Whistler Chaperones Needed & Whistler Fees  

Fall Band Concert | Wind Ensemble | Nov 8, 2017
Fall Band Concert | Wind Ensemble | Nov 8, 2017

Urgent Call for Whistler Chaperones: 
To ensure the Wind Ensemble's Whistler trip will happen, we need either two males or one couple to volunteer NOW. 
The expected cost for chaperones is $450, which includes transportation, three nights at the Hilton Whistler, three breakfasts, two dinners, festival admission and all group activities. This is a fun destination and a great deal. You will have some free time and chaperone duties are simple: help students be on time to scheduled activities, complete room checks at night, and help students or Mr. James as needed. Please contact  Jen Witeck with questions or to volunteer.

Whistler Festival Payment Past Due: The second payment of $200 for students and $150 for chaperones was due Nov. 16.  Every musician - including scholarship recipients - must make a payment. Pay through their personal student account funds, check made payable to BPA, or  online.
