LCPAA Fundraisers

What makes band, show choir, winter guard, theatre, and other arts events work? Lots of hard work, blood sweat and tears, and of course, money. To help offset the costs of these activities, there are a number of fundraising opportunities that have had a history of success. With your efforts and participation, these events will be successful this year too! This year, the PA department will be going to Disney. The following fundraisers can help students earn money towards their performing arts fees. Once fees are paid in full, any funds raised can go towards the Disney trip.

Current fundraisers include: 

  • Professional Automotive
  • Donatos
  • Yankee Candle
  • Mums
  • Trash Bags
  • Scrip
  • The Gala

Students recieved order forms in their performing arts classes last week. Extra forms can be picked up in the PA office or downloaded from either this email or at Fundraisers are due at 4pm on August 21.

SignUp - Performing Arts Office

The Performing Arts Office is in need of donations to keep the office stocked for students. Many times students come in to grab an extra snack, or they need other items like bathroom supplies and tissues. For this purpose, a SignUp has been created. Please feel free to donate other items not listed on the form. Thank you for your support!


MPLT Spirit Wear

Spirit Wear for MPLT is on sale now through Sunday, August 25th. All orders will be made after the 25th. Delivery will be 2 weeks after that – in time for the LC Invitational. All items will be delivered to the PA Office.


MPLT Remind

As of July 23rd, Remind101 changed their terms of use policy limiting course numbers to 150 members per free account. After a few weeks of researching the best solution to this problem, we have found that the fees and processes associated with upgrading our account were not feasible for the needs of our organization at this time. For this reason, we have decided to go forward with section specific remind classrooms for both students and parents for the remainder of the season. Below are the remind codes and instructions for our newest MPLT remind accounts. We ask that you only sign up for the remind account that corresponds with your student’s section to help us keep the member limit below 150 per class. All remind classes will receive the same information, so if you have multiple students as long as you are registered for one class you will get all pertinent notifications for MPLT members.

To sign up for remind:

  1. Go to text messages and create a new message
  2. Type 21010 into the contact field
  3. Text the code corresponding to the class that you would like to sign up for.

MPLT: Brass
Parents Code: @a223c7

MPLT: Guard
Parents Code: @ltcgp

MPLT: Percussion
Parents Code: @e28d28c

Thank you for your continued patience regarding this matter! ~ MPLT Directors
