My Students

Greetings! My students are part of a community that prides itself on responsibility and respect, they are part of "Our House!" The students have many rich and varied experiences that allow them to grow into mature, productive citizens.

The community our school exists in is a blend of diverse ethnic, economic and social backgrounds.

Our community has incredible educational and professional opportunities, yet has a strong heart toward those growing and finding their place in society. It is a rich, inclusive environment.

My Project

Our students perform four major performances each year. Each concert is seen by two or three audiences. Capturing the sound for our elementary voices is essential for parents, grandparents and community to hear and enjoy their joyful efforts!

The speakers, stands and cables for this project will connect with a wonderful mixer/amplifier set up that we received this year.

Performances require extensive practices, planning, resources and staff assistance. The work that students do and the learning that takes place are only communicated adequately when audiences can fully hear and appreciate their efforts. We are excited for the possibility of clearly sharing our "joyful sounds!"
