Ms. Rone from Oklahoma City OK is requesting Instructional Technology through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Lights! Camera! Action!

My students need 3 stands and backdrop curtains for a makeshift stage given ours was removed due to a remodel of the school.

My Students

My school is a multicultural inner city school full of 750+ ambitious students. Most of my students love to watch and/or participate in our school performing arts. But as the school was being remodeled, the stage was completely eliminated and our performing arts program suffered.

Given the socioeconomic status of the area, most of my students haven't had the opportunity to participate in performing arts programs outside of school.

And given the cultural diversity in my school's area, most of my students aren't even aware of the performing arts programs that are offered.

This is my third year at my current school so I'm just getting started. I have created an honor choir, and I'm currently working on building a music/dance/drama program school wide. Hopefully by creating a network of support, it will enable my performing arts program to grow.

My Project

My school no longer has a stage due to the last remodel of the building. Therefore, we only have a gymnasium for our fine arts programs. We are fortunate enough to have a 1 foot platform to use, but we haven't a backdrop. The stands and curtains needed for our programs will help with the following:

*quick set up as we have very little time to prepare the stage for programs

*a proper background for videos and pictures as this looks much better than a cinder block wall

*decorations- we will be able to attach small paper decor to jazz it up.

*easy storage- we have few small storage areas to store smaller items
