Have you heard? Music and Arts Partners (MAP) has a new website!
The look may have changed but MAP’s mission remains the same. We are proud to share with you the new MAP website! The address is still the same: http://www.musicandartspartners.org.
While the site has a new look, donations to the MAP general fund and the Lynne Detrick Instrument Memorial Fund can still be processed online. We hope you will check it often for events and updates to all that is happening with MAP and music and arts education in the district.
MAP is an independent, volunteer, nonprofit organization that works to advocate and promote arts and music education in the West Linn-Wilsonville School District.

Education Foundation to Host 6th Annual Night with the Portland Trail Blazers!
The West Linn-Wilsonville Education Foundation is excited to announce the 6th Annual WLWV Education Foundation’s “Night with the Portland Trail Blazers"!
You won’t want to miss out on a fun evening with friends and family as our Portland Trail Blazers take on the Detroit Pistons at the Moda Center on February 23, 2020.
As in years past, ticket holders will have the opportunity to participate in at least one experience. First, all ticket holders who purchase through the West Linn-Wilsonville Education Foundation link will have the opportunity to go onto the court after the game and shoot a free throw. This has been a very popular activity over the past five years. Second, any tickets purchased for children between the ages of 6 and 13 will be entered into a drawing to participate in the pre-game Courtside Kids experience.
Ticket Sales will open in December — stay tuned! For any questions please contact Michele Beyer at firstname.lastname@example.org.
