Mary Poppins & Disney Trip
Dear Music Family:

Last night, Mrs. Richardson and I saw the Ogunquit Playhouse Production of Mary Poppins.   It was INCREDIBLE and we drove away thinking……how can our kids see this production?  SO, we will be at school on Wednesday, August 20th from 5-6:30pm for two purposes:

1. Collect Raider Card $and give out other cards with a  pink printed or written permission slip from your parents that says they are responsible for the cost of the cards if you lose them.  The cards are $10 each and you will earn a $5 profit per card.  

2. We are attempting another field trip which is not during school time and will be Friday, August 29th during the Labor Day Weekend.  The cost of the ticket and the bus to the Ogunquit Playhouse to see MARY POPPINS is $30.00 which is an incredibly inexpensive price to see an AWESOME stage production similar to the size of our stage at SHS.  There are many special effects and flying which is unbelievable.    BUT….I need a FIRM commitment and $30 by this WEDNESDAY AUGUST 20th at the school with your money/check made out to SHS Music in hand to buy you the ticket.    If it is IMPOSSIBLE to get me the money that day, please contact me by cell phone 674-7293 if you are POSITIVELY sure that you are going.   We are considering many shows for this upcoming school year and this is definitely in the running as a possibility so if you are interested in the show like last year when we were and still are considering FOOTLOOSE on our list of shows and a few others……you should come and see the show because it is awesome like……. as great as our productions of Phantom, Peter Pan and Sound of Music.  You will love it too which is why I am attempting this field trip again at such a low cost compared to the price of our seats in the back section last night that were priced at $62.00 each……so this is quite a big savings for you and an awesome deal to include transportation too.   The first 50 people to sign up and pay will be considered for 1 bus and then we will see if we can use another bus or van……to transport a few others if we need to.   COST:    $30

We will meet on Friday, August 29th at 5:45pm, leave at 6:00pm.
The show starts at 8:00pm and is over at 11:00pm.  We will be returning to SHS around 11:45pm.

3. We currently have 110 tickets reserved for Wednesday, October 15th Matinee of Addams Family for $30 as well.  

Also, we are going to have a trip night meeting where you and your parents will hear about the trip to Orlando Florida to Disney World and the fund raisers that can help you earn a discounted trip on Wednesday, September 17th from 6:30-8:00pm.  If you are planning to travel with us, IT IS MANDATORY that you and a parent attend.

The trip is scheduled for April 25th-May 1st  2015.   

IT IS GOING TO BE AN EXCITING YEAR J      “H”      “R”     Mr. Goodwin
