Did you play an instrument? Did jazz capture your attention?
Our students are the hardest working students in our district.
They work hard to achieve academic and personal success. Our school enrolls students regardless of their past record, and is setting them on a path to high school and college success. Last year, the school raised test scores and API. A strong music and band program will allow these scores to soar even higher.
I'm requesting a new saxophone to get one step closer to completing the school band. It's important for the band to have a balanced sound and all of the instruments are important to complete this sound. The saxophone bridges the gap between brass and woodwind. It fits into their timbres and balances the overall sound. The saxophone is also important as the school starts a small jazz band and captures the attention of all students.
Music education is a crucial element of a student's overall school experience.
Students who learn music are more likely to be success in math and english. Music teaches patience, teamwork and dedication. Allow our school to have the full band experience!
