The Center for the Arts is the entertainment hub of our area.  What finer and more enjoyable way to support our students and community than by working with a group of volunteers who are deeply committed to “Education, enrichment, and entertainment!”

When Bond Measure C passed, our school community was elated that music students would no longer have to perform in the cafeteria.  The CFA was everything we hoped for and added a touch of elegance to our performances.  Students felt like rock stars and were extremely proud to be performing on stage.
