My Students

My students shine in our community with their unique and culturally diverse backgrounds. Each day they fill our hallways with multiple languages, interesting traditions and fascinating stories to share in their classrooms and our fine arts programs.

Eager to learn, enthusiastic about creating beautiful music, and engaged to develop their musicianship skills, my students thrive in a musical setting!

I wish you could see the joy in their faces when they make music! They have very few materials, so I hope you will consider donaiing to this project. Thank you!

My Project

My students love to make music, but they need instruments and writing supplies. I have many multi-language learners who are eager to learn English. I have learned they develop their English speaking skills quickly while engaged in music making and music writing activities. However, my students don't have enough materials or instruments for everyone to play an instrument together during class. In addition, they lack writing materials, especially markers for their writing projects.

I'm requesting Remo Hand Drums, Egg Shakers, and Boomwhacker Octivator Tube Caps.

I also need Crayola markers which will be used for classroom charts and projects.

Please help fill my music room with instruments and supplies to enhance my students' music curriculum and their music making experiences.

My students and I thank you in advance!
