My Students

Nearly 50% of our students were brought to the United States from refugee camps around the world. For many this is only their first or second year in the country as well as their first or second year attending school in a formal education setting. Our students are not just learning the same required content as those native-English speakers, but they are also learning to speak and read the English language as well as learn the local culture. Our ESL students are hard working and knowing that they were brought here for a better life, their determination and grit is admirable.

My Project

Our music students suffer from bad posture as a result of trying to play their instruments while placing their music on the floor or on other chairs. With enough music stands the kids can better their body posture and be able to play for longer periods of time each day. The music stands will be used in two guitar classes, one orchestra class, one concert band, and a jazz band. The students will also use the music stands to practice their music outside of class. Either before school or after school. The students will begin to use the new stands immediately.
