Mrs. McCue from Wakonda SD is requesting Musical Instruments through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Using Our Ukes!

My students need ukulele hangers to keep our new ukuleles in great condition! They are loving the new ukuleles but our storage is just on a table, and is less than ideal.

My Students

Many of my students love music but don't have the means to take private lessons. We are in a rural town, and most students would need to drive over a half hour to a larger town or city if they wanted to take private music lessons. I do as much as I can to give them lots of great musical opportunities that they wouldn't otherwise have, such as going to the symphony, learning about different musicals, going to sing or play in regional choirs and bands, and even hosting special music assemblies where performers have come to play for the school.

I want students to have fun with what they are doing in my classroom, and then learning will take place even if they don't realize it!

We love instruments in our classroom. Orff xylophones and metallophones are a favorite, as well as tone chimes, recorders, and drums. Our new favorite is bucket drumming. The kids are super excited about our brand new UKULELES but I have nowhere to put them right now! Please help us out by purchasing a storage rack for our lovely new ukes.

My Project

My students have been learning ukuleles for the last three months and they love them. Every day they ask if we are playing ukuleles. However, we currently have nowhere to store them!

We need ukulele hangers in our classroom so we can keep our ukuleles in pristine condition and use them for years to come!

The current storage situation (laying on a table) is not ideal.

I hope you will consider donating to our project. Part of teaching is showing how to keep things nice and usable for years to come, so this would be very helpful in our classroom. Thanks!
