you are combining payments, then also designate how much is going to which item (i.e. $75 for costumes; $150 for travel) in order to help us maintain accurate account balances.
Are there fundraisers to help offset the costs for travel and costumes?
YES! In addition to all of the Choral Booster fundraising activities, there ARE individual fundraiser sales that take place during the fall and throughout the year. Program Ad Sales (see above in the very first section!) are a great way to earn money for your child’s account. There are also additional opportunities such as selling Mixed Bag products, restaurant cards and other items throughout the year. More details on each fundraiser will be emailed and posted on the Parent/Family Facebook page when the fundraisers start. Email or call/text Marsha Tolbert at (804) 833-3170 for more information on fundraising activities.
Do I have to volunteer?
Yes, YES.......YES. All families are REQUIRED to volunteer at MASS and at least one other event during the year. We STRONGLY encourage families to come help out at any and all other volunteering opportunities that arise! We send out SignUp Genius online sign-up forms for every event. See the SignUp Genius page for our current volunteer needs or email email@example.com to ask where we could use help.
How can Band Parents be involved and help?
Band parents are welcome to join in any show choir or Choral Booster events. Please email Lenora Dean at firstname.lastname@example.org to get involved!
Can artwork be made for advertisers to go into the program?
