Music, Meet Math! Math, Meet Music! – Mrs. Rupp's Class
Rippon Middle School Instrumental Music Fees

Parents and Students,

                All band and orchestra students at Rippon Middle School will be required to pay a participation fee for the 2020-2021school year.  The fee will be used to cover essential materials and costs necessary for a quality instrumental music program to function and provide a superior education for all students.  The 6th-grade fee will also cover the cost of the music department polo required for all public performances. Please understand that Rippon is not alone in requiring a participation fee and that our fees are in fact much lower than most other schools in this region.  Also, know that the fee does not fully cover the true cost for each student.

6th grade - $30

Includes the new performance polo, method book, supplemental materials/music, and instrument maintenance (rosin, bow hair, and strings)

7th grade - 15$

 Includes the method book, supplemental materials/music, and instrument maintenance (rosin, bow hair, and strings)

8th grade - $20

Includes the method book, supplemental materials/music, and instrument maintenance (rosin, bow hair, and strings), and district assessment costs (event registration and transportation).
