Friends of Cooperstown Central School Music and Art (FoMA) is an all-volunteer organization that was formed in 1994 to encourage, support and strengthen music and arts education within the Cooperstown Central School District and to promote parental involvement in public education.
FoMA works closely with music and art teachers at Cooperstown Central School. FoMA funds art awards, NYS School Music Association (NYSSMA) medals, Slam Poetry prizes and the Concerto Competition. Throughout the year, FoMA provides scholarships to students in grades K-12 attending arts and music-related camps and lessons. FoMA continues to provide every third grader with a recorder and a booklet of music which can be used in the classroom and at home.
Students in the Cooperstown School District completing grades K-12 in June are eligible to apply for financial assistance to attend educational programs in instrumental music, vocal music, visual art, writing, theater or dance.
The award, up to $500.00, will be made payable to the program the student will be attending. To apply, complete this application form and the scholarship essay. The deadline for application for summer programs is June 1. Applications for school year programs are reviewed as submitted.
FoMA meets at 7 p.m. on the first Thursday of each month in the Jr./Sr. High School Faculty Room, which is across the hall from the cafeteria. FoMA welcomes and encourages public participation and ideas.
