Stand-Up For Music In Our School!
My students need music stands and classroom basics.
I teach General Music to 4th and 5th grade students. I truly enjoy finding new ways to integrate the arts and academics, particularly reading and math skills. I am so blessed: every day I get to see the positive influence a solid arts education can have on a student's educational career.
Our students are high-need with a large percentage of special education, free and reduced lunch students and minorities.
(Our largest minority group is Native American students.) Over a third of the parents in our school district do not have a high school diploma. Our rural community is in an economically depressed area with high unemployment. Enrichment through Donor's Choose would vastly enrich and improve student opportunities.
My students and I are requesting nine new music stands for classroom rehearsals and community performance opportunities. I'm proud of my students for learning to read music but now we need stands to hold our sheet music for our ensemble rehearsals. We are also in need of basic classroom supplies like germicide to clean our recorders and help control the spread of germs.
With the help of Donors Choose, my students will enjoy music even more than they do now!
Donors Choose can be a part of helping my students become 'tuned in and turned on' to become life-long learners. Their needs are great, but with your help, their opportunities can be even greater!
DonorsChoose makes it easy for anyone to help a classroom in need. Public school teachers from every corner of America create classroom project requests, and you can give any amount to the project that inspires you.
