On Monday (Oct. 2) the choir will start their fall cookie dough and popcorn fundraiser with The Goodies Factory! Money raised goes toward the choir's general fund and helps support and maintain the reputation of excellence enjoyed by Orchard View Choir.
If a HS student is planning on attending the NYC trip in April, $5 per item sold will be credited toward their trip payment.
On Monday, the students will receive two brochures, an item order sheet, and this cover letter.
This fundraiser is a fantastic way to support the Orchard View choir program and enjoy some delicious treats!
Permission slips for the 2018 HS NYC trip will b rolled out this week (by grade level). Seniors will have priority as this will be their last year in choir. The permission slip includes a packet about the trip and our tour group GTP.
As an educator, this will be my second trip to NYC with a choir (my first was in 2016 with Whitehall). I know that the price is high, but I can assure you that the trip is worth it! Our schedule in NYC is jammed full of musical, educational, and fun activities (see packet for details). My single most memorable memory from high school is when I traveled with the band to Florida. I built friendships and made memories that I cherish to this day. We will be doing two fundraisers this year to help student pay for their trip (one in October and one in January).
All important information is on the permission slips, including: price, pay dates, and trip details. Parents wishing to travel as chaperones must pay the same price as students (you will be included in all activities!). The trip will be limited to 50 students/chaperones, so if you are interested in the trip make your first (down) payment as soon as possible!
I look forward to an awesome year of music making!
