Help Madrona K-8’s Music Program Get A New Sound System

Madrona SchoolMadrona K-8’s new full-time music teacher, Stephan Childers, is working hard to bring the pieces together to build the foundation of Madrona’s music program. He has the most important element – enthusiastic students – but he needs your help to get the technology that will make their voices heard. Mr. Childers has started a fundraising campaign through DonorsChoose.org for a new speaker system that will bring a professional sound to their two upcoming holiday concerts and will last the school for many years.

An anonymous donor has already pledged half of the nearly $2,500 needed for the system, but that donation will only be fulfilled if the remainder is pledged in the next seven days. A similar fundraising effort for a wireless microphone for the school was completed in just 24 hours, so let’s keep the momentum going to get Madrona’s music students a great sound system!

Friday, June 6 is Madrona K-8’s “Drop Everything And Read” day, when students will get to carry their favorite book with them all day, and when the bell rings – drop everything and read for 10 minutes! As part of the event, the school is also collecting book donations, and they need your help to gather enough books to send each student home with five books for summer reading.

Check your bookshelves at home for kids’ and young adult books you would like to donate, and drop them off at the school’s main entrance between 9:00 a.m. and 4:00 p.m. from May 27 through June 3. Five books per student means they’ll need to gather 1,500 books, so everyone’s help is needed!
