My Students

We were a small band and orchestra program with just under 40 students in band and 0 in orchestra when I started three years ago, but due to our success over the last two years, our numbers are increasing to over 50 students in the band and almost 20 in orchestra.

These students want to be great and I want to help to give them the opportunity to do so.

My students work really hard. This program has been through some ups and downs over the last several years and these students have stuck through it all to persevere into a great program. This year was my third as director and my students reached great heights that the program has rarely seen. We want to be able to continue the momentum from the last two years but we have many needs. We are so appreciative of any help you can provide.

My Project

These shelving units will allow my newly formed String Orchestra class to have a proper place to store their personal instruments so that they are out of the way and will not be damaged.

By donating to this project, you will be helping to give these students a sense of belonging.

These storage shelves will allow theme to have a HOME to put things.

These students are new to our Band Program and giving them a proper place to store their belongings and instruments will help them to feel like they are part of the WHOLE program and not just an afterthought.
