My Students

My school is a diverse middle school in a rural town. We offer rigorous academics, a variety of clubs and a diverse arts program. About 45% of the population are second language learners, with over 40% of these children receiving free or reduced fees with the federal lunch program.

Our goal is that students have a well-rounded education that includes a rich theater arts program open to all.

Our performing arts program is enjoyed by our entire school, but in our acoustically inadequate gym, it is difficult to hear actors and singers. We do our best as a staff to provide for all of the needs of our population.

My Project

The students at our school take pride in our theater program. With approximately fifty percent of our school in theater, dance or band. We have always worked hard to have amazing shows.

These microphones will make it possible to really showcase the talents we have.

The headset mics allow students to sing, dance and act hands-free. With this donation, an entire group of performers can express themselves at the same time. This gift will greatly benefit our current student population, but also will be used for years to come and benefit our future actors and singers as well. What a difference it makes when an audience can clearly hear a production.
