My Students

Diversity and inclusion is the mantra that drives each member of our school's staff. Our students' ethnic roots span the globe; Turkish, Russian, Ukraine, Spanish, African American, and many more. Here we see every skin color and many dialects and yet we all come together to work for common understanding. This marriage of backgrounds expands into our curriculum. While we emphasize a strong scientific base we also integrate this with the arts and humanities. The artists become scientists and the scientists discover creativity through the arts. Many of my students struggle with learning, social and emotional disabilities. The economic background is wide and includes many students on the free and reduced-price lunch program.

At our school students strive to develop the intellectual, linguistic, cultural, interpersonal, and advocacy skills needed to succeed in a global future.

They nurture each other through clubs, after school projects, activities and a hope squad whose student members are trained to intervene for a peer in crisis.

They win awards in Robotics, host a yearly STEM fest, win art contests, display great musical abilities and last year our 6th graders beat out Juniors and Seniors in H.S. Utah Entrepreneur Challenge.

My Project

As the head of the Art Department I get to watch the collaboration between the Visual Arts I teach, the Music Arts that our music teacher teaches and all the other classes. On behalf of our music part of the arts here at Beehive I am requesting help in acquiring enough Ukuleles to allow each student to explore their musical creativity.

We integrate STEM standards into our study of this instrument.

Students get supportive learning that covers ratios, division, and graphing. For science we talk about sound waves and vibrations. We connect to technology and engineering by learning how ukuleles are made and the history of the ukulele. Learning the Ukulele creates opportunities for subliminal learning in all STEM areas.

One of the most basic instruments for our students to learn how to create music to accompany voice is the Ukulele. In our classroom we have 5 Ukuleles which we share around. Some students are able to bring their own but without enough instruments it is hard to give each student a proper musical education. The twenty Ukuleles I am requesting for our Music Department is bare minimum for us to make this happen. We are very grateful for your support.
