Parent Meeting Recap/ Choir Announcements

posted Dec 1, 2017, 9:31 AM by Eldorado Choirs
Good Morning Choir Families,

I hope your week is going good thus far. Thank you to those parents who came to the meeting last night. It was good to see you all. For those of you not in attendance, just a quick email to recap the Trip details we announced.

Nashville Trip:
We have finalized our trip costs. At the beginning of the school year we estimated that our trip would be approximately $1000. Flights unfortunately were more than we were anticipating. We were able to negotiate a better price with Southwest with the amazing help of our Secretary Linda Fraschilla. The hotel does not offer a free breakfast so our food allowance increased over what we normally allot. However because our return flight is in the morning of February 25 we reduced some meal allowance there. So with all that said the final trip cost will be $1200.00 

All trip payments must be paid in full by February 1st in order for your child to be able to attend. Also please remember they have to be grade eligible as a requirement from EHS. This is outlined in the Choir Handbook. Please remind your students that this is a requirement. We have the final list of students committed to go. All funds are non refundable for any reason. The last three payments (December, January and February) will reflect the balance due minus the October and November payments already invoiced.  If you have any questions regarding this please let me know!

Parents Traveling:
If you wish to travel with your student, all accommodations will need to be made personally. Unfortunately as a result of the Boosters having to absorb the cost of extra airline tickets from canceled travelers last year, we are not be able to make travel plans for parents. The Hotel we are staying at is the Gaylord Opryland Resort. We will be flying Southwest to Nashville leaving Wednesday (2-21) morning and returning Sunday (2-25) morning. We can provide more details on the flights as we get it. 

The chaperone positions will be filled with Board members first as there are certain positions that need to go on the trip. If there are available chaperone positions open we will start the interview process for parent chaperones who have an APS Background check completed. But not to worry, if you can not chaperone, you are still VERY welcome to travel along with us!!

La Quad Event Saturday November 18th:
We are participating in the La Quad event being held in the gym on Saturday. Call time for show choir students is 6pm in M4. They will be performing at 7pm. Entry is $5.00 at the door. 

That is all for now, I will update everyone on the December happenings next week. Have a great day!
