WHAT WE DO
The MPA provides grants to students in grades 9 – 11 each year who are attending a summer music program and Scholarship Awards each year to graduating seniors.
The MPA supports parents through our two or three education programs each year, which cover such subjects as finding the right summer music program for your student and continuing the pursuit of music at the college level. The MPA e-mail blast informs all of our members of upcoming events, volunteer opportunities and news. Our newsletter highlights student and faculty accomplishments, recent events and membership announcements.
The MPA supports the faculty by recruiting parents to help with uniform fitting, cleaning, inventory, uniform exchanges and collection. Each September the MPA provides all the volunteers needed to set up and run the used instrument sale. All proceeds of this sale go to the Music Resource Center. The MPA parents volunteer to usher and take tickets at concerts, to sell CDs, and other concert-related activities.
The MPA supports the students by providing refreshments at all home football games for the band members, providing refreshments for the students, faculty and guests after each concert and recognizing the accomplishments of our seniors at the senior awards concerts each spring.
We have developed this website as another way in which we can support and celebrate music at the high schools and throughout the community.
