BAND TRIPS FOR 2024

The M100 Spring Trip for the 2023-2024 school year will be to San Antonio from Saturday, May 18 to Sunday, May 19, 2024. This would include a ticket to Six Flags Fiesta Texas, a tour of the Natural Bridge Caverns with Gem Mining, and a visit to the San Antonio Riverwalk. There will NOT be a performance component for this trip, just a fun opportunity to celebrate the end of the school year!


The goal is for the price of the trip to fall between the $300-$500 range, which can only be determined once we know how many people will be going on the trip. Please complete the following survey by the end of the day on Thursday, February 15. Once we have this information, we will send out an official survey with the finalized trip price.
