Hello Band of Silver,
Welcome to Game Day! We’re all excited about tonight’s Battle of Oakwood. The students are ready, and we hope to see you there cheering them on.
This is a reminder of something else coming up very quickly: The deadline for the Chicago trip deposit.
As you probably remember from the letter distributed to parents at the pre-Band Camp meeting, The Band of Silver will be traveling to Chicago during Spring Break 2016 (3/31-4/5). Students will perform at the Field Museum of Natural History. They’ll also get to attend the Chicago Symphony, the Blue Man Group, and a Broadway-type show.
The cost of the trip is $750 per person. Besides students, we currently have room for 30 adults from the West Hall Band family. The trip cost will include all activities, as well as transportation via motor coach, 3 breakfasts, and 3 dinners.
In order to confirm our numbers, we need to collect a deposit from everyone who’s planning to go (students and adults alike) of $150.
This deposit of $150 is due Tuesday, September 1.
Please do not send cash. All checks should be written to “West Hall Band Trip” and sealed in an envelope with your student’s name and “Band Trip” on the outside. They can be turned in by your student to Mr. P on or before Tuesday.
What we want more than anything is for every student who wants to go to Chicago, to be able to go. If you have any questions or concerns, or a financial hardship that you need to discuss with Mr. P, please feel free to email him at firstname.lastname@example.org.
