We have students from many different backgrounds. We have students who come from middle class backgrounds as well as many who come from low income households. Our low income students are not always able to get the needed supplies to be successful in the band setting. Buying reeds, mouthpieces, books and other supplies can be out of their reach.
I do nonstop fundraising to fill in the gap, but it's never enough to cover the needs.
Many of the students are force to share in the classroom, but they then do not have materials to take home to practice for continued growth. Please help me continue to provided every student with a quality band experience.
I would like to continue getting needed supplies for our band program. In this project, I am focusing on the need for books that will allow every student the ability to study in class as well as at home. This will be a great help for student development on instruments. The more they are able to practice, the better they will develop on their instrument.
I would also like to get more needed music stands.
This will allow everyone to a music stand during the ensemble rehearsal. Please help me continue to provided every student with a quality band experience .
