Holiday Concert Setup Assistance Request

Attention LCPAA Students and Families!

On Saturday December 1st from 8:00am-12:00pm, your assistance is requested to help with setup for the 2018 Holiday Concert.

  • Parent help will be needed.
  • This will be the first time we will be in the auditorium since the renovation, and much will need to be done to get the area ready. Students will be asked to help as well, but parent help will be extremely important in the process.
  • In addition to the normal setup of trees, decorations, choir risers, etc., there are a few small organizational and clean-up projects that require attention.
  • No specials skills or talents are required, but a smile and positive attitude are helpful!
  • If you or your student are able to assist, please email Mr. James (matthewjames@PROTECTED) and let him know you are coming!
  • Enter the school at Door 11 and proceed to the auditorium
  • The more people who offer their assistance, the faster the process will go, which will allow everyone involved to continue their weekend activities.

Thank you for your continued support of the students and the arts at Lawrence Central!

Performing Arts Program Ad Campaign

Looking for a great opportunity to earn some of your student’s Performing Arts fees?  You can now participate in the LCPAA Performing Arts Ad Campaign to sell ads for our LCPAA Performing Arts events program (our version of a PLAYBILL), with 30% of each of your sales directly crediting to your student’s account. As an example, if you sell a $100 business card size ad to a business owner, $30 of that sale will be credited to your student’s account.  Many larger sized ads are also available for sale.

To participate, you must register by emailing Tad Williams at 
adcampaign@PROTECTED and by picking up an Ad Campaign information packet from Mrs. Felli in the Performing Arts office. The packet provides details about getting started and includes answers to all of your questions about this opportunity. Click here to download and read the attached information to determine if you would like to participate.

The campaign also gives parents and other relatives or friends a chance to purchase a personal tribute ad for their students, which can include a photo or just a note of congratulations on the student’s performing arts successes.  Personal tribute ads are half the price of business ads.

The program is a high quality, professionally printed document sold/distributed at our five most well-attended events and performances, and includes unlimited space for you to sell ad space to community businesses, your employer, and or family and friends.  The Ad Campaign for the 2019 calendar year program is now underway and will last approximately 8 weeks, ending on Friday, December 14th.

Mrs. Felli has complete information packets available for sign out in the Performing Arts office, which include all instructions and order forms necessary for completing the ad sales.

If you would like more information, please contact adcampaign@PROTECTED or (317)270-7876.
