In honor of ACL, let’s talk about LASA’s own version of ACL, called Coffeehouse! SAVE THE DATE: May 15th, 2020, 7pm Coffeehouse is LASA’s version of a mini-ACL. It is on the Friday night of the last day of AP Testing. Faculty, students and parents are invited to attend. The school (especially Mr. Snyder) takes care of all the auditions and line-up. Students sign up and audition. There are 2 stages for performances. Everyone that goes must purchase a wristband. Some say it’s a talent show… I don’t really think it is. I think it is much more than that. The acts are INCREDIBLE. They are OUR KIDS and they do amazing things that aren’t just academic. My most favorite part of this whole event is HOW SUPPORTIVE all of the LASA students are to their fellow classmates as they perform. A-MA-ZING PEOPLE!

So why am I telling you this? Duh. Because PFLASA pays for this WHOLE EVENT. Almost everyone goes. We have to rent out a venue (American Legion on Atlanta St next to Mopac and Lake Austin Blvd), we have to rent stages and lights and sound equipment. It is a MAJOR production. And it is the CELEBRATION for these kids for surviving, thriving, living, and loving. We do sell wristbands closer to the event but that is because we have to have security and know who is coming in. A couple of years ago, a couple was walking on the trail at Lady Bird Lake and came to the ticket table I was working and asked what band was playing and could they buy a ticket. IT WAS THAT GOOD… but alas, no… it’s a private event. We are talking about 2000 of us together for one night.

Have you been?

Anyway, please help us put on this event. Donate today! It really is a collaboration of all entities at LASA: STUDENTS, FACULTY and PARENTS.

p.s. thank you to our chairperson Kristy Kelly Neff for putting on this event!
