Poinsettia Sales!

Our annual poinsettia fundraiser is underway! These are beautiful plants and are easy to sell.

For all plants that your student sells, they will receive $4 into their student account for all sales from November 1st through December 1st. Student account funds carry over from year to year, so start saving now for upcoming trips (in two years we’ll be doing an international trip), Disneyland trips, or any other expenses.

BoostOberfest 2019

Dear MPA Parents,

The Spartan Boosters Club has been a big and generous supporter of the LCHS Instrumental Music Program. Boosters raised the funds to help transform the music room into a recording studio, helped decal the instrumental music truck, and provides an annual support donation. Now, they need our help.

All they’re asking is for you to come and have a great time at BoostOberfest this Saturday, October 26th, 6-11pm. It’s going to be an incredibly fun event with authentic catered German food from a top German restaurant, open bar, and a top live Oktoberfest band, even a Stein Holding competition… All hosted under the stars at the beautiful Matarese residence in La Canada. A portion of the of the Auction proceeds will directly support the Instrumental Music Program.

Please come and invite all your friends to support the Boosters. They support us. This is not just for LCHS parents. The Boosters are building this to be a major annual event for La Canada!

The best way to get tickets is to join Boosters at the Spartan Club level ($400 per year) or above. This gets you two tickets to BoostOberfest, two passes to all home football and basketball games, and you can designate up to $100 of your donation to Music or any three programs Boosters supports.

Go to their website and click on “Join” to become a Booster and click on “Events” to purchase tickets for BoostOberfest.

Thanks in advance for your support! I hope to see you there!
