LA Trip Payments and Concert Congratulations!
Thank you so much for coming to our first concert of the year. It’s been a fantastic start and I was very proud of your students! The next big thing is our Madrigal Dinner, which happens Mid-December. Look out for more information about that and tickets soon.
Trip Payments will be due soon for the next installment. When we first started this journey, our travel company had a great way to let everyone pay online, but I discovered there was a 5% convenience fee on top of the total trip amount. I did not feel this was fair to pass along to you, so instead of paying online, please send checks or cash into school to have students pay me directly.
Unfortunately, since we have to go through the school’s banking system and want to be sure to avoid any late fees, the due dates for payments have been moved up about two weeks. It takes about two weeks for processing before the request makes it’s way through our bookkeeper, and then all the way downtown. I tried to make them toward the beginning of the month since families tend to have a little more cash on hand then. Below is the updated payment schedule.
November 3rd, $262
January 5th, $262
February 2nd, $262
March 2nd $259
Hotel and bus assignment sign ups will go out soon. The students have requested that we make t-shirts for the trip as well, so those will go out in the next few weeks.
