All third graders have now received their recorders and recorders books! For over a decade, donations to the Santa Monica Education Foundation’s For The Arts Endowment have funded recorders and books for every third grader.
These recorders are the foundation of our schools’ nationally recognized music programs. Recorder lessons introduce students to music performance and encourage music appreciation. The outstanding bands, orchestras and choirs that are the pride of our district have their roots in these recorders.
Thanks to the donors who make third grade recorders possible for our students! If you would like to know how donations to the Ed Foundation further support our school, please visit smedfoundation.org.
