The Performing Arts Booster Association (PABA) was created by volunteer parents to provide support to students and staff of the performing and visual arts at STHS. PABA supports over 600 students enriching their high school experience with theater, music, digital media arts & visual art. The 2020/2021 school year has obviously presented us with very unusual circumstances. For the first time since its inception, PABA is faced with needing donations to support the organization without being able to guarantee any showcasing of the performances and art work of the students.

     In a normal school year, PABA provides support funds for the musical and pays for the royalties, sets and support; guest teachers; student scholarships for honor bands; equipment and supplies; and trips to professional theater performances, band competitions and photography workshops. While these things may not all happen this year, the faculty is innovative and continually looking for opportunities for their students. We fully support their efforts and want to make sure we’re ready when in-person gatherings are possible again--we don’t know if new protocols might require additional costs that we cannot anticipate . This means that your support - for which we are always grateful - is even more important during this “pause” in our programming. We are planning for the future, and without the present possibility of advertising, bake sales, ticket sales, and giveaway baskets, your continued membership is critical for our efforts.

     How can you help? Donate! Tell your friends, your family - PABA needs your help to ensure that STHS students - this year and years to come - will have the opportunity to participate in the arts. Membership benefits this year can’t really include VIP seating tickets (yet!) or a snazzy magnetic calendar of upcoming events. However, we do have a lovely giveaway basket and you will be entered to win it, when you start or renew your membership by October 31.

     We will also be emailing a newsletter to keep you up-to-date on any upcoming events or fundraising/volunteer opportunities.
