The Arts People

The Arts People Booster Club Mission

The Arts People (TAP) is the PARISHarts booster club, which supports the arts in our Parish community. Parish parents, relatives, staff, and other supporters are welcome to join TAP.

Recognizing the significant impact the arts have on our community, culture, and school, TAP provides support to the many arts programs available to our students and within the broader Parish community. Our mission is two-fold: 1.) Promote awareness of all programs, productions, artwork, achievements, and activities; 2.) Provide financial assistance to PARISHarts through fund-raising, primarily with membership dues, that helps PARISHarts further enrich the lives of our students and the Parish community. 

This past year, we missed many of TAP’s traditional activities, but we kept moving forward. We took TAPpy Hour, our annual member kick-off party, online with great performances from current students and alumnus Griffin Holtby. We treated PARISHarts faculty and staff to some supportive surprises along the way. And, we held what may become a new tradition, a per trimester get-together, “Happy Hour with Hutch,” lead by our new Director of PARISHarts! TAP is looking forward now to the 2021-22 school year bursting with not only the return of normal activities but with celebrations galore for the opening of the Noble Family Performing Arts Center and Parish’s 50th Anniversary year! Please join us as we enter a new era in PARISHarts as the mission of The Arts People elevates to new heights! PARISHarts programs:
