Hooray! This project is fully funded

I am a K-8 music teacher in Yadkinville, North Carolina. I recently attended a 9/11 remembrance ceremony with my 6-8 graders. During the ceremony the song "God Bless America" was performed, and the audience was asked to sing along. A few of my students were able to sing along, but most did not know the words. I would like to do something to keep this from happening again. The Music Educators National Conference (MENC) has put together a collection of songs that every American should know, including "God Bless America." This collection of songs is entitled "Get America Singing Again." I would like to purchase this set of songs and CDs, so that I can teach my students many of the great songs about our nation. Thank you in advance for helping me pass on pride and knowledge about our country through music to the next generation.
