My Students

My students would greatly benefit from an upgrade in the classroom. They thrive when utilizing technology in an educational setting. Unfortunately there is not enough technology to be shared across the school. Students are often paired with each other and use classroom resources when lessons attempt to incorporate current technology.

My students are enthusiastic about learning and love to work cooperatively.

They truly shine when they are engaged in an interactive assignment. They tend to welcome any form of technology and would love something new to spice up their learning environment.

My Project

My students need a Victrola Entertainment Center for the classroom. Unfortunately the classroom record player we relied upon recently broke and we are in need of a new record player.

When it comes to tests, individual assignments, or group work, music can help students to relax and provide them some background noise to be able to work on their work.

The Victrola record player will provide students with the music they need in order to accomplish their work and add a bit enjoyment to their school day. They will be able to hear the sounds of jazz, swing, and orchestral records once again with the help of donors.
