FVA State Trip Details

Dear Parents, I am writing to inform you of the plans for the Florida Vocal Association State Performance Assessment. The choirs qualified for this event with their superior ratings at the District MPA in February. This year, FVA State will be held at South Florida Community College in Avon Park. All of our events will take place on Wednesday, April 23. We will be leaving Wednesday morning at approx. 7:00 a.m. and returning Thursday night. A small group will be returning to Fort Myers after our performances Wednesday. The tentative itinerary is on the back of this letter. Unfortunately, the school district does not provide funding for us to travel to this event. Therefore, we must pay for the cost of the trip from vocal department money. The cost of the trip will be approx. $11,500. The cost of the trip per student will be $100 if they participated in the cheesecake sale or $125 if they did not participate. This fee is due Tuesday, April 8. Make checks payable to Cypress Lake High School. If you have any other questions, please feel free to contact me.
