Dear THS Music Students and Parents,


The Towson High School Music Boosters is sponsoring their 5th biennial performance trip to Disney World Resorts in Orlando, Florida. The dates of the trip are Friday, March 23, 2018 through Tuesday, March 27, 2018. Although the trip is about 11 months from now, we want to make families aware for planning purposes. Students who attend this trip will miss 2.5 days of school (Friday afternoon, Monday and Tuesday). Students will be responsible for completing make up work prior to the trip. Please double check your calendar.

 

The trip will be 5 days and 4 nights. The expected cost is $800 per student. About 50 parent chaperones will be needed and will be charged a reduced cost of $600 per chaperone. Additionally, 5 registered nurses will be needed (one per bus). If you are a parent that would consider participating in our trip as a nurse, please email Mr. Olin, jolin@bcps.org.


Fundraising: Two Music Boosters-sponsored fundraisers will occur for students who wish to reduce the cost of their trip. A citrus sale will be held in September and a wreath sale will be held in November. Additionally, financial aid can be requested once we return to school in the Fall.

 

Special Notes: As in past years, students enrolled in Choir, Orchestra and Marching Band will be invited on this trip. Students enrolled in Wind Ensemble (i.e., “Band” class) or Percussion Ensemble should join marching band if they wish to participate in the trip. The marching band sign up meeting will be held on Wednesday, May 31, 2017 in the THS Auditorium at 7-8pm (student and parent must attend this meeting). Additionally, a small number of band students (wind, brass, and percussion) may be selected to perform with the orchestra if they are upperclassmen who participated in All-Honors or All-State.

 

Disney is strict on the number of students allowed to perform in the Orchestra (100 student maximum) and Choir (90-110 student maximum). There is no limit to the number of students in the Marching Band. Because of this, students enrolled in Wind Ensemble and Percussion Ensemble should consider joining the marching band as their primary avenue for attending the trip.


Students who are subjected to Category 1, 2, or 3 disciplinary action from school administration as described in the BCPS Student Handbook may not be allowed to attend the trip with no refund given.
