Mrs. Knight from Columbus KS is requesting Other through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Performing in a Musical Extravaganza

My students need 150 small while t-shirts.

Hooray! This project is fully funded

All subjects wrapped up into one... MUSIC! I am the music teacher at two different schools that include grades K-6. I teach general and instrumental music. My area is a high-need community with little funds but with a lot of interest in the arts.

The community I live in is a small, all-American community that has a lot of pride but little funding. This year I have no funding for anything except the money we make as a class. The one thing this community loves is a time to get together and so I thought I would combine their love for country and a chance to get together. My goal is to create a toe-tappin', hand clappin', tear wipin' patriotic program that will inspire the students and make our community proud of them and what they're becoming with the the help of the school.

I currently have no money given to me by the school to make any of this happen. We've had many cuts in our budget and whatever money we have is what we've earned on our own. We draw from local people and businesses for props, flags and staging. We also draw from other music teachers for music and sound. We currently need T-shirts for each child to make this a blow-out program that will not only serve as staging but also as art in the classroom when we paint on them.

Your help will ensure that my students experience community through art and music and encourage support for education from not only businesses but from local people.
