We are a small, K–8, Title I, public school in the heart of Oakland, CA. We serve a diverse group of learners and families who come to us with widely-varying hopes and needs.
Our school is a place where students are learning to be dynamic individuals while supporting their community.
We are helping students discover their strengths and make goals and plans to meet those goals. Through expeditionary learning and arts education, we are supporting students in finding personalized ways to learn.
We need xylophones and mallets so that we can play music together! In year three of our performing arts program, we are still trying to purchase and build up our instrument library for ensemble work. Currently, we have two or three students sharing each instrument and pair of mallets, which makes it hard for them to have time on the instrument and learn the music we are working on. Having a full set of mallets will allow for us to work on mallet techniques and exercises to increase comfort and accuracy on the percussion instruments. Students will be able to do so much more with a mallet in each hand!
