As you know, from July 2-7, 2015, the Gahr Instrumental Music Program will embark on a 6-day, 5-night Performance Tour of “The Aloha State”, Hawaii! The trip will be highlighted by a performance on the USS Missouri Battleship, resting in the heart of the historic waters of Pearl Harbor and proving a symbolic connection from the “day which will live in infamy” to the formal ending of World War II. The band & color guard will be performing primarily patriotic works on the 4th of July weekend.
We currently have over 90+ students and parents going on the trip! You don't want to miss out on this exciting and life-changing opportunity! Your son/daughter will be representing the Gahr High School Instrumental Music Program, ABCUSD, and the state of California on this very special performance trip!
If you still want to go, it's not too late to sign up and get caught up with the payments. However, you must fill out and mail in the registration & insurance form ASAP. Gahr alumni are also invited to travel and perform with the band!
All the forms and additional information are on our website:
Our next payment of $290 is due this Friday, February 6th. After this Friday there are only two more payments remaining. MusicAmerica accepts credit card over the phone/online, check, or cash. The boosters have been working hard to come up with effective fundraisers to earn money towards your account, including our upcoming Valentine's Sweetheart Ball! You can also look forward to a Swap Meet and Hawaii Car Wash.
If your student needs to take Summer School, there are a few options to still be able to participate in the trip:
1) You can register for online classes through ABCUSD Adult School. This is 5 hours a week and students check in with their instructors in person once a month. You must take the course concurrently with 2nd semester. http://www.abcadultschool.edu/
2) Take summer classes through Cerritos College. There are typically several different sessions that range from late May to early July, and July through August. The Summer 2015 dates are not available yet. http://cms.cerritos.edu/admissions-and-records/catalogue-schedule/default.htm
We're looking forward to seeing you Wednesday!
