Music Parents (RECMAPA)

The River East Collegiate Musical Arts Parent Association

The River East Collegiate Musical Arts Parent Association’s (RECMAPA) purpose is to support and enhance the REC music program. This renowned music program benefits our children, our school and our community.

 RECMAPA works to support our music instructors and to establish a fund to supplement music equipment and instrument repairs, endow scholarships and offer opportunities for students to participate in clinics and workshops. RECMAPA also supports the staff and students by coordinating all concerts, applying for grants, and promoting the program in the community.

 Here are some ways you can help:

  • Volunteer your time and talents on the RECMAPA Board: Attend monthly RECMAPA meetings
  • Prepare Concert Tickets for Distribution: 2 winter concerts & 2 spring concerts
  • Assist at Concerts: Door hosts, programs, collect donations
  • Assist with Fundraising Activities and Preparations: Collect & distribute funds for Sobeys & other gift cards, assist with other fundraisers as needed, manage student accounts
  • Support Teachers: Identify and prepare grant submissions, other activities as defined

Join us at our RECMAPA meetings in the RIVER EAST COLLEGIATE (REC) library. Our next meeting will take place on Wednesday, October 11, at 6:00 PM.

 Have questions about getting involved? Please contact your child’s music teacher. We look forward to hearing from you!

Thank you for supporting your child’s musical education!

 Thank you for supporting your child’s musical education!

Music programs really benefit the students in terms of skill development, teamwork and positive social interaction. These programs also have considerable expenses, which music parents have been exemplary in helping to defray in one form or another. One of those forms is the $25 music fee which acts as a foundation for the entire budget. We would invite and really welcome the rest of our parent supporters to contribute their fee payment at this time.
