The senior class will travel to Camp Bountiful on Saturday, August 2nd. Seniors will meet at the high school at 10:00 a.m. Final loading will take place and we will be on the road by 11:00 a.m. During pre-camp, Mr. Bradstreet will discuss with the seniors responsibilities, driving privileges and expectations. Please download and complete the required school form for using personal vehicles (Form #8660-F1 Approval for Student Transportation by Private Vehicle).
On the way to band camp, we will stop for lunch at Arby’s just outside of Circleville. Sunday morning, the seniors, staff and chaperones will have breakfast at Bob Evans in Jackson. Students will need to bring spending money to cover the cost of these TWO meals (approximately $15-$20).
Thursday evening, August 7th, will be the annual Senior Dinner. Senior students and directors will attend this year’s dinner at Ponderosa in Jackson. The seniors may want to pack a casual outfit to wear for this event such as khaki shorts and golf shirts for the guys and sundresses or capris and a dressy top for the girls.
You must make your reservation in advance at a cost of $15 per student, which includes tip. This dinner for your student will be buffet style and includes: An array of fresh vegetables and fruit, plus soups, salads, appetizers and desserts. There is also a variety of seafood, beef, chicken and pasta dishes. Beverage selection includes unlimited soft drinks or iced tea.
Seniors will have a Subway picnic lunch at Camp Bountiful following the morning performance and camp clean-up duty before returning home on Saturday, August 9th. >> Please download and complete the Subway Order Form << and return by Friday, August 1st, prior to leaving for camp.
