Last-Minute Orlando Reminders

Here are some last-minute updates for our Orlando trip:

  • You must remember to bring your ID card. If you are over 18, this MUST be government-issued (Driver License, State ID, Passport, etc.).

  • After talking to several people, I believe I overstated the possibility for inclement weather. Apparently, it's pretty usual to have 40-60% chance of precepitation in Florida. I would still be prepared and bring a poncho in your luggage.

  • Please review Disney Park Rules.

  • Good news! We will be at Hollywood Studios on a weekend, which means that it is on a special Star Wars Weekends Event! Woo-hoo!

  • If you haven't yet, please visit this link to sign-up for a tour group. If you want to make a swap with someone, you can log back in and request a swap. Please get this done before 3 PM.


Commemorative CD Orders

Each year, Mr. Faught compiles and produces a CD of the year's recordings for each class. If you are interested in ordering a CD for your student, please complete this form. Orders and payments are due by Friday, May 15.


Senior Scholarships & All-State Choir Camp Sponsorship Applications

Senior Scholarships

Application Form

Each year, our booster club awards two scholarships to graduating seniors. A student need not be pursuing a degree in music to be considered. All applications must be received by the deadline of Friday, May 15 at 1 PM to be considered. Late applications cannot be accepted; however, early applications are welcomed and encouraged.

All-State Choir Camp Sponsorships

Application Form

New this year, our booster club is considering awarding sponsorships to worthy students who are interested in attending one of the various All-State Choir Camps that occur over the summer. Students must complete an application to be considered for one of these sponsorships. The number of quality applicants will determine the number and amount of sponsorships to be awarded. All applications must be received by the deadline of Friday, May 15 at 1 PM to be considered. Late applications cannot be accepted; however, early applications are welcomed and encouraged.
