My Students

Our school serves over 900 students in grades K-8 who live in a historic area of the city. Our staff consists of teachers who are dedicated to instilling our motto of "Si se puede" (Yes, we can) in all students.

Music is new to the school, and the community is excited about the variety of musical opportunities being provided to them.

This is the second year of having a music education program which promotes creativity while meeting National and State Standards in Music Education. My goal is to provide students with a variety of music making experiences while strengthening our school and neighborhood communities. All students deserve to be provided with the opportunity of discovering what music means to them through music making activities.

I believe music can be one way to bring a group of people together. It is a way to define your identity, something that students of all age groups can use to express themselves. Offering creative outlets provides balance to people of all ages, at home, work and in the community. Music education has a positive impact on students' personal and professional lives.

My Project

Our students have been fortunate to use a variety of instruments for musical experiences from kindergarten through eighth grades. We have stringed instruments like ukuleles and guitars, woodwind instruments such as recorders, miscellaneous rhythm instruments, World Music drums and brass instruments like the pBone and pTrumpets.

We need instrument covers to help our investment last many years.

Our cajones currently have no cases but we use towels to prevent dust and scratches. Our keyboards do not have covers either. This project will allow us to cover the instruments while they are not being used and while they are in storage over the summer. Please help us ensure our inventory of instruments are protected.
