RHEF Provides Funds for New Musical Instruments

The foundation has approved a mini-grant of $1,100 for the purchase of new musical instruments for elementary school students whose families cannot afford rental costs.

The educational advantages of learning to play a musical instrument at an early age — developing creativity and an appreciation of the arts — are well-known. Because these purchases will be high-quality instruments, their value to the district will continue through the years, ultimately saving money when compared to damaged or inferior quality instruments.
