About this Campaign
McPhee Music Department polo shirts that will help our students more fully experience and feel a part of the McPhee Elementary Music Department. These shirts would be used not only for concerts and other music department events, but give them a feeling of belonging and a sense of community. Many of our students have commented in the past that they do not own dress clothes to wear to concerts, we hope to get the students polo shirts so that they will have something to wear that is more dress up for occasions.
- Provide students with a greater feeling of ownership and pride.
- Give students an increased sense of belonging.
- Provide students the opportunity to express their musical interests to the rest of the school in a professional, positive way.
- To be able to help foster a feeling of ownership and belonging.
- Teachers will be able to engage students in new and more innovative ways because they will have an inherent sense of community to build upon instead of having to work so hard to build that sense of community.
- We plan on having about 100 students between our Band, Orchestra and Choir programs this year. By both younger students and students in the groups being able to see the how many students participate in music it will help grow the program and improve the quality of the groups.
- With a greater sense of belonging and ownership students will learn to value and appreciate the arts which will enhance not only the school community, but the community at large with more sensitive and insightful students.
There are many benefits to creating a sense of community and belonging. By getting Polo shirts we hope that it will help to enhance what the teachers currently do in their classrooms and allow them to build off of that enhanced community to direct the students in more advanced learning objectives and greater community awareness.
