Marshwood Music Travel
The MHS Music Department has been approved to travel to Orlando, Florida in February 2019. Both the band and chorus will be performing at Disney at a location that is to be determined. Both groups will also participate in workshops run by Disney professionals. Around our performance and workshop times, students will be able to visit and enjoy the Disney parks and Universal Studios. We plan to have a chaperone ratio of no more than eight students to every one chaperone to help keep students safe and regular check-ins will be scheduled. We do not allow students to travel in groups of any less than four people. The cost of the trip is currently estimated at $1,460. This was been presented to us as the highest possible cost and hopefully as air fare and hotel rates solidify we may see that number drop.
If you are interested, please review the following information immediately as reservations need to be made very soon. Students and chaperones must register by Friday May 4th and a non-refundable $100.00 deposit will be due by May 18th. If you are interested in travel insurance there is an attached flyer. The cost of the optional insurance is $61.50. Please understand that you are not required to purchase insurance but payments to the travel company are non refundable without it. All payments will be made directly to our travel company (Bob Rogers Travel). Additional payments will be required over the course of next fall. If your student raises money with the scheduled fundraisers, that amount will be applied to the cost of their trip. In case of financial hardship, please see Mr. Graichen or Ms. West to work out a deposit/payment schedule. We want everyone to be able to go!
We are also looking for approximately 8-15 people who would be interested in chaperoning along with the staff members. If interested in being a chaperone, please contact Mr. Graichen or Ms. West. Please see the additional pages for a sample itinerary, travel insurance information, and payment information. If after reviewing these materials you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact us by phone at 384-4500 or email at firstname.lastname@example.org or email@example.com.
We will be having some fundraiser nights at area restaurants. We will be hosting a night at Margaritas in Dover, NH on July 25th and one at Panera in Dover, NH on August 10th. Please see the flyers below for more information. You will need to present these when you order for the Music Department to receive credit.
The Music Boosters would like to form a fundraising committee to help with the trip. There are quite a few ideas but we need help organizing and sharing the work. Please email Jen Latta to volunteer.
