Help me give my students new, sturdy music stands that are in good working condition, and that look presentable for public performances.
The students I serve belong to several urban elementary schools in the Manchester School District, as well as one high school. The elementary students are first-year band students learning to play an instrument for the first time, and the high school students are part of a 90-member marching/concert band. The Manchester School District is the largest and oldest public school system in New Hampshire. Students from these schools represent over 65 countries with 85 different languages spoken, and some students are experiencing the educational process for the first time.
The Manchester School District is a true example of diversity.
The performing arts are a great way to bring our diverse population together as a unified student body. The performing arts provide students with leadership opportunities, as well as the chance to display their talents, thereby promoting their success.
Music stands are an essential piece of equipment for learning in the instrumental music classroom. Students are responsible for bringing their instrument, music, and positive attitudes to band. The school and teachers are responsible for ensuring that students have the rest of the necessary equipment so that they may access the curriculum. A music stand is the equivalent of a desk in any other classroom. If there are no desks, how can the kids adequately view material, write, and learn? And if the desks are broken and damaged, how reliable will that process be? And what message does it send to students and parents that we are providing our students with inadequate equipment? Students deserve the best possible. That is why we are seeking to replace our old and damaged music stands with new, sturdy ones. Please help us take this important step in our mission to improve the quality of equipment in our department at CHS. Thank you for your support!
