My Students

Our school strives to give our students the best learning environment, as well as opportunities to showcase their skills and talents. Our outstanding children not only soar academically, but also enjoy partaking in arts like Band, Theatre and Dance. We aim for the best performances possible and understand the importance of hard work and diligence.

My students have been persistent, practicing and prepping since the beginning of the school year for our annual holiday show.

We would love to be able to purchase this equipment for them to use.

My Project

Two times a year, my students get to showcase their talents in front of their family and friends.

This is the first year we will be having the performances at school, away from any outside resources that provide microphones and headsets.

Without these headsets, our performances will truly be at a deficit with sound. We only have one wireless hand-held microphone and we need at least three to share around. It is not only just acting, but dancing.

In order to make our shows effective and successful, we need to provide our kids with wireless headsets so they can move around freely without thinking about tripping over cables or having to share hand-held mics between two hundred students.
