Now that 7-8th grade students are required to take band, Mrs. Consbruck was struggling to find enough instruments for all students to be able to participate. She decided to start a DonorsChoose page where she could ask the public for donations to purchase a saxophone.  DonorsChoose's mission is, "We make it easy for anyone to help a teacher in need, moving us closer to a nation where students in every community have the tools and experiences they need for a great education."

Within a short period of time, Mrs. Consbruck received notice that an anonymous donor from California decided to fund the saxophone. Almost immediately, Mrs. Consbruck sent up another plea on DonorsChoose for a clarinet. I am pleased to say that she has received the donations to purchase the clarinet! DonorsChoose has been a wonderful program to help teachers and students in need and anyone from anywhere in the world can choose to fund a project that speaks to them.
