Dear Buchanan Winter Percussion Parents/Guardians,

The Buchanan Winter Percussion Ensemble will be attending several SJVCGPR Shows, NCPA Independence in San Jose, and NCPA Championships during the 2019 Season. Here is a brief overview:

3/8 @ Clovis North
3/16 NCPA Show @ Independence HS in San Jose
3/29 SJVCGPR Championships @ Clovis North

The total field trip fee for the direct costs (transportation, registration fees, some meals and snacks, etc.) associated with this field trip is $125.00, which is due by March 15th. 2019. Please complete and submit the trip form (link below) by Friday, February 1, 2019. If you are unable to pay this fee in full or in part, please indicate that on the trip form.

The field trip fee will cover: 

  • Charter bus transportation to NCPA Shows

  • Equipment Transportation

  • Performances at SJVCGPR & NCPA Shows

  • Some meals and snacks throughout the season

The students will need to pay for:

  • Some meals on the NCPA trips.

  • Show Souvenirs (Optional)

We encourage all students (and parents!) to participate in current fundraisers. This is a great way for students to earn trip credit to offset their trip expenses. 

These trips and performances are an important part of the overall winter percussion experience and are a culmination of all of the hard work the students have done throughout the entire season. The student’s participation is expected as part of the commitment they made at the beginning of the season.

We need parent chaperones to make these trips a success. Please fill out the chaperone section of the trip form below if you are interested in chaperoning.

When available, current itineraries can be found on the website under the ‘Events’ menu. If you have any questions regarding these travel experiences, please e-mail us.

These will be fun and educational experience for our students. We appreciate your support!

Respectfully yours,

John Lack
