Best dates we could come up with for a Band Spring Trip is May 1st-2nd (a Friday and Saturday).  We will leave early Friday morning.

Cost for Spring Trip to Nashville and Dollywood will be $150 per student.  The only thing this does not include is meals and shopping, but breakfast is provided at the hotel.  We will do $75 due in March, $75 due in April. I may be able to get a quick fundraiser approved once we return from Spring Break
