Wicked (8th Grade JFK Field Trip)

All 8th grade Kennedy Middle School band and choir students are invited to participate in a trip to see the popular musical Wicked in Chicago on Friday, December 8th at the Oriental Theatre.  This optional trip will cost $112.00 per person.  This cost includes:

  • Dinner at Connie’s Pizza on Archer Ave.

We have two coach buses reserved for this trip (98 students, 8 chaperones, 4 staff).  We will take students and chaperones on a first-come basis. A waiting list will be established as needed. Anyone who is on the waiting list that does not go on the trip will be refunded.

Please note that refunds will only be provided if that student’s spot on the trip can be filled and paid for by another individual. We are required to pay for every student package regardless of whether or not it gets used!
