BUSCH GARDENS REMINDERS
It is so hard to believe that it’s time for our Busch Gardens trip.
We have had such a great year! I am very excited to be taking this trip with such a wonderful group of kids. I wanted to send home some reminders about this upcoming trip.
Schedule for the day:
I will need each student to arrive at GMS at 7:45am on Saturday, May 2nd. We need to depart by 8:00 am. We will return to GMS by 9:00pm that evening. I am asking for each student to bring something for breakfast that morning. We will not have time to stop for breakfast.
What to bring:
Your child will need money for lunch and dinner as these meals are not provided in the cost of the trip. I would recommend about $40.00 to cover meals and any drinks they may need through the day.
Many of the rides require shoes. I would encourage your child not to wear flip-flops or sandals. Their feet will also appreciate it at the end of the day. Bring a change of clothes; shorts, t-shirt, sunscreen, & comfortable shoes.
What to wear:
All GMS chorus students should wear their chorus outfits for the competition, as we want to make a GREAT impression.
Boys: Black pants, white dress shirt, necktie, dress shoes.
Girls: Black pants or skirt, white blouse, dress shoes.
Students will perform at:
Tabb High School, 4431 Big Bethel Road, Yorktown, VA at 10:30a.m.
Once our performance is over, students will be allowed to change clothes. So, PLEASE bring a change of clothes for the remainder of the day.
The awards ceremony will be in the San Marco Theater located in Italy at 7:00pm. Following the ceremony, all chorus students will load the buses to return home. If you do not intend to ride the bus home, please send a note indicating such. I estimate we should get back to GMS by 9:00pm.
Once again, I am looking forward to a great trip! We will be there the same day as the GMS Band, so this should be lots of fun. All parents who are attending, please let me know, as I will need chaperones to help with the students during the day. We have a total of 48 chorus students, so if I have at least 12 chaperones, that would be 4 students per chaperone.
If you have any questions, please feel free to contact me.
