Hello students 8th-11th grade students and families-
Although the attachment was handed out to students last Wed/Thurs, I wanted to make sure everyone had an electronic copy of the letter of intent.
The SM North bands are slated to travel to Orlando, FL, departing Dec 26th or 27th and return Jan. 1st or 2nd.  More details and activities will be announced as plans are confirmed.  It will be a packed week of fun and music in Florida!  Highlights include a halftime performance at the Cheez-It Bowl, a parade running through Disney World, and time to play at Cocoa Beach.  We’re also scheduled to have a music workshop at Disney, as well as spend time at Universal Studios and Island of Adventure.
Although this is an optional trip, all students in Fall/2022 varsity band and JV band can participate.  If you intend to participate, please print the letter of intent, sign and return to Mr. Reed by Friday, Feb. 4th.  No funds are needed at this time, as the first monetary installment is not due until April 15th.
There will be a written cancelation policy posted at www.smnorthbands.org before any money is due.  We are creating contingencies to get money refunded if a student/parent cannot attend due to a Covid issues before the trip.
Parents, we would be thrilled for many of you to travel with us as chaperones!  We usually have a 6:1 student/adult ratio, so we hope many of you can go.  We will offer a price break to chaperones, but we won’t know the exact amount until we know how many students and parents are going.  We were able to offer a $300 price break to chaperones on our last trip, and we’re shooting for the same on this trip.  If you plan on participating as a chaperone, please indicate that on the letter of intent.
Please email me with question, but more information will follow as we get closer to the trip.  Looking forward to a great experience this December!
Mr. Reed
Ms. Fillingham
