2013 Senior High Band Trip to Florida

I am very excited to announce that we are finally taking deposits for the April 2013 Band trip to Disney World!  Please fill out the Permission Slip, which I have attached below for your information!

On Thursday, April 11, 2013, the EWG Senior High Band will travel to Orlando, Florida to perform at Walt Disney World in the “Festival Disney” program.  Our students will compete with bands from across the United States, and will return to Rhode Island on Sunday evening, April 15, 2013. 

At the present time, we require a deposit of $100.00 to reserve airfare for this trip. Please fill out the permission slip included with this letter, and make your checks payable to POPS.  This deposit is due no later than June 15 to reserve a spot on the trip.  Participation will be based on a first come, first served basis except in cases where instrumentation of the band would be adversely affected in competition.  Please mail your deposit to: EWG Music Department attn. Mr. Charest, 930 Nooseneck Hill Road, W. Greenwich, RI 02817.  The total cost for this trip is currently estimated at $1400.00 per student.  This price is subject to change, and should only serve as a reference.

I am in need of several chaperones for this trip.  I have run this trip in the past with efficiency, making the roles of the chaperone less burdensome than one might think (actually lots of fun).  Please consider traveling with us.  Chaperones will travel at a considerably reduced cost (usually half price), but for now should also send an airfare deposit of $100.00.  All chaperones will have to submit to a federal criminal background check as required by the EWG School Department policy for overnight trips. 

If you have any questions or concerns regarding the trip, please contact me immediately.  It is my ultimate goal to take every student that wishes to go regardless of cost, and I am willing to work hard to meet that goal.  Please inform me as soon as possible if you may need assistance with the cost of this trip.
