|Who Are We and What Do We Do?
The La Center Music Association was formed in 1984 by a dedicated group
of parents. The goal was to help provide equipment, uniforms and money
for trips to music festivals and performance opportunities; primarily at the
High School level. La Center School District enrollment increased so did the
needs in our music departments. In 2004 we decided to expand our efforts
to increase more support at the middle school and elementary school levels.
This move challenged us to step up our fundraising and actively seek more
volunteers—We are grateful for the parents and community members who
have generously offered their support. Thank you!
The Music Association sponsors the Holiday Village Bazaar at the High
School and manages concessions during high school JV football and
volleyball games for ASB music fund. We also take donations at the
concerts that is donated back to the school.
Funds from these events helped purchase tubas and a keyboard for the
middle school band, a drum kit for the middle school choir, a xylophone and
vocal sound system for the elementary school, and paid for all end-of-the-
year awards for the high school music students. Thanks to the Constance
Cerveny Foundation, we were able to award a $500 scholarship to two
Senior high school music students who are continuing their education. As
an association, we awarded four $200.00 scholarships to current middle
school and high school music students, for music lessons or music camp.
As our community grows, so do the needs of our music teachers. The La
Center Music Association is committed, to continue our support of the
director's needs in the classroom. We encourage and invite you to be a part
of this hardworking, and dedicated group!
Music cleanses the understanding; inspires it, and lifts it into a realm
which it would not reach if it were left to itself.
