Wrapping Up the Year – Donations

It’s May… the last full month of the 2020-21 school year. How can that be? And as we come to the end, it’s time to wrap up all loose ends, consider a year-end donation to the program and look forward to next year.

Donations to help off-set costs of maintaining the program can be easily made by:

  • Paypal Link. Please indicate “end of year donation” in the memo section.
  • By Check made payable to “LCHS MPA.” Please note “end of year donation” in the memo section. Mail to P.O. Box 1307, La Cañada, CA 91011

Let’s finish the year strong and as always, we thank you for your continued support of the program!

SAT / ACT Practice Tests

This practice test is for ALL students. Students do not need to be music program or LCHS students,  so invite your friends! (All students need to say they are registering for the “LCHS MPA Fundraiser”).

At $20, this is a GREAT deal for every student from Freshmen and Sophomores who want exposure to the tests, to Juniors and Seniors to take multiple times to prep for the actual tests, and to decide whether they test better on SAT or ACT.

All proceeds go to the Music Parents Association, so sign-up today!

Boosters Raffle – Extended to April 30th!

Extended to April 30th!

The 7-12 Instrumental Music Department, including Band, Orchestra, and Color Guard is participating again in the Spartan Booster’s Raffle this year!

Previously, this had been a printed raffle ticket fundraising event, but due to COVID restrictions it has been moved online and is easy to do! There are great raffle prizes too!

Now you can contact your friends and family all over the U.S. to donate and have a chance of winning some cool prizes, while supporting your student directly, as well as the Music Program. It’s actually easier!

We would greatly appreciate your support by encouraging your family and friends to make a donation to the Spartan Booster Club using the Raffle link. 100% of each donation of any amount will go directly to the Instrumental Music Program (which includes 7/8 and high school), and will earn 5 raffle tickets for a chance to win one of 3 great prizes.

Raffle prizes include:

  • First Prize: Fender 10th Anniversary Hellcat Guitar
  • Second Prize: Holy Stone Drone Package
  • Third Prize: $200 Los Gringos Locos Gift Card

In addition to supporting the Instrumental Music Program, your LCHS student will earn credit towards their student account. The first $40 of the donations attributed to your student goes to the MPA to help fund the Instrumental Music Program. 100% of all donations above $40 attributed to your student will credit their individual MPA student account to be used for Instrumental Music Program costs, travel, and other items.

Please follow these instructions for donating and giving your student credit:

  1. Click Here
  2. Choose “Focused Donation” and select from the pull-down menu: “Instrumental Music – Band / Orchestra” OR “Color Guard”
  3. Fill in “Which LCHS Student Referred You” with the name of the student who referred you. (This step is important for students to receive credit for each donation referral).
  4. To Enter the Raffle: Go back to the Donation page and click on the “Raffle Entry Window” on the right-hand side of the page, enter the required information and transaction ID number.

Good Luck! And once again, the 7/8 & high school Instrumental Music Program (Band, Orchestra, and Color Guard) thank you for your continued support throughout this difficult year.

Sending to your family and friends? Click Here to download a sample letter for you to use as an email. Just copy, paste into your email, enter your student’s name and send! It’s easy!

March Performances

Here we are in the middle of March. At this point last year, things were put on hold and cancelled… but this year, we’re starting to see the light at the end of the tunnel. Let’s be patient and do what we can when we can! It’s exciting!

March 19th will be the premiere of our Festival Concert. Each of our groups will perform in this virtual concert – so mark your calendars now. The premiere will be on LCPlay+ under the “LCInstrumental” icon.

March 21st is the long-awaited Boost-a-Thon sponsored by the Spartan Booster Club. From the chatter around the district office, this seems to be an event you don’t want to miss. Many individuals have worked many, many hours to pull this off and we’re looking forward to seeing our students and hearing their stories. Mark your calendars!
