STRING BASS FUNDING REQUEST REACHED  
BY THE HERCULES HIGH SCHOOL ORCHESTRA

Hercules High School Music Director Arleen Wong created a DonorsChoose.org classroom request - String Bass Needed.  She recently received word that the amount remaining for the cost of the instrument was met with the help of DonorsChoose.org and the Hercules Education Foundation.  Great news!


DECENT SOUND FOR OUR MUSIC CONCERTS!

Hercules High School Music Director Arleen Wong created a DonorsChoose.org classroom request - Decent Sound for Our Music Concerts!.  Please take a look at the posting on that site and donate and encourage your family, friends, neighbors, and co-workers to consider donating to this worthy cause.  A sound system will make all the difference in the world to both those who perform and those who attend the concerts.
