Washington, D.C. Information

The 2010 Music Department Spring Trip is scheduled for Washington, D.C. All parents should parents should please look over the information posted on the right sidebar. Though not required to participate, all music students are encouraged to go on the trip, which for some will be a once in a lifetime opportunity. Clicking the documents marked Washington D.C. Itinerary and Washington D.C. Summary and Costs will download important information regarding the trip. Please note that the Itinerary is a work in progress and may change over the course of the year. A final itinerary will be given prior to departure.

Lastly, in order to get an idea of how many may be participating, please email Mr. Carroll whether or not your son(s) will be going on the trip. The more students that go, the less expensive the trip will be! I am greatly looking forward to this trip and I hope you will seriously consider having your son go with us. The memories that he will create will last a lifetime!
