My middle school has over 800 students across two grade levels with over 75% being minority students, over 65% economically disadvantaged students, and over 30% of the students are ELLs. While these statistics may be staggering for most people, these students do not let anything hold them back, least of all statistics.
Despite these challenges that my students face, they enter my classroom brimming with energy and with an unquenchable thirst for learning.
These students amaze me every day with their hard work and talent. Many of these students would never have an opportunity to study music and the arts if it was not offered within our school. Knowing this, the students come to class fully engaged and push themselves beyond the limits of what they thought they could possibly achieve. Any challenge I throw at them is met with a smile and determination to overcome it.
Hello everyone! My students are in need of some new pianos. Three years ago we introduced piano into our general music classes, and our students loved having such an opportunity. The pianos we originally received were preowned and are now starting to fall apart, much to the devastation of our students. We only have a few left in working order, and we are worried that we will not be able to continue offering piano as an option in general music if we do not receive replacements.
Our pianos are reaching the ends of their lives and we want to continue offering our students the opportunity to learn piano.
My students and I are asking for your help to continue offering piano as an option in our general music classes. We are asking for your help to receive four brand new pianos that the students will be able to use. I teach approximately 400 eighth grade music students, in addition to my fellow music teacher teaching approximately 400 seventh graders. Your donation would help impact the lives of about 800 students!
Any donation is appreciated and will help us reach our goal!
