I am very happy to announce that plans are well underway for the Streamwood High School Band Department to travel to Orlando Florida during the summer of 2016!!! This is going to be an incredible opportunity filled with fun AND performance opportunities. We will be visiting ALL of the Disney World Parks, performing a concert and a parade, as well as visiting Universal Studios. A trip like this creates lasting memories for all of the students, and allows them to experience a level of performance beyond the normal classroom experiences.
In order to begin the process, we are holding a parent and student information meeting Tuesday February 10th at 7pm in the SHS band room. At this meeting we will discuss the planning and payment process, review the calendar and when payments are due, share fundraising ideas, review a sample itinerary, and answer any questions you might have.
If you are nervous about the price of the trip, or do not think you will be able to afford it, please try and come to the meeting so that you can learn about how fundraising can ultimately pay for 100% of your trip cost. Ultimately, there is a possibility for every student to be able to go on this trip FOR FREE, if they are able to fundraise enough money.
I have attached the information sheet that was sent home with the students last week. Please feel free to email me if you have any questions or concerns.
Looking forward to seeing you at this meeting,
