Drum Set Lab

If you were to ask someone what they thought of when you said, “percussion,” chances are their first thought would be drummers on drum sets. If they found out that you were connected with LPS and that you offered a percussion class, they’d assume you teach kids to play drum set. This is our opportunity to teach our students a skill that they desire and that they can use after their high school instrumental music careers. Previously, drum set instruction was prohibited by the logistical nightmare of multiple kids playing drum sets at once and the space and cost-prohibitive nature of electronic drum sets. Now is the time to explore the future of percussion education utilizing advances in electronic drum sets that make them cheaper, smarter and perfect for a new generation of drummers. Your gifts will purchase the drum sets, hardware, and software necessary to teach, record, assess and allow free student practice on state of the art percussion technology. With your help, percussion curriculum can meet the 21st century where the formal, classical concert percussion repertoire can meet the vast, progressive and diverse percussion vision of the future where drum set is king. Requesting $6139 plus cost reimbursement.

2019 Senior Post Prom

The Senior Prom will take place on May 4, 2019 at the David L. Lawrence Convention Center from 7:30-11:30 p.m. Following the prom, our senior parents/guardians are planning the Post-Prom which will be held at NASH from midnight to 5 a.m. The theme for the Post-Prom is Pittsburgh - We Are Family.  Post-Prom committees need your help! 

The Post Prom is a gift to our students from our community and parents to celebrate and recognize their success.  The Post Prom provides a safe and supervised environment for our students as they celebrate the end of their high school experience.  The Post Prom also serves as a gift back to our community, our first responders, and to our families and children.  When students are provided with safe alternatives, they are less likely to engage in behaviors that can have a tragic impact our community.  Donations made to this account will benefit our seniors directly and will put towards decorations, food, entertainment, and activities for nearly 600 students.     Please consider donating.
