LAA ACTIVITY PASS
An LAA Activity Pass entitles the bearer to enter any home sporting event (middle school, junior varsity & varsity), entrance to the One Act Theatre with Sweets event, and one entrance into our annual musical. LAA Activity Passes do not cover tournaments or post season games*. LAA Activity Passes are available for individuals, families and seniors (65+)

LAA's main funding source of revenue is from operation/working the concession stand at all home activities. Each LAA family is to serve up to four (4) times in the concession stand each year. This may be for volleyball/basketball in the concession stand at Lourdes Central Catholic or at Nebraska City Public Schools for home football games. If a situation arises that you are unable to work the time that your were scheduled, please find a replacement. Junior and Senior students can serve as replacements and can earn Community Service Hours. Shifts are normally two (2) hours or less.
300 numbers are sold at $50 per number for a total of $15,000. Of that, LAA pays out $9000 to lucky winners. The remaining $6000 is retained by LAA and used for general expenses throughout the year. Drawings are held at various Lourdes Central Catholic events. At each drawing event, Eight (8) winners receive $50, the three (3) winners receive $100 and one winner receives $200. Winning numbers are returned, allowing 300 Club participants to win multiple times.
LAA Meetings are held to update members on funded activities and projects and to obtain season and activity updates from coaches, sponsors and administration. Meetings are held at 7:00 p.m. at Table Creek Club House Restaurant.
Parents are encouraged to volunteer their time, talent, and treasures to Lourdes. Volunteers in the elementary perform a wide variety of duties such as helping in the lunchroom, shelving books in the library, correcting papers, listening to student prayers, and helping with art activities. Please contact the elementary principal if you would like to volunteer.
