DONORS CHOOSE - DR. BARNETT HAS CREATED A NEW FUNDING PROJECT FOR HER STUDENTS!


My Students
The students at our school are some of the most hard working, engaged, and creative students in the DC Public Schools. Their ability to manage rigorous curriculum and explore and expand their own creativity is truly remarkable. In addition, many of our students think outside of the box in regards to their future jobs and opportunities while understanding that their music education will only serve to enrich and enhance their lives. Students also use the music program as an expressive outlet.

My Project
Since we've been back to school in-person, we've had an overwhelming interest in our middle school string orchestra. I love the enthusiasm of our students and never want to turn anyone away. Currently, we have five students without instruments to use in our sixth grade orchestra. They look so sad without an instrument to play. Because of our history of having supporters who care about music learning and our students at CHEC, it is rare our students go without for long. Being an educational campus and maintaining relationships with our students for seven years, I know that with this donation, we can offer students the opportunity to learn and study throughout middle school, high school, and hopefully, for the rest of their lives.

The DonorsChoose team
P.S. Check out your school page at DonorsChoose to see all the teachers posting projects from your school. You can trade tips and tricks with colleagues to get your projects funded.
