disneyland trip! 


As I plan for the trip to Disneyland this year I need an official commitment as to whether your child would like to participate in the trip. This trip is NOT a mandatory trip so this is a necessary step. Our final price of the trip is based on the amount of students attending from Chavez, King, Jefferson, Lincoln and the Base Middle Schools. 

As of today, I am estimating the Chavez portion of the trip to be $8,850.00, or an average of $150.00 per student. While we (the music students) will be fundraising a portion of our trip, we are dependent upon parent donations to cover the remaining balance. Parents may make extra donations above the recommended amount if they desire to ensure we reach the total goal. 

I understand that $8,850 is a lot of money. In order to ensure we will reach our goal, we starting to collect donations now. 

It's easier to make small donations over a period of time, so a recommended donation scheduled is listed below. All donations and fundraising must be completed no later than March 18, 2020.

Final payment ($25) due on or before Wednesday, March 18th

Donations will be made by your child directly to our Cougar Store. CASH is always preferable so that the Cougar Store and I do not have to worry about checks being returned from the bank with an added bank charge. 

Please have your child show me the receipt before

they take it home to you. 

We will keep track of all the donations. If for some reason you pull out of the trip or your child becomes ineligible (non-par), that donation, minus the bus cost can be refunded or used for other Chavez expenses (8th-grade trip, super grade card trip, yearbook, or dance to name a few). Otherwise, it will stay in the Music Club account to be used by the Music Dept. 

Payment of donations is not required to participate in the trip, but if we do not raise the total amount the trip will be canceled. 

If you have any additional questions please do not hesitate to ask.

Thanks, Mrs. Washburn

Job well done! 

I was so impressed with the students’ musical ability, as well as your tireless dedication to your profession and to the students that you serve. You have done an outstanding job of not only growing your program, but refining it to one of which we can all be proud.

Fantastic work!!
