Ms. Michale from Kansas City MO is requesting Musical Instruments through DonorsChoose, the most trusted classroom funding site for teachers.

Please Help our Theatre Program Succeed!

My students need basic classroom school supplies such as highlighters, Kleenex, hand sanitizer, and pens. We currently do not have any mic stands or stand lights and the toilet is a prop for the upcoming play!

My Students

My students are incredible. They amaze me on a daily basis. My students are what motivate me to work hard and keep doing my job to the best of my ability each and every day. They do not have the same resources that the students in the surrounding neighborhoods have. We do not receive the same kind of funding that most districts receive.

Seeing my students succeed and perform in a production is the most amazing and indescribable feeling.

My students receive free breakfast, lunch and an after school meal. They work incredibly hard and put their entire heart and soul into the productions we create each semester.

My Project

These items will make a TREMENDOUS difference in the lives of my students! We currently do not have any microphone stands or working music stands at the moment. We also do not have clip lights for our orchestra and band students to use when they play the music for our musicals. We have been creating make-shift alternatives for the past few years and it would be amazing (and definitely how it should be) for my students to have what all of the other schools have!

This project is full of some very random items but I promise they will all go to very good use this school year!

We have basically no budget provided to us for our productions and this year we have decided to attempt three main stage productions! The toilet is for our upcoming Spring Play production of Love/Sick. We are also producing a Spring Musical as well this year, Once on This Island. The pens, markers, and other classroom supplies are greatly needed right now because we are basically out of everything and definitely in need. The cleaning supplies, Kleenex, and hand sanitizer are needed backstage on a regular basis!
