Mr. Lennon from Easthampton MA is requesting Musical Instruments through DonorsChoose, the most trusted classroom funding site for teachers.
Help me give my students these chairs because we do not have enough seats since our band has grown tremendously this year!!
My students are some of the most accepting people I have ever met. They absolutely love coming to band and they are so excited to learn and do well. I have been very fortunate and blessed with how accepting they are of all people from different walks of life and they are always surprising me with really how much they learn and process throughout the years with me.
I am also very surprised with how my students can come from all walks of life/ability levels and put together such an amazing product.
My students range in age from 10-14 and some are high achieving/gifted students and others have IEP's. They all work cohesively as a team and create some amazing music and strong relationships that I am sure will last much longer than their middle school years. The willingness that I encounter every day from my students to take on simple and complex tasks is overwhelming and really makes my job one of the greatest things I have in my life.
This year I have over 90 returning students to my band program. This is the largest number of returning band students this school has ever seen. I am also anticipating signing up another 60-70 beginner students. As of right now I only have 68 of these chairs. These chairs are essential for good posture and good playing positioning.
The 68 chairs that we have now are exactly like these and we got them about 4 years ago and they have made a massive difference in both the sound of the ensembles and also professionalism throughout our performances.
We look uniform and people take what we do seriously and the band has been quoted by the principal as "the best thing that we have to offer here at our school."
