Needing a way to help pay for all those marching band fees? Lehi Roller Mills is a great way for your student to earn money to help pay for those fees. Students receive 50% of the purchase price to be used towards their fees. Forms were handed out Monday June 20 during marching band or available on the blog. Orders and money are due back on Wednesday July 6th. Product should be here around August 8th.

Note: Checks can be made out to either you or the school. However, if a check is made out to the school and it is returned for any reason, your student's account is blocked from receiving checks and you are charged the returned check fee.

Taylorsville Dayzz Parade
