CD Player for School Plays

The cost of a Dual Cassette Recorder/CD Player Boom Box from Teacher's School Supply is $257, including shipping and <a target="new" href="http://www.donorschoose.org/html/fulfillment.htm" onclick="g_openWindow('http://www.donorschoose.org/html/fulfillment.htm', 300, 800, 'fulfillwindow');return false;">fulfillment</a>.

I am a music teacher at Albany Lower Elementary School. Our school prides itself on the Christmas and spring plays that our students perform. We have three plays that we rotate each year. Of course, my biggest fear is that some of our equipment will break down in the middle of one of the performances. This is why I am requesting a new CD/Tape player. This equipment will be used during our music class as well as during performances. There are about 500 students in our school in grades PreKindergarten through second. Each student in the school participates in all of the plays. A new CD player could mean the difference in a successful or non-successful performance. The more music a child is exposed to, the more they begin to ENJOY IT. This is my ultimate goal as an elementary music teacher. Please help me stir up a love for the arts in my students!
