Mrs. S. from Colorado Springs CO is requesting Musical Instruments through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Middle School Band Reeds

Help me give my students the gift of music by providing them clarinet and saxophone reeds for their woodwind instruments!

Hooray! This project is fully funded

My Students

Great students in a great school! Our school is a Title I middle school (grades 6-8) with over 80 students in the band program (beginning, intermediate, and advanced bands). The majority of students involved in the band program use school-owned instruments during their band careers in middle and high school. There is outstanding support for the program in the school. However, the band program itself has a limited budget and is unable to sustain purchasing supplies for students in the program.

My Project

This project is all about our middle school young musicians! They love to play and perform for family and friends. However, purchasing reeds is a struggle. Over 85% of our students receive free or reduced lunches. Our families struggle to purchase reeds for their students. We need your help!

Helping to fund this project will allow our young musicians to focus on what they love -- making music -- and not have to worry about how they will be able to purchase more clarinet and saxophone reeds.

It is a great relief to the students knowing that they will have the supplies they need and will not be left out.
