8th Grade DSO Field Trip
Special EventTime - 8:30 am - 2:00 pm
Hello, 8th grade orchestra families!
I hope this message finds you well. Below you will find some exciting information regarding our annual 8th grade orchestra field trip that will be taking place in March:
The 8th grade orchestra will be taking a field trip to Orchestra Hall in Detroit to see the Detroit Symphony Orchestra perform on Friday, March 22. We will be leaving Mill Creek around 8:30am and returning to school around 2:00pm (eating packed lunches in Detroit before we make the trip back to Dexter). As they will be missing most of the day, students will need to check in with their teachers ahead of time to make sure they know what work they will be responsible for making up.
I know that this date is the day before spring break, but it is the only date that would work for us to make this field trip happen this year due to my maternity leave. I sincerely apologize to any students/families who will miss this trip due to already scheduled travel plans for spring break. I thank you in advance for your understanding!
Tickets are $6.50, and payment needs to be submitted to PaySchools by Thursday, February 14 by 3:00pm. The item on PaySchools will shut down at 3pm and you will not be able to submit payment after this. Please note that this deadline is coming up quickly! If you need any assistance with this payment, please let me know and I am happy to help. Here is the direct link to the item on PaySchools: https://parent.payschools.com/cat.asp?id=1F59E6165C2B43B1A62CE46E6EC5BBE9
Additionally, the Orchestra Boosters have graciously offered to help lower the cost of the tickets by paying for half of the ticket cost - how wonderful! (And what a deal to see the DSO!) Thank you, Orchestra Boosters!
I am also looking for 3 parent chaperones (free admission) for this trip - please follow this link to sign up: https://www.signupgenius.com/go/10C0B4DABAD29A1FF2-8thgrade2 First come, first served. Thank you for considering helping out!
Please let me know if you have questions or concerns. I am looking forward to sharing this wonderful experience and performance by the DSO with the 8th grade orchestra! 🙂
