Our school music concerts are among my most favorite events. I’m enchanted by the heart, the pride and the ‘we’re-all-in-this-together-as-parents’ feeling that overwhelms me in the audience…and the talent too. After homework is checked and lunch is packed, we parents have the pleasure of listening to our children perform just for us. Think of how hard our children have worked to get to this night, just to make us proud and make us smile.
Loads of research recently in the Wall Street Journal prove the academic benefits of having a robust music program like ours in the Burlingame School District. We BCE supporters are doing an exceptional job as parents by helping fund our children’s K-8 music education. No wonder our cheeks hurt from grinning so much in the audience.
It’s a wonderful time of year to make your donation to the Annual Campaign.
