Dear Parent/ Guardian,

Though our holiday concerts are over, we are as busy as ever in the HMS music
department. We are in the midst of many district and county wide festivals that take
place during this time of year and, of course, we are already preparing for our spring
concerts which are sure to be upon us sooner than we think.

The purpose of this mailing is to inform you of our annual Dorney Park trip. It has been
our tradition in the middle school music department to travel to Dorney Park each spring
and participate in an adjudication festival. This year’s trip involves members of the
bands, choirs and orchestras and is scheduled for Friday, May 14, 2010. Each group will
perform and be adjudicated. Our groups always have a fantastic experience. A tentative
itinerary of the day’s events will be provided as we get closer to the date of our trip.

There is a cost for us to take this trip which breaks down as follows:
                Music in the Parks / Dorney Park Fee          $48
                Tee Shirts + Snacks for after performance $8

               TOTAL INDIVIDUAL COST                          $56.00

Make checks payable to HMS Bands. Payment is due on February 26.

Please understand that we do keep these costs as low as possible and would never want
any students to miss out on this opportunity due to financial difficulty. Please let me
know of any special circumstances so that we can try to help out.

Lastly, we will need chaperones for the trip and we will fill our chaperone spots on a first
come, first serve basis. We can take as many chaperones as there are available seats on
the buses so, if you’re interested, fill out the enclosed form and send it back to school
with your child or in the mail.

Please call or e-mail with any questions that you may have.
Thanks for your continued support of our music programs!

                              CHAPERONE SIGN UP

**It is only necessary for you to return this page if you are interested in
being considered as a chaperone.

If you are interested in chaperoning, please read below and then fill out the requested

Chaperoning will primarily include the following responsibilities:

        Attendance- each chaperone will be assigned a group of students that they are
       responsible to check on when attendance needs to be taken.

        Stage Crew- each chaperone is asked to lend a hand in the setting up/tearing
       down of each ensemble’s performance equipment. It is our responsibility to have
       our own stage crew. Music In the Parks does not share that responsibility.

* Please be advised that we will take as many chaperones as we can but that once we
have filled the seats it will not be possible to take anymore. You will be contacted if
you are selected to chaperone.
