My Students

Offering our music students the chance to succeed is my top priority. We strive daily to make opportunities available for our high school students to further their musical skills and expand their horizons.

Students attending our school have earned recognition at the district, state, regional and national level.

We have alumni working on Broadway, teaching college and public school music, and performing as professionals all over the world. Our music department has a 100+ year history of excellence and we try every day to live up to that legacy. We offer jazz band, two levels of string orchestra and concert band, pep band and marching band. We also have strong choral, guitar, drama and fine arts programs.

My Project

About eighteen months ago, we had an incident in our school and the rugs in my band room office were destroyed. That leaves my office as a rather stark and cold place. I'd like to change that back to the warm, welcoming environment my students are used to. The rugs I had in there before were plain blue, but this new one should add a splash of color to an institutional tile floor.

Students always need to know that they have a safe place in my office.

The rug will also help with sound absorption - a very big deal since I teach band and orchestra.

The shoe racks I'm requesting are to help with organizing the white Marching Band shoes and the Black Dress shoes we use for concerts. I have a large number of shoes for students to use if they cannot provide their own. It would be nice to have them stored in a neat and tidy way in the closet. Currently they are in a big jumble on the bottom of the closet. It is driving me a little crazy! Nearly everything else in my room is organized - I'd like to complete the look. Kids tend to respond better to a clean environment.
