Ms. Patnode from Seffner FL is requesting Supplies through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

A Rockin' Guitar Rack

My students need four 7-Guitar racks to store and organize the acoustic guitars that were donated to us by Little Kids Rock.

  • $370 goal

This project expired on February 14, 2013.

Hooray! This project is fully funded

My Students

Help us to keep our guitars safe and organized! Our rockin' acoustic guitars need a stand to call home so that our students will have quick, safe, and easy access to them during music class.

Our students attend a Title I elementary school in rural Florida.

The population at our school is considered "high poverty," with approximately 80% of our students receiving "free and reduced lunch" every day. The students at our school are kind, talented, and enthusiastic, and they love playing the guitars that were donated to us by the "Little Kids Rock" foundation and Donors Choose!

My Project

These guitar racks will help to keep our classroom instruments more organized and will allow for easier access by the students when we need to use them in the classroom. The reduction in "transition time" will allow them more time to play their instruments!

In funding this project, you will be providing my students with a more organized classroom, as well as more opportunities to make music!

It will also keep our guitars safe and in good condition, allowing us to play them for many more years to come.
