The Lakewood Performing Arts Council (LPAC) is the Lakewood High School music booster organization supporting instrumental music students. They provide financial assistance with instruments, instructors and clinicians, transportation, food, entry fees, music, etc. This organization is very important part of the instrumental music department and is becoming increasingly important with each passing year as school budgets get smaller and smaller.
LPAC meets the first Wednesday of every month at 6pm. This meeting is open to all parents and students. Meetings are an excellent way to keep in touch with what is happening regarding events, volunteer opportunities, and the operation of the organization.
The LPAC Board of Directors is elected to serve one-year terms. Their main purpose is to ensure the success of LPAC and maximize the opportunities for LHS instrumental music students. If you have questions regarding the instrumental program, volunteer opportunities, or LPAC feel free to contact anyone of the board members.
LPAC has many volunteer opportunities and we encourage any and all to participate. Please contact any of the officers to learn how to become more involved.
More volunteer hours are spent helping the marching band at Lakewood High School than with any other instrumental music activity. The marching band needs parents with expertise in the following areas:
Food Crew - Help feed the students by coordinating with other parents to provide fruit, deserts, and beverages.
Bengal Backers - Organize groups of parents to help move pit equipment (the large instruments at the front of the marching field) at competition sites.
Prop Coordinator - Schedule a regular crew for each performance to assemble and disassemble props, move them around at competition sites, and load and unload them in a truck.
Truck Drivers - On competition days, drive the BR Trailer, or volunteer to lend us a trailer for instruments and props to competition sites and back to school. (No special license needed.)
Event Coordinators - Help with special marching band events - Tiger Prowl, Homecoming Picnic, Bandcoming
Big Cat Marching Invitation - Volunteer to help in various capacities to make the show run smoothly
Concert Representatives - Sell music gear, King Soopers Cards, and represent LPAC at concerts
Empty Bowl - Silent Auction Coordinator, Soup Competition Coordinator, Event Organizer
ROARchestra Volunteers - Check in Table, Group Guides, Judge Runners
King Soopers/Safeway Cards
Each year, the LPAC membership elects a board consisting of a President, Vice President, Secretary, and Treasurer to lead the music boosters at LHS. The board also consists of multiple members-at-large who serve in various capacties.
