Mr. Carrera from Chicago IL is requesting Classroom Basics through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

My students need twelve 16" X 20" frames to help advertise our choir program.

My Students

I am writing this proposal for my high school students who participate in our music program. Our high school serves a large urban area and has a high percentage of students from low income homes. Our student body is culturally diverse and provides our school community an opportunity to experience languages and customs from many cultures as we interact every day.

Many of my students do not have the opportunity to explore and experience high quality music instruction outside of the school setting.

It is exciting to see them grow in their knowledge and excitement of music. Many of our students will continue their participation in the music program for 3 or 4 years during high school.

My Project

The goal of the project is to help students get excited for our performances. Another goal of this project is to bring awareness to other students in the school about the great choir program that we have. Some students in our school do not even know we have a choir program. The frames that we get from this project will help us achieve these goals.

This project is important because as choir students we work hard to be successful.

Showing other people what we do in the school lets our students and community know what we are doing in choir. I know that when parents and alumni come to visit, they will see the pictures and make them proud to be a part of our choir program. Some people that do not know about our choir program will get a chance to see the good work that we do.
