I am pleased to inform you that we have organized a trip for Junior Concert Band students to the Strathmore Music Festival on April 1, 2019. This is the festival that we have been preparing for, and therefore is a mandatory excursion for marks in this class.
As it is a mandatory activity, there are no fees for this trip. Please provide consent for me to take your students for them to participate for marks in this activity by returning the attached form by March 28, 2019. The Medical Report must be complete, especially with Alberta Health Care Number or similar health care insurance information. The student must also sign the permission form as must the parent or guardian. We must have forms in by March 28, 2019 so that we can complete our bookings for all trip activities.
We are also in need of at least 3 chaperones for this trip. Please fill out the Chaperone Participation Form if you are interested and able to chaperone. Mr. Windsor will assist you with all the paperwork required of chaperones to make the process as comfortable as possible.
