instrumentsAs a designated "Best Communities in Music Education" school district, we are proud of our music programs. In order to give more students an opportunity to participate in music, we provide some of them with instruments. This past year, more than 32% of the students in elementary band and orchestra used school-owned instruments.

In order to provide access to musical instruments, we rely on instrument donations. If you have an instrument you are no longer using, please consider donating it to the district for student use. Instruments are accepted in “as is” condition and can be dropped off at any district elementary or secondary school or at the ESC.
