My students need 10 wooden stools for use in our percussion class.

Hooray! This project is fully funded
Our music program is blossoming with students who are eager to achieve greatness!
Our students live in a small rural county in Kentucky.
Our school is very small with only 250 students in grades 6-8 with 75% on free and reduced lunch. Our students are great, and the successes we've experienced in our music program is a testament to our students. We set the bar high and our work hard to meet it, even against the hardships they and their families face.
We are asking for 10 wooden stools for the percussion students in our band classes to use. During class the percussion students are seated in the back of the room behind three rows of woodwinds and brass students. The percussion students have a very difficult time seeing the white board and the teacher when seated because of their blocked views. Having stools for the students to sit on would help elevate them and engage them during class.
In addition, the stools would be utilized for students to place their practice pads so that All ten percussionists can drum along where currently we only have two snares to use at once.
Donations to this project would help increase student engagement during class, help the students see the materials on the board, help with classroom management and discipline increasing the amount of work we can get done.
Additionally, being able to have all 10 percussion students being able to drum along at once (where before only 2 at a time was possible) will increase the performance abilities in each percussion student.
