Mrs. Becnel from Carriere MS is requesting Musical Instruments through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Instruments for All

My students need flutes to be able to participate in my class. Students in need are unable to purchase their own instrument and need a school owned instrument to borrow.

My Students

It is difficult to describe my kids using words. These kids describe themselves through their actions.

I have never met students more deserving of the world than my band kids.

They absolutely give their heart and do everything that is asked of them, no matter how new or challenging. These kids have stuck it out through thick and thin, in good times and in bad, through numerous obstacles. This band is a family that some of these students have never had. These kids support each other, they build each other up, they keep each other humble, but most importantly they care for each other.

My Project

I have students in my program that are in need of instruments in order to be able to participate in band.

By the purchase and funding of this project all students interested in joining my band program will be able to enjoy and learn.

These flutes will bring great joy to the life of a child because they can participate and be engaged in the world of music. If this project is not funded, students that are currently in need of an instrument will not be able to participate in my program due to the lack of school owned equipment for use.
