The Santa Fe Trail High School Band is putting the "fun" into "fund-raising" with our annual Band on the Run. Each band member will collect pledges based on how many laps they can run/walk around a standard 400 meter track within 1 hour. An average runner can complete about 16 laps. All of the money collected will be credited into my student fund-raising account. This year we are raising money for our trip to Orlando, Fl.
Dear Band Parents and Guardians,
Thank you for the time and support you have given the band! The SFT Band will be traveling to Orlando, Florida, on March 7, 2019. The total cost of the trip per student is approximately $1,000 . The payments for the trip are divided into 5 installments. The first installment of $100 was paid in July to secure the trip.
I have spoken with students about the trip. You are receiving this letter of agreement because your student indicated intent to go on the trip and also indicated understanding of financial requirements of the trip.
Because of strict contractual obligations with the Group Travel Planners, students must have specific amounts of money in their accounts (which is accounted for by the Band Boosters Treasurer) throughout the year. I understand that the cost is a significant amount of money; efforts are made to provide fundraisers throughout the Fall and Winter to help offset the cost of the trip. (See the 2019 SFT Marching Band Fundraising document for a detailed list.) Please know that any student who backs out of the trip forfeits any money in the student’s individual account (including payments made or fundraising money earned) and consequently raises the total amount the rest of the other band members have to pay.
Parents/guardians must sign a release/agreement form for their student. By signing this agreement, you agree that you are granting your child permission to go on the trip and that you are financially obligated to make payments at the assigned times.
Please sign this form and have your child return it to me no later than September 20, 2019. Questions or concerns? Please do not hesitate to email me at .
