    Eckstein Band Families!

    Welcome to the 2018/19 school year at Eckstein.  Here are a few things to get you started in this supportive community:

    'Opt in' to receive email updates about upcoming events.  You may unsubscribe at any time.  Email band chair at with your student’s name and the band(s) played in.  If you were on the email list last year, just email your child’s new band assignment.

    Submit your child’s band $90 enrichment fee via the Alliance for Education as soon as you are able to, please.  This pays for reeds, equipment, festival fees, music, and so much more!  Visit this link to submit payment easily and quickly online (should automatically pre-fill to select Eckstein Band to receive the funds)


    Do you think you may want to volunteer at some point this year?  Whether you plan on chaperoning or not, get this out of the way now so you are ready!  (volunteering paperwork needs to be completed again each year).  Questions about volunteer paperwork can be directed to Julia Detering at and materials can be found here:


    Looking for more information? Visit the Eckstein Band Families Website for upcoming dates, volunteer opportunities, and other need-to-knows.  Eckstein Band Families is a booster organization & is not affiliated with Seattle Public Schools.
