Permission Slips:  Permission slips will be electronically submitted with your GPFAA VM website login.

If you are taking and/or picking up your student in front of the event, or if your student is driving themselves, you need to fill out another permission form called “Alternate Student Travel Form.” This form needs to be filled out every single time your student does not take bus transportation. (This is a district rule!)

All forms are due Tuesday, September 13, 2022.

Transportation: district school bus

What to bring: original music, Student ID, sack lunch, water, pencil, paper clips, highlighter

Attire: No specific attire is needed—plan for comfort and success.

Chaperone/Volunteer: YES- we will need help. There will be two different groups helping in different ways. One group will be helping with the actual contest, and the other group will help directly with our own students. (link coming soon) click here to volunteer.

*Additional notes: Students will not be able to have any electronic devices at this contest. Any electronic device will be with a chaperone and students can not have it back until all singers are exiting the facility. Lily Tredemeyer, Guild Events Coordinator will be the parent you will contact if you need to get a hold of your student or have any questions on the day of the event. You can reach her @ (214) 415-2111.
