LCAP Presentation

Dear Music Parents Association,

Our district Local Control and Accountability Plan (LCAP) Committee is in the process of working on district-wide LCAP goals for the 2021-22 school year. The LCAP Committee would like to hear from you on these proposed DRAFT goals. Please listen to this brief video message from our Chief Technology Officer, Jamie Lewsadder.

After you have listened to this presentation, please complete this short survey by Monday, March 22nd letting us know if you have any feedback, suggestions, or comments. Thank you.


Karen Hurley and Jamie Lewsadder

Why do you Donate to the MPA?

At the last few MPA meetings, discussions have been had about why the MPA does what it does and why we rely on support from our families and ask for the donations that we do.

Our Instrumental Program is in the business of educating, encouraging, and inspiring kids to be a part of something bigger than just an individual going through high school. We provide staff, instruments, music, and so much more to continue that work.

It’s about the building of great people in a great community, and has never been about winning a competition. We are constantly striving to put out great events and shows, which I think is much better than first place (although first place is fun too). I always look at the donations as an investment in the students and in making them great adults.

Thank you for your support.

~ Mr. Stone

2nd Semester Budget Update

The 2020-21 school year has been unique, to say the least. But teachers and students are adapting as best as they can and music is being created in new, different, and creative ways.

As we begin 2nd semester, we are usually planning for the Dinner Show – our biggest fundraiser of the year – another event that is not possible this year.

We are hard at work budgeting and continuing our existing fundraisers to support our winter/spring programs.

Please remember to eat at Doña Maria’s on Sundays (they have been a great partner), inform students you know of the SAT/ACT prep tests, and promote the Booster Raffle! The students have contributed with sweatshirts, Go Fund Me, and bake sales so far this year! Even a one-time donation to the program is great!

Thank you for your continued financial support of our program! 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.
