Band Shoe Ordering 

Every student will need the same band shoes. If your student has shoes from last season and they still fit then feel free to use them. If not you will need to place an order for new shoes. We will be placing a bulk order.

Please go to https://dsmahome.org/welcome/parent-information/ click on pay student fees. This is where you can order your student’s band shoes. They are $45. Please be sure to include their name and shoe size. 

Shoe Orders will close on August 25 (the last day of band camp). 

Sizing is based on your student’s sneaker size.
