Disneyland tour meeting
There was a Disneyland tour meeting on Tues. Oct. 3 at 6:30 pm. If you have missed it and require information please contact Ms. Fehr via e-mail. The tentative itinerary, payment schedule, and travel insurance expectations were provided at the meeting. Further communication concerning several aspects of the trip will be provided at the next mandatory meeting in Feb 2018. If you haven't done so already please provide a non-refundable deposit of $500.00 payable to Queen Elizabeth High School as well as a mandatory insurance fee (CBE policy) of $110.00 to secure your child's spot on the trip.
Male supervisors are still needed for the trip. If you are interested please contact Ms. Fehr.
This handbook was developed by the 2016-17 QEBPA Executive Board. The purpose is to provide outlines, expectations, and procedures. This handbook is intended to be reviewed and revised after each band trip, ensuring continuous improvement.
