St. Louis Band Trip
The Shorewood Intermediate School Bands, Choirs and Orchestras will be traveling to St. Louis the weekend of May 4-6, 2018. Students will participate in performance clinics at Southern Illinois University-Edwardsville, compete in the Music in the Parks Festival in St. Louis, and do some sight-seeing in the St. Louis area. We will travel by coach bus and stay in a hotel in St. Louis. The trip is being planned by Bob Rogers Travel, with whom we have worked previously.
The purpose of this trip is to provide students with new and exciting musical experiences. It is also our hope that the trip helps bring the students together and strengthens the group dynamic so important in a musical organization.
The cost of the trip is $460.00 broken out into three payments:
- Deposit of $100 due Wednesday, November 15, 2017
- Second payment of $180 due Wednesday, January 17, 2018
- Final payment of $180 or remaining balance, due Wednesday, March 7, 2018
Fundraising opportunities are being provided to help defray the cost of the trip. Money earned through fundraising is applied to the final payment.
Please make your second and third payments through your child’s Infinite Campus account, which shows the final two payments remaining. Also, if your child fundraised through the SBPA fundraisers (ie. wreaths and cheesecakes sales), all students’ remaining St Louis trip payment amounts have already been individually adjusted by the subtracted earned fundraised totals from their trip payments to reflect the amount still owed for the trip.
We need chaperones to make this trip possible! If you are interested in traveling with us to St. Louis, please inform your child’s band teacher. Chaperones will also need to pay $460 preferably on the same payment plan.
We hope every SIS music student may participate in this exciting and educational trip!
Please contact your child’s band teacher for more information.
