How Can I Help?
I am sometimes asked what parents and community members can do to help our music program. Here are some ways that you can help!
Join the LeRoy Music Boosters
We are extremely fortunate to have strong Music Boosters in our district. These community members are parents of music students, and meet monthly. Boosters provides support for K-12 music and theatre. The best way to keep track of the LeRoy Music Boosters and find meeting times is to follow the LeRoy Music Boosters on Facebook.
Connect With LeRoy Music Boosters on Amazon (Amazon Smile)
If you connect your amazon account with our organization and shop using http://smile.amazon.com, we will receive a (small) portion of every dollar that you spend. Free money! Visit the link below to connect to our organization, and don't forget to use smile.amazon.com when you shop!
State Farm Employee Grant
State Farm has a great program for employees. If an employee records a certain number of hours of community service for our school, a grant can be sent and directed to the music program. Several State Farm employees have been able to record these hours for their help during the musical and throughout the year. These hours can happen both during and after the work day.
Volunteer Your Time
Many hours of work go into our music room and programs. If you have the time and means to volunteer, your help would be greatly appreciated, especially around concert, musical, and fundraising times.
Donate an Unused Instrument
Our rockband program (5th/6th grades) is in need of high quality instruments. Check out the Rock Band Page to see more specifics on what is needed. Do you have one of these instruments gathering dust at your house? We will put it to use!
Buy a Wishlist Item
If you are able to help our classroom financially, Mr. Scott is an active Amazon Prime member, and keeps a current wish list for the LES Music Classroom. This list is updated often, and reflects the current needs, desires, and dreams for the program. Items purchased from this list can be shipped directly to LES, and a donation receipt can be emailed to you upon request for tax purposes. If you buy using our connection with smile.amazon.com (see above) you will be donating an item AND a portion of your purchase!
Sponsor a Field Trip
Would your company like to sponsor a field trip for the music classroom? Taking our fourth grade students to see the orchestra each Spring can cost up to $500! It is great to be able to cover the cost of this experience without asking families for financial support.
Thank you for your support!
