My name is Roxanne Duboucheron and I teach music at Washington STEAM Magnet Academy. Our school is starting a string orchestra this coming school year. It will be the first string orchestra at our middle school in over 20 years! Our school is 90% low socio-economic and 82% free or reduced lunch.
Although I have been funded for the position, our school does not own violins; we have one cello and a broken bass in our inventory!! I am really good at hunting down great deals, but we'll need seed money to buy instruments. Please fund our efforts so that our middle school students can have this incredible performing arts opportunity.
