Music Instrument Donations

Hello, community members,

As you likely hear in the news, CPS budgets are tight, and arts programs are oftentimes the first things cut. Im fighting hard with my teachers at Curie High School to prevent this from happening.

We're trying to build the music program at our school and provide for students that struggle to afford basic necessities let alone luxuries such as musical instruments. I'd love to know: do you or anyone you know have an old musical instrument...

Hello, community members,

As you likely hear in the news, CPS budgets are tight, and arts programs are oftentimes the first things cut. Im fighting hard with my teachers at Curie High School to prevent this from happening.

We're trying to build the music program at our school and provide for students that struggle to afford basic necessities let alone luxuries such as musical instruments. I'd love to know: do you or anyone you know have an old musical instrument you'd be willing to donate? In return, I'd gladly have my school write a letter on our school's letterhead, so that you may file it in your tax returns as a 'thanks' for your generous gift. I've actually chosen this option myself in the past, and have had the tax benefit end up being worth more than I'd get if I sold it! What a great added bonus!

Think of what this will do: our students want the opportunity to make music, and you can be the person to provide that. My CPS e-mail is cgraves3@cps.edu, in case you want to contact me directly.

Please share this request with friends and family as well, as we think of how we can each make an impact.

Thanks! Our wonderful students deserve the best!!

Four years ago, I posted a request for band instrument donations for Edwards Elementary in Archer Heights. Due to the wonderful kindness of many of you, they now have a thriving band program.

Now, I'm an Assistant Principal at Curie High School across the street, and am requesting your help again.

    again, one of my favorite "last resorts" is to call the media! get video, keep track of your calls to police, DCFS & others & get it on the news! See how fast it is taken care of!

  • Hearst Elementary School reviewed

    As you can see, the reviews are worse the farther back into time you go. When Hearst Elementary acquired their new principal Mrs. Chrobak, everything turned around. The building is much more lively, clean, and welcoming. She is a tough principal on both the staff and the students, but she respects everyone, and works to bring out the best in everyone. She was truly a blessing to the school, and it is now a school quickly on the rise! Although more community activity and support could help the school, everyone there is doing a good job nonetheless! The school's test sores have improved dramatically, and the children seem much happier to be in the school. I hope Mrs. Chrobak stays for much longer and helps the school even more!
