Our students are inspirational, passionate, responsible, and hard-working. Many of the music students who are in middle school attend their music elective during zero period. This period begins before the regular school day, so students elect to attend seven periods a day in lieu of the traditional six periods. This class is voluntary and year after year our enrollment for zero period increases as students are motivated to continue their music education. Many of our students have been enrolled in the instrumental music program since the third grade. They elect not only to stay at our school through middle school but they also continue to participate in the instrumental music program.
Many of our students come from low income families, are foster youth students, or share a household with extended family in order to remain in the district.
While staying enrolled in the district, families are able to keep their children at our school from elementary through middle school. Due to continuous enrollment, older siblings inspire their brothers, sisters and/or cousins to participate in music. Our school provides these opportunities for students to ensure exposure to the fine arts.
When our students enter their instrumental music classroom they are excited by the amount of instruments and selections they have to choose from. In order to continue this excitement our room requires proper storage for all the new violin inventory our awesome district has been able to provide to all of our Elementary schools.
Our school currently has over one hundred violins and is still growing.
Our classroom does not have closets or extra storage so a new violin rack would truly benefit all students from 3rd grade all the way to 8th grade. This new rack is a must.
