ALL-DISTRICT BAND EVENT
When: January 31 - February 1, 2020
Where: Spotsylvania High School
6975 Courthouse Rd.
Spotsylvania Courthouse VA 22551
What You Need to Know:
The school is providing buses on Friday January 31 only. You will need to get to Spotsylvania HS on your own on Saturday. If you need help with this, please let me know.
We will leave school at 8:20 – 8:30 on the 31st and stop somewhere (Probably Panera Bread) for breakfast on the way.
The buses will bring you back to Colonial Forge High School. We should be back here around 7:00 pm.
We will need approx. 4 chaperones to ride the buses there and back. You do not have to stay the whole day.
I believe they are providing lunch both days. If you are fussy or have allergies, then make sure you bring something you can eat. Bring snacks for break time and plenty of water. Please NO NUTS OF ANY KIND! I know of at least one person that is severally allergic to nuts so please do not bring any!
The Concert is at 2:00 pm on Saturday February 1 at Spotsylvania High School.
Please fill out/get signatures for Field Trip Permission Form and hand it in to me no later than January 30.
See reverse side for Rehearsal schedule.
