Music & Arts
Helping Students Create!
We are deeply committed to Music and Arts in Renton Schools.
Every March, during “National Music in our Schools Month”, we target and raise funds for specific music needs shared by Renton School District Music Teachers. We call our fundraiser March is Music Month. This we raised fund for:
- SMARTMUSIC – A digital music subscription that was supposed to be a one-time purchase for virtual learning AND everyone has fallen in love with it. The subscription cost is: $26,000 or approximately $15.00 per student. This software platform benefits every secondary music teacher, band, orchestra and choir student.
- RECORDER INSTRUMENTS for all elementary 4th grade students. This request came from elementary school music teachers asking to provide equity for all and it eliminates the music teachers having to clean the recorders in-between class. The cost for the recorders is $7,000 or 4.66 per student.
Thanks to these many generous donors we raised $11,270.
Over the years during March is Music Month, we have raised funds for:
- Sheet Music
- Tubano Drums
- Rhythm Sticks
- Band and Orchestra supplies and so much more
With additional funds have purchased digital keyboard labs in two of our high schools, purchased tubas for all the band programs, paid to repair instruments, AND purchased new instruments. Our goal is to provide instrument choices for the students!
