When are we traveling to Leavenworth?

We will be traveling to Leavenworth on Friday, May 26th. Scholars will immediately report to the band room once they arrive for school. Our anticipated departure time from Sequoyah Middle School is 8:15 AM. Our anticipated return time is 7:30 PM. Please note that all participating scholars will need a ride home from Sequoyah Middle School at approximately 7:30 PM.

Who can participate?

This trip is for our 7th grade and 8th grade band and orchestra scholars.

Why travel to Leavenworth?

Our annual trip to Leavenworth is an exciting opportunity for our scholars to showcase their work with members of the public outside of our region. Our scholars will provide the soundtrack for the picturesque town of Leavenworth, all while representing our music program, our school, and our community with pride.

How much will this trip cost?

 Thanks to the many scholars who sold coupon books and purchased music department apparel, we were able to reduce the cost of the trip to $20.00 per scholar. Checks should be made payable to Sequoyah Middle School and must be turned in to Ms. Hall in the office by May 24th. This travel fee will cover the two charter busses needed to transport our anticipated 90 participants. If you are unable to cover this travel fee, please contact Mr. Leslie or Mr. Walworth and ask about potential scholarships available to qualifying families.

 The $20.00 will not cover the cost of food. Options for meals include:

  1. Order a sack lunch provided by the school
  2. Pack own meal
  3. Bring money to purchase lunch and dinner

What if there are unpaid fees on my child’s account?

 Scholars who have unpaid fees on their school account will be unable to participate unless the account balance has been paid. Please check with our financial secretary (Lorri-anne Hall) if you are unsure about the status of your child’s school account. You may email (lhall@fwps.org) or call Ms. Hall (253-945-3672) during office hours.

Do you need chaperones?

 Absolutely! We have room for approximately 10 to 15 chaperones on our busses, and would love the support! Led by our chaperones, our scholars will have free time to explore Leavenworth in groups of 5 to 10 students. If you are interested in volunteering, please contact Mr. Leslie (cleslie@fwps.org) to reserve your spot. Please note, all chaperones must complete a background check (or have a background check on file) in order to volunteer.  Background check paperwork is available in the Sequoyah Middle School main office and takes approximately three weeks to process.
