NYC ALL Band Trip - March 25th
Final send off meeting March 22nd 6:30pm - NHS Cafeteria
Students will wear ALL black for concert performance. Casual black is fine as they will be touring NYC and not going back to the hotel during the day. No tuxes and dresses. Black tennis shoes are OK! Black t-shirts are OK.
Attire (per Music Travel) for Broadway show day: "Broadway, and I feel society in general, is a little more casual than we were two years ago because of all that’s happened - so I wouldn’t even say polos, collars, dresses, or shirts. Just smart casual would suffice."
Load busses Friday March 25th at 2:30pm. Leave NHS at 3pm.
Students/chaperones may carry a string backpack during the day that may be left on the bus with change of clothes/shoes.
Check email for bus lists, group sign ups and medication information. Please email Mr Crossley if you have not received this info or have questions..
Check your email and calendar (also on Canvas - ask your student) for upcoming after school rehearsals! Prep for ISSMA Contest is in full swing!
