11/7/14 - Spring Trip Proposal

posted Nov 6, 2014, 7:14 PM by Band Boosters

Please find attached the details for our proposed Spring Trip to Hollywood in March. The students, through the leadership of the Band Council of student officers, decided on a 3-night trip to CA, and the destination specifically was chosen by open vote in class.

Please read through the proposal and have a discussion in your family as to whether this is an opportunity you would like to support. If so, return your Commitment Slip no later than Nov. 20. If the trip will be viable based on those commitments, I will move forward seeking permission from TUHSD Governing Board to travel and start collecting money.

Last time we traveled to CA we did Anaheim and took four ensembles: concert band, percussion ensemble, jazz band, and string orchestra. It was a great time for everyone and the band groups received 2 Golds and a Silver rating at the festival.

Remember that once your fees are paid, any money in your student's Band account may be used toward trip payments, so please consider your fundraising options as you plan your budget. (Chocolate sales, mattress sale, popcorn sale, etc.) Come to our monthly Booster meetings to learn more about those ways you can offset your costs. The next meeting is Thursday, Nov. 13 at 6 pm in the bandroom. We hope your family can make it!
