Mrs. Kowert from Madison WI is requesting Supplies through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Let the Childrens' Voices Be Heard:On With the Shows!

My students need 2 microphones to be heard while performing their musicals.

Hooray! This project is fully funded

We have a high poverty rate in our school. I am a music teacher that puts on musicals with each grade level. Performing musicals is something that our students will most likely never experience outside of school.

Our district only budgets 2.7% for the fine arts (K-12). We are fortunate to have music offered to the children but there is little money budgeted for supplies. We are a high poverty school with little involvement from the parents and consequently we do not get much help from the Parent Organization.

In order to perform musicals we need microphones so that the children can be heard. We have over 400 children that participate in musicals every year.

Every child likes to be noticed and to perform. It builds their self-esteem and confidence which affects many areas in their lives. If we had microphones we could actually hear the children speak and say their lines.
