My Students

Our school was ranked in the top 10 percent of high schools in the nation for the third consecutive year. Our middle and high schools are International Baccalaureate (IB) World Schools offering the IB Middle Years Programme. With diverse knowledge of the world, students are able to grow, each day, in and out of the classroom.

What better way to prepare middle school students to join these successes (and even exceed them) than by giving them the most artistic opportunity possible?

My Project

My students just received brand new ukuleles (WHAT A TREAT!), but I fear they will not last long if we do not have somewhere other than a box in the corner to store them in! Something as simple as storage is SO expensive!

We need your help to buy a simple, compact, and effective ukulele rack to store our instruments on so that they last us!

Ukuleles are a much cheaper alternative to exploring musical instruments for a demographic that has varying levels of income. My students are ecstatic to be able to have their hands on and instruments and perform with them, as well as extend their knowledge of music. The kids also have a Penny Wars fundraiser going in attempt to supplement! They are willing to do whatever it takes to for these ukuleles!
