Donor's Choose:  Mrs. Fortier

I want to make sure my students have the materials they need to succeed, so I just created a request for my classroom at

Let’s Throw Some Pots!

Help me give my students a pottery wheel and bead stand to provide new opportunities in ceramics!

Project Bass: Purchase an Upright Bass for Founders

My name is Jessica B., and I am a senior at Founders. Over my nearly five years at the school, I have been extensively involved with our music program. This year, my goal for my senior project is to enhance the music program for current and future students.

As the music department is growing, there is a need for improvement in different elements of the program. One element is the ability to have school instruments on hand for students who wish to try a new instrument but don’t necessarily have the money or space to own one. Some students have expressed an interest to learn the upright bass to play in the jazz band, string ensemble, and symphonic band.

With that being said, this year I am funding an upright bass with its accessories for the school. To accomplish this I have been selling candy bars on Fridays as well as having a booth at music events. I am excited to say that I have recently launched a donors choose project with one of my mentors, Ms. Cormier. Please consider donating to my project and I appreciate all of your support. Thank you!
