7-12 Instrumental Yearbook

New for the 2020-21 school year…

Deb Parker is putting together a yearbook of the students from when they started in 7th grade until now. It will be 104 pages and color with a hardback cover. It will be reasonably priced (think ~$35 but we will let you know as soon as we firm up the budget) and we will offer senior pages to our senior families for a very reasonable cost (think ~$10-$15 a page).

It will include pictures from Disneyland, Ireland, Retreats, Concerts, Competitions, Parades, Football Games, 7/8 Night and more.

Please start gathering your digital images from the Fall of 2015 to now for uploading to Google Drive. A link with folders will be coming your way and probably some nagging emails from Deb.

We are looking for pictures of kids in groups of two or more, preferably with all faces visible!

If you are interested in helping Deb, email her and put, “Yearbook” in the Subject. Just because this past year has been bad, it doesn’t mean our memories have to be. Let’s celebrate all the good we have experienced over the years with this fabulous yearbook. More info to come…

California All-State Honors…

Students from across the State of California auditioned for the California All State Ensembles. Selected students will participate in various Masterclasses as well as Virtual Concerts. This year, LCHS had three students selected for these ensembles.

Victoria Pak was selected to participate in the All-State High School String Orchestra! She participates in Advanced Orchestra as a violinist.

Congratulations!

Elizabeth Pak was selected to participate in the All-State Junior High School Orchestra! She participates in the 7/8 Orchestra as a violinist.

Congratulations!

Kaylee Kim was selected to participate in the All-State High School Wind Ensemble! She participates in the HS Marching Band and Concert Band as a flutist.

Marching Spartans Show Shirts

In order to boost spirits, we decided to create a commemorative t-shirt for Marching Band/Color Guard.

The theme is Keep Marching. Keep Playing. Anyone can buy the shirt!

You can have your shirt(s) delivered directly to you.

We hope this brings back memories, looks to the future and lifts your spirits.

Special thanks to Octavia Thuss and Henry for the design!

Special note to all high school families… There are two donation opportunities this year. The first one is the program contribution to help maintain the Instrumental Music Program as we currently know it. The second one is a student donation which is a straight donation to the program. Please remember that this year there will be no transportation costs or uniform costs. (Concert wear will be purchased separately on an as-needed basis.)

Your donations are the needed financial support to make our program work. The Instrumental Music program receives minimal district funding and we rely heavily on your generous hearts and keen investment in your child’s musical experience. Thank you!

7-12 Rental Instrument/Guard Equipment Return & Pickup

Rental Instruments

For those that are returning to LCHS in the Fall, you can just keep the instrument you have for practicing over the summer. Anyone that needs to turn in an instrument because they are not returning to LCHS in the Fall can drop off their instrument in the back parking lot by the band room at 9am on Tuesday, June 2nd.

Marching Instrument/Guard Equipment

Those that are needing a marching instrument or guard equipment for mini-camp, you can come and pick them up at that time as well. (Tuesday, June 2nd at 9am.)

Please stay in your cars initially as you pull up and wear a mask. Thank you!

Please fill out this form so we know to expect you, even if you have filled it out before.

This is also the form if you have textbooks stranded in your music lockers. Thank you!

MPA Business and More

  1. As with all non-profits and families alike, this time has become somewhat financially stressful. Thank you all for your donations throughout this year, but we still have some obligations to cover moving forward. If you have outstanding donations due for Band, Orchestra, 7/8, Drumline, and/or Color Guard, please consider still contributing. We know that the seasons for some was cut short, but expenses still remain. Thank you.
  2. We would encourage each of you, the next time you shop online from Amazon – which is pretty often these days – to use AmazonSmile. Amazon will donate a small percentage of each purchase to our Music Parents Association. (Look for La Canada High School Music Parents in the list.)
  3. Also, gift cards are another way to raise funds. All the information is below for purchasing them. Contact Ceci Nava if you have any questions.
  4. Booster Raffle Tickets are still available and can still be sold. Boosters are willing to still contribute the funds to our program for all tickets sold. Please contact Elizabeth Bohannon if you would like additional tickets.
  5. The New York trip has been rescheduled for March 5-9, 2021, provided we’re back to “normal” by then. Today is the deadline to fill out the google form. See this post for full information.
