PERFORMING ARTS ASSOCIATION (PAA)

We would like to invite you to join the Performing Arts Association (PAA) at Indian Hills High School. The PAA is comprised of dedicated parents that support the Performing Arts at Indian Hills High School (IHHS).

If you have a student in the symphonic band, marching band, wind ensemble, orchestra, jazz band, choir, drama, or dance or is active in school productions in any technical fashion, then we are the organization for you!

Accomplishments

Through membership fees, fundraising and patron support the Performing Arts Association:

  • Provides scholarships for performing seniors whose parents belong to the PAA (4 year membership required);
  • Donate gifts to the school to enhance and supplement performing arts programs such as music stands for the band, wireless microphones for stage shows and paid advertising in show programs;
  • Provide financial support for departmental expenses not otherwise covered by the BOE such as accompanists for performances, help defray costs for the annual music department trip;
  • Support the Teen Arts Festival as a venue for students to share their talents, raise money for charity and perform community service;
  • Sponsor the North Jersey Concert Band concert to show students that music does not end at graduation;
  • Promotes awareness of Performing Arts programs and events throughout the school and within the FLOW communities. 

Get Involved!

 Because of the vibrant arts environment and outstanding parent, student, teacher and administrative support at IHHS, the PAA can help create a ripple effect that will positively impact our students’ lives. We represent YOUR concerns to the Board of Education. We recognize that our strength as an organization stands with the size of our membership and that is why we became an active committee of the PTSO.
