Friends and Family Travelers

There will be opportunities to buy travel packages for friends and family to attend. The same costs apply.

Chaperones

We need 1 chaperone per 10 students. Look for important information about applying to be a chaperone to be released soon.

Rehearsals

We will have some extra rehearsals in preparation for the trip. Plan for some dates after Grand Nationals that will be set aside for music and marching rehearsals. We will have a new piece of music especially for the parade performance.

Roommates

Roommate assignments will be student-driven with band director oversight. There will be a sign-up process for the kids to select their desired roommates. Rooms are NOT co-ed. Girls and Boys will be in separate rooms.
