Our urban middle school is home to five wonderful bands. Nearly all of the students rely on school instruments. Many of our project requests focus on instrument repair, instrument accessories, and actual instruments. Additionally, several of other projects focus on school-wide initiatives like our school PBIS team which promotes positive behavior and offers supportive interventions when necessary. We also actively work on restorative practices at our school where we seek to make meaningful change in relationships between everyone at the school. Discipline should be purposeful, not punitive. We have recently added advisories to our school that meet first thing in the morning. Advisories are kept small and nearly every adult in the building runs one. This has greatly impacted our overall school climate. Finally, we have a student-led focus group to promote positive change in our school and community.
