4th Grade Music Field Trip

A Donors Choose project was started in an effort to raise the money we need to bus ALL the 4th grade students in the entire district to Central High School for a concert performance on April 11th. This is the culminating event to the "Picture This" program with Symphony NH. This project will benefit all 1,072 4th graders in the entire Manchester School District!

Please consider supporting music education in our schools by making a donation today. For the next 7 days, when someone donates to this project and enters the code EMPOWER, DonorsChoose.org will match their donation dollar for dollar. Feel free to share so that our 4th grade students can experience the joy of hearing live music from a professional orchestra. Click the link below to donate.
