Disney 2021!

The high school band will be traveling to Walt Disney World in Orlando, Florida during Spring Break 2021, which is the week of March 28, 2021. As in years past, the band plans to perform at a parade in Walt Disney World and take part in a fun, educational music clinic where they will get to record a selection of music from a classic Disney movie and perform it along with a clip from the movie.

Total cost of the trip at this point is estimated to be $1000 and includes everything for the trip including all meals. Parents or family interested in traveling with the band as chaperones will also pay $1000. Contact Mr. Maxey or Nessa Cercone if interested.

Students interested in participating must turn in a non-refundable deposit of $150 by April 6th, 2020. This money is needed by the boosters to make important deposits on bus transportation, reserve hotels, etc.

Attached below is a sample, very tentative schedule for the trip. At this stage in the planning process, several details will likely change.
