On Oct. 8 from 12-3pm, students from Lakewood High's performing arts programs will take their "Feet to the Street" to knock on the doors of our neighbors, thank them for their support, and invite them to attend a performance this year. This event serves as a major fundraiser for Lakewood Music Boosters, which supports programs throughout the District. Please help support our Boosters, who provide so much to our students!
