Jazz Band Dance and Silent Auction – Thank you!


The Fundraising Committee would like to thank the entire Lafayette Band Family for such a successful and fun fundraising event.  It was wonderful to see so many students and families and we raised over $5,000 on the Silent Auction – thank you!!

Our talented Jazz Students set the mood for the evening with fantastic music.  Thank you to the many students who contributed to the Section Baskets (they turned out great!), brought food and supported your band by attending the event.

Thank you to the parent volunteers for all of your hard work – from decorations, transporting tables and chairs, coordinating and serving food, printing, computer work, exquisite craftsmanship on “One-of-A-Kind-Lafayette-Band-Items”, set-up & clean-up, soliciting donations, promoting the event, behind the scene details, jumping in wherever needed, working as a Team and most important – bidding on Silent Auction items.  Thank you for supporting your students and the band program!

A huge “Thank You” to all of our local businesses who donated products and services to help make our fundraising event a success.  Next time you are in one of these fine establishments, please tell them you are from Lafayette Band and thank them for their generous support.

Thank you again,
The Fundraising Committee

Family Payment Agreements


PLEASE NOTE: Family payments form the basis of the annual budget.  Our instructors and staff rely on us for their earned pay.  However, we are unable to provide payment to these individuals due to many families who have not completed the agreement. 

Family payments for 2016-2017 are $1,100 and were due in August – or an additional late payment of $150 for the “deferred payment schedule” was added per the payment agreement. All payments should have been completed by November 15, 2016.

For those who have not paid, or are behind in their payments, please be responsible – others are relying on you.  If you have questions or concerns, please contact Mr. Smith at chuck.smith@fayette.kyschools.us or 859-396-3311 for a confidential payment arrangement.
