Field trips were recently approved for the Queen Creek Middle School and Eastmark High School orchestras and another for Eastmark High School and Queen Creek High School students in the Advancement Via Individual Determination program.
The April 24-26 overnight field trip for 140 students in the Queen Creek Middle School and Eastmark High School orchestras and the EHS bands to go to the Anaheim Heritage Festival is to cost $425 per student. It includes adjudicated festival participation; awards presentation at Disneyland and a one-day pass; and lodging with breakfast, sponsors Mrs. B. Burkhart and Mr. N. Johnston said in a field trip information form.
“The purpose of the field trip is for students to perform for adjudication at a nationally recognized adjudicated festival; observe other groups and participate in a clinic led by college professors, reinforcing the learning that they are receiving at their home school,” they wrote.
