LSWMP News (for parents and students)

Good morning,

I’d like to give a huge THANK YOU to all of those that volunteered at the Music Festival in March and April.students, parents along with other family and friends. I don’t have the final figures yet for the student accounts, waiting on what we’ll get for door monitor reimbursement from the state, our concessions sales were down this year however. Congratulations to all of the students for their hard work and for receiving awesome scores.

News and notes:

Trash bag fundraiser – Everyone should have received an email with information. If not please contact the fundraising coordinator at

Mattress Fundraiser – Everyone should have also received information for this from Mr. Thurmond, if not please contact him at There is an opportunity for individual funds for this as well.

Senior scholarship – Seniors all received an email from me about this, turn all information in by the 20th.

Officer elections – We’ll be electing officers at our next meeting on April 21st. Currently the Music Festival position is open if anyone would be willing to head this.

Lettering information – Teachers should soon be making this available for all students to fill out. If you don’t fill out the google document then there won’t be awards for you at the awards show. Awards are provided by the music parents organization for the students that attend this event. Look for more information coming on this.

Fireworks tent – For those that have been around this before, we got it this year! For those that haven’t, LSW will host a fireworks tent that is run through Pyro City out of Lone Jack by the music parents. In this past this has been a general fundraiser, this year it’s going to be an individual fundraiser completely. I’ll be able to provide more information on this at a later date, likely towards the end of May.
