District Honor Band
Congratulations to our students selected for District Honor Band on February 17-18 at Grissom High School. Information for the event can be found here
Friday, March 31st is the next Payment- $400 per traveler.
What do I need to do right now?
1. Get your passport now! It should be valid 6 months past our return date!
2. Investigate your best option for overseas phone possibilities. Each phone company has different options. You will need to have access to phone communication while you are in London!
3. Research and investigate your credit card and financial options. Each bank and card is different. Make sure your card won't lock you out when you get to London
Can I still sign up?
Yes - but you must pay for all missed deposits on your first payment or else you can't be locked into the trip. At some point, there will be price increases, room assignments done, airline flights arranged, and other logistical things related to the trip completed. After we do those things, anyone added will just be accommodated the best we can. Our contract is for 150 people so we must be atleast at this number of travelers. If you have not signed up, the sooner you can do this the better for us because numbers dictate many things!
When do you have to declare if you are doing land only or full trip?
I don't have an exact date, but my best estimate is early Fall 2023.
London information can be found in our google drive. Click here to access google drive
