Plans for Spring trip 2015 to Orlando

Pitman High School

Department of Instrumental Music

June 20th , 2014

Dear Instrumental Music Parent:

            The Pitman High School Department of Instrumental Music is presently planning a performance tour to Disney World in Orlando, FL to participate in the Magic Music Days from February 25th- March 1st 2015.  This tour will include a performance at one of the Disney Resort parks and an educational workshop taught by expert Disney musicians.  This tour includes the following:

u       Airfare through Southwest Airlines
u       All Meals!!! We are using the Disney Dining program
u       Admission to each of the Disney Theme parks
u        Workshop and Recording session
u        Performance at one of the Walt Disney World Theme Parks
u        Hotel Accommodations at the All Star Music Resort - 4 students to a room (option of 2 available for additional cost.)

The schedule is currently in the process of being finalized, and I am confident that every child will be interested in going on this trip.  The projected final cost for the trip is 750.00-800.00 for students.  Parents who are interested in attending this trip should feel free to send in a deposit.  .  The total cost of the trip will not be finalized until we determine the exact number of students traveling with the group.  I am attaching a proposed payment schedule for your review.  It is our goal to make the cost of the trip as low as possible for each student.
            I would like to provide the opportunity for EVERY child to participate in this amazing performance tour.  The Pitman Panther Band Association will be providing plenty of fundraising opportunities for your child to offset the cost.  Since this is a performance tour, we really need the entire ensemble to travel with us.  We have financial assistance available, so please let us know if you need any help at all.

            To this end, we must have a firm and definite commitment, from everyone intending to go on this trip in the form of a NON REFUNDABLE deposit of $75.00 due on or before September 3rd.  Feel free to send it in earlier to reserve your spot.
