Dear TAG Parents,
We are so honored to have won the ICHSA Southeast Semifinal this past Saturday night. With this comes the major task of coming up with the money to make this trip happen. It makes it even more difficult since we have already made the commitment to attend and compete at the National A Cappella Convention in Memphis just one weekend before the New York trip. We need all parents on board to help make this trip a possibility.
We are going to continue the payment schedule for Memphis. You can find this on the Memphis itinerary in the DOCUMENT section of this site. We are then going to start fundraising to get everyone to New York City with as little extra payments as possible.
As of now, the travel and hotel expenses for the New York Trip are at $540. I'm really happy with the airfare of $213.10 that we got from United. I'm still waiting to get responses from JetBlue, Southwest and Delta, so it could drop lower if they come with a better price. New York City hotel room are going to be the most expensive part of the trip. I'm also working on this. We have an option to stay for really cheap at a historic hotel that can be scary, or pay more for a hotel that we know will be decent.
I would like to have a parent meeting to discuss fundraising and trip specifics, as well as answer questions about Memphis and the upcoming album.
We need to have this meeting as soon as possible to get started. I would like to have the meeting this Thursday, Feb 18 at 6:00 p.m. in the choir room. The meeting should be no longer than 1 hour long, because Conner has a baseball game at 7:45 that night. It is really important that we have the vast majority of parents there. Please have your student text whether you are able to attend this meeting on Thursday or not.
Congrats to your students for an amazing accomplishment!!!
