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 year we are pleased to share that when students return to their classrooms in September:


  • ALL elementary students will benefit from NEW instruments in their music class
  • ALL 4th graders will receive their own “Recorder instrument”.
  • ALL secondary band, choir, and orchestra students will benefit from the online music platform SmartMusic. This software was the top requested item from music teachers and students in music!

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 we have provided digital keyboard labs in two of our high schools, purchased tubas for all the band programs, paid to repair instruments, AND purchased new instruments for both band and orchestra.   Our goal is to provide instrument choices for the students!
