12/5_ Band Concert


Disneyland Trip!

The Disneyland trip is an optional trip for any 8th grade Band or Orchestra student who are currently enrolled in Concert Band or Advanced Orchestra.


Date: Friday, May 18th, 2018

Fee: $135


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


It’s time for all the students who will be attending the trip to make their first payment.


Your official commitment was the first payment, which was due by Wednesday, Oct 15thPlease have your child show me theri receipt before they take it home.


Here is the payment schedule for the rest of the school year:

$20.00 due on or before Thursday, Oct. 15th

$20.00 due on or before Thursday, Nov. 12th

$20.00 due on or before Thursday, Dec.10th  

$20.00 due on or before Tuesday, Jan. 12th

$20.00 due on or before Tuesday, Feb. 9th

$20.00 due on or before Tuesday, March 15th

Final payment ($15) due on or before Tuesday, April 12th


Payments 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 deal with checks being returned from the bank with an added bank charge.


PLEASE NOTE: ANY MONEY PAID TO THE COUGAR STORE FOR THE DISNEYLAND TRIP IS NOT REFUNDABLE. If for some reason you pull out of the trip once you’ve made a payment, that money, minus the bus cost can be 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.


If your child participated in the School’s Cherrydale fundraiser and the Music Department’s Discount Card sale, their final total due will be adjusted.


If you have any additional questions please don’t hesitate to ask. Thank you, Mrs. Washburn


For any questions, please contact Mrs. Washburn at or call 760-966-4934.

Parent Compliment regarding Music Program

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!!
