White Cloud Jr. High Student
What we do is only possible because of you. We wish you a very happy holiday season and we thank you for keeping music alive for our children.
Below is a message from a student thanking The Mr. Holland's Opus Foundation for giving her the opportunity to learn how to play an instrument.
Dear Mr. Holland's Opus Foundation,
My name is Kyla Maring, from White Cloud 6th grade band. I haven't had an instrument in 2 months, and I went up to my teacher, and she handed me this amazing clarinet. I'm so happy that you are kind enough to donate an instrument to me. I was so excited to begin to learn the clarinet, but I wasn't able to have that chance without a clarinet. But I have to thank you so much for donating this clarinet to me.

I am so pleased with what my students have gained from having these instruments. The instruments are all in good shape and because we have so many instruments now I can take on more students than ever and even though 25 of my students moved up to middle school I still went from having 120 students to having over 150 now!
