Dear Parents,

I hope this letter finds you coming off a fantastic summer and eager to begin the school year. This year the band will be making two out of state trips, first being to Indianapolis for the Bands of America Regional on November 4th.

The marching band fee of $80 is what will pay for your student’s trip to Indianapolis. The fee will not, however, cover snacks on the bus trip out and back as well as a few meals. The boosters are trying to cover as many meals as possible, but the students will be responsible for paying for a couple meals with a final number to be known closer to the event.

The other trip the High School Concert Band Program will be taking is to perform in Chicago Ill. from May 3-6 of 2007. This letter is being sent to alert you to the cost that is required from the student.

Total payment per student is currently estimated at $400. We are strongly encouraging that families set up payment for this in the following manner: Make a payment of $100 on the 29th of September, $100 on the 26th of October, $100 on the 23rd of February and $100 on the 30th of March.

This plan was created so you wouldn’t have to worry about any payments on or around the Christmas season and to break up payment over a few months. If this payment plan will not work for you, please contact Mr. Hansen or Mr. Spayde to set up an alternative plan.

You student has a couple of fund raising opportunities to help defray costs. They can take part in the trash bag sale and/or the magazine sale and the money they make will go into their own account to pay for trips.
