Mrs. Bourne from Sioux City IA is requesting Supplies through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Ring the Bells!

My students need a variety of jingle bells. Preparing for our holiday concert, we discovered that many of our existing bells are broken or do not work as they should.

My Students

We like to add extra instruments to our songs and dances in class and in programs for the parents and friends of our school.

My students are in an at-risk, lower economic school.

They value the extra instruments that complete our sound. Their singing and dancing is top notch, but our instruments are old and falling apart. My students deserve to have newer, better bells for performances.

My Project

I am asking for a class set of wrist jingle bells that are suitable for every grade of students at my school. The flexible nature of the bands make a kindergartner successful as well as a 5th grader. I have added a set of tone bells and a CD for practicing Jingle Bell Rock for the concert to the order.

My students always provide a beautiful and fun program.

Our materials are becoming out-dated and falling apart from use over the years. Your help will be greatly appreciated as we enjoy these bells for years to come!
