Mr. Tabone from Orlando FL is requesting Computers & Tablets through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

CCHS Marching Band

My students need one MacBook Pro Laptop for our fall marching band productions, musical pit orchestra and to do recordings for auditions. A high powered machine will allow for our students to be more successful.

My Students

Our students are the hardest working students I have ever worked with.

Our students have to work with what they have and most of our equipment is over 10-20 years old.

Giving the students the best opportunity is our mission. Our students are comprised of 75% Hispanic and 25% other. This year due to Hurricane Maria we had an influx of Puerto Rican students and our students welcomed these students with open arms. CCHS is a school unlike any other.

My Project

The Apple MacBook Pro you will help us purchase will help our students succeed inside and outside the classroom.

Our students will be able to record themselves for auditions, video assignments, and performances.

We will use the laptop for our fall productions and for our musical productions.

We will be starting a music technology program this year and our students will have the access to record live performances, work with the industry standard software and work on projects. Getting out in the field and out of the classroom will help our students have a leg up on entering the work force with a trade skill.
