The Mokena Music Department is planning a trip to Orlando, Florida in early 2018. Attached you will find a copy of the sample itinerary and a deposit form. The students participating in the trip will depart Mokena Junior High School near the end of the school day on Friday, January 12 and return late the evening of Tuesday, January 16, 2018. They will miss one full day of school.
If your child plans to attend this trip, please complete the attached deposit form and include your $100 payment (checks made payable to the Mokena Music Boosters) to Mrs. Bussean, Mr. Makropoulos or Mrs. Cheney by August 31. The remaining payments will be split into four: September 15 ($325), October 15 ($325), November 15 ($325) and December 15 (remaining balance).
Students will have the opportunity to participate in two more IBA fundraisers this Fall to help offset the cost of the trip. For families new to the MJH Music Department: IBA fundraisers are opportunities in which students can choose to participate to raise money for their own Mokena Music account. Money raised through IBA fundraisers can be used to pay for Mokena Music Department expenses, and therefore can be used for the Florida trip.
The band and choir students attending this trip will be performing at a Disney park, participating in workshops through the Disney Performing Arts Youth Programs, and will be experiencing many musical performances.
