Letter about Marine World Trip


Dear Students and Parents

The students and I are very excited about the upcoming trip to Marine World Discovery Kingdom in May! In the past, we have participated in the Music in the Parks Festivals consisting of a morning performance at a school in Vacaville, and an awards ceremony and afternoon in the park. Over the years, many students and parents have asked why we couldn't play in the park itself. This year we were fortunate enough to secure one of the coveted performance times in Discovery Kingdom's "Celebrate the Arts" Program. We will be performing in the Oasis Theatre at 12:00 on May 15! All WMS Honor Band students are invited to attend. We are absolutely delighted because this "in park" performance opportunity will actually be substantially cheaper than the participation in the Music in the Parks Festival. The cost of the trip will be $40 - $45: $24 for the Marine World ticket and $16 - $21 for bus transportation. (We will be able to determine the exact cost when we have an accurate count of attendees.) The cost of the Music in the Parks trip would have been $70 per student! We are also happy to purchase additional tickets for family members at the reduced rate, but will need to reserve bus space for our performers. We are so grateful that we are able to provide this enhanced performance opportunity at a far better price. In addition, we will have opportunities for students to earn their ticket and transportation by selling Otter Pops after school.
In order to secure the tickets and bus transportation for the "Celebrate the Arts" program, we need to get an accurate count of attendees. Please fill out the form attached to this letter and return it no later than March 26th. Parents, please consider joining us as a chaperone. Because of the logistical concerns in performing in the park, we will need plenty of support!! Thanks!
