Register for the Nashville Trip


Please check your email for registration information.

For those that have created a new account for this trip, the following information on the account transfers was relayed to Mr. Armentrout

We decided to use the old Trip ID for your Nashville Trip; Trip ID 10197.  There were more particpants on this ID so I changed everything to reflect the new cost, dates, etc.
Trip ID 10426 is now disabled.

Please tell your families we will be using the same trip id that they registered with; 10197, to continue their payments.  The cost has now changed to $1095.

Here is the new link to send to families to register:

Are there chaperones needed?
Yes, there will be a limited number of chaperone spots available.  The number is variable based on the number of students.   Chaperones will pay the same cost as the students.  

What is the cost of the tour?
The cost of the tour will be around $1100.   

Will there be any fundraising plans?
Yes! We will need volunteers to help set up fundraising and your participation to make them successful. We will offer them as long as there are people involved.

When will this take place?
We will be traveling near the beginning of spring break of 2023. The dates are March 8th through 12th.
