At AMPA we encourage parents and families to step up
AMPA encourages parent and family involvement in roles as chaperones, organizers, department reps, fundraisers and committee members. There are many ways you can lend your time, skills, ideas and support. At many high schools, parents take a step back, but at AMPA we encourage our parents to step up. Performance departments ask for help at concerts and competitions, serving as liaisons and coordinators. AMPA encourages you to join our non-profit foundation Friends of AMPA
or to represent the academy at the Hamilton Booster Club
or the Shared Decision Making (SDM) Council
Friends of the Academy of Music and Performing Arts (Friends of AMPA).
Help maintain the excellence of our programs by supporting the annual campaign to raise funds for all programs. Contact FriendsofAMPA@gmail.com
for more information.
