Friday – Marching Band & Colorguard at Knott’s SEE INFO SHEET If your student is getting picked up from Knott’s Berry Farm, a note in writing (email or handwritten) is due by Wednesday, 11/13, 11:59 p.m. The following information is required:

Name of student

Name of adult & relationship to student who will be checking them out

Time of check out (must be before 5:00 p.m.)

Cell phone # of adult who is checking them out

No students will be released unless the responsible adult is present. Your student’s safety is my top priority. 

Optional Knott’s Berry Farm Performances – Jazz Band & Orchestra We have been accepted to take a group of students to perform at Knott’s Berry Farm! This is an “extra” trip and is not required to attend for a grade. In order to attend, students will need to provide their own admission. There are two options for this:

  1. Bring in proof of Knott’s Berry Farm season pass – will be photocopied per request of Knott’s Berry Farm
  2. Purchase a discount ticket through BYEU for $35.00

We will be performing music that will be featured at our Winter Concert as well as some additional songs. Students who attend will miss all day of school and are responsible for making up missed work.

Please bring money or your season pass (to be copied) by
