Dear Parents and Guardians,

This is the year for the orchestra and jazz band to take an overnight trip. We have made arrangements for the orchestra and jazz band to travel to Boston, MA on April 12, & 13, 2024.

I need to get a headcount of how many students will be participating as well as how many parents are interested in chaperoning on this trip.  (Chaperons pay the same price as the students)


Parents must have their clearances on file in the Nitschmann office. If you are not sure if your information is on file, contact the Nitschmann office at 610-866-5781. Information on how to renew or apply for your clearances can be found at https://www.basdschools.org/volunteering.

The cost of the trip per person is $345 per person.
