Hooray! This project is fully funded
My students truly are shining STARS! We have a very diverse campus of students in Grades K-5. As their music teacher, I have the honor of helping them shine on and off the stage. Especially through our most recent challenge as a school family.
Our elementary school was flooded during Hurricane Harvey last year and our students and staff were displaced onto two different campuses (K-2 at one school and 3-5 at another school).
I traveled between the two schools all year to teach them and tried to help create a sense of normalcy through music. I am so proud of their resiliency and how we persevered!
My students and I have been learning how to play the ukulele for the very first time this school year and it has truly helped us strum up some sunshine after the traumatic experience of losing everything to Hurricane Harvey. Thanks to a previously funded project we now have 20 ukuleles in our classroom to share between us.
As our community rebuilds, my class sizes are steadily increasing and we need 10 more ukuleles in order to always have enough for everyone.
It would also be super helpful for me to have my own teacher sized ukulele to use in class and for concerts.
We all know that music makes us smarter but I can honestly say that the ukulele has also brought my students and I so much #Joy post Hurricane Harvey and helped us to recover and heal. Please consider donating to this project to help us have a complete class set and shout hip hip hooray!
