Mauriceville Middle School Band Hall received approximately 18 inches of water due to Hurricane Harvey. We lost all of our low woodwind instruments, percussion equipment, instrument bins and tuba racks. Our music stands rusted and corroded due to the moisture in the air and are no longer usable. 3/4 of our music library was covered in mold and could not be saved. We are literally starting from scratch and would deeply appreciated any assistance.

My students need help getting instruments for band class. Tanglewood Middle School (formerly named Grady Middle School) is a Title 1 school located in the Galleria area of Houston. Hurricane Harvey magnified the financial challenges that many of my students' families already faced. Many of my students' parents experienced a loss of wages as well as personal property loss. Tanglewood Middle School has a limited inventory of school owned instruments for students to borrow, but not enough for everyone with a need. The need for school owned instruments is far greater than what it has been in the past. We are in need of additional flutes, clarinets, trumpets, french horns, and trombones. Thank you for your consideration!

Our needs are vast. We lost our band hall and auditorium with much damage to many instruments, lots of percussion equipment, all student music materials, and uniform parts. Below is a lengthy list. I am including our 6th grade materials in this list because they travel to our campus for band, and the instruments are shared between all levels. A separate request is available for our 5th grade elementary needs. Due to the urgency of providing instruments for our students, our instruments have already been sent in for repair or replacement, so those issues will be incurring significant monetary needs.

I teach beginner band classes in Dickinson ISD. Many students in our program have lost their homes to flooding. Fortunately, almost all of our students kept their instruments up high or have found ways to purchase a used instrument inexpensively. However, I have just one student that is struggling to purchase a flute. His family has lost a lot from the storm and they just don't have the finances to purchase a flute on top of all expenses they have of rebuilding their home and lives.

Sullivan Middle School is a Title 1 school located in the Southeast (Pasadena) area of Houston. Our neighborhoods border the Vince Bayou and the hurricane magnified the financial challenges that many of my students' families already faced. Many of my students' parents experienced a loss of wages as well as personal property loss. Many of the families lost their only mode of transportation and money is very tight for them.

Sullivan Middle School has a limited inventory of school owned instruments for students to borrow, but not enough for everyone with a need.

We are an intermediate school in a Title 1 school district. Our program is in dire need of several instruments and accessories due to the impact of Hurricane Harvey. Several students are no longer able to rent an instrument from the local music store because of hardships they or their parents have faced at home. Because students are unable to afford renting an instrument, we have had to assign students to school-owned instruments and percussion. We have two and three students sharing our school-owned instruments, and unfortunately, our inventory is small for an intermediate school. Our most desperate needs are the following: MOUTHPIECES: for ALL brass instruments, especially trombone and tuba. ACCESSORIES: reeds for Bb clarinet (size 2 1/2 and 3), reeds for alto saxophone (size 2 1/2 and 3), EQUIPMENT: snare drum sticks for beginners (SD1 general). We could also use percussion bell kits (with practice pads). Thank you!

Equipment - We lost all of our storage spaces due to the flood waters from Hurricane Harvey. As such, we currently have no place to store supplies, accessories, music and student instruments. We could use storage options such as:

Sterilite Drawers and Towers for reeds/mouthpieces/oils/greases.
Sterilite Crates for student binder storage
Sterilite Shelving Units for music and instrument storage

Our classrooms are also now mobile, so we could use a rolling cart to storage classroom supplies and teacher materials such as:

Husky 27" 4 Drawer Tool Cabinet

Music - All of our UIL Sightreading music and much of our beginning band music was stored on shelves that were under the water line.

Know losses:
2006 - 2016 UIL Grade 1 Sightreading
2006 - 2016 UIL Grade 2 Sightreading
2006 - 2016 UIL Grade 3 Sightreading

Unknown losses:
Much of our grade 1/2 (first 6 notes/simple rhythm) beginning band music was thrown out before we could enter the building. The rest of our music library was stored in boxes. As such, as can not be exactly sure what survived. We are interested in all grade 1/2" pieces.

Instructional Materials - We lost a full classroom set (70) of 8.5" x 11" self-portrait mirrors used for student self-evaluation.

White Tuxedo Shirt
Black Tuxedo Pants
Black Bow-tie

Our community suffered great losses during the floods that followed the hurricane. Many houses have been condemned, while others will require complete rehab before families can move back in. As such, we anticipate that many families will be unable to provide their students will band supplies or instruments.

Instruments - We will be in need of quality used/refurbished/new flutes, clarinets, alto saxophones, trumpets and trombones. We could also use mouthpieces for horn, euphoniums and tubas. Bell kits and practice pads will also be needed.

School Supplies -
Every band student will need:

As a result of the flooding from Harvey, our nearly one year old band hall had 6 inches of standing water for over a week before we could get into the campus. Anything wooden, or cloth lined like our school owned instrument cases, was effected by airborne mold. Our wooden clarinets were destroyed by the mold. Some of the instruments attacked by the airborne mold were salvageable, but our two sets of marching tenors (quads) sat in water for days and were not. Many families in our community lost their homes, belongings and vehicles, leaving some of our beginning band parents unable to afford instruments for their children. The list below are items that we need desperately to supply our band students with necessary equipment and supplies to remain a part of our program.

Bass clarinet mouthpieces

We have a large number of students interested in band and over 75% currently play on a school provided instrument. We are in need of reeds, valve oil and slide oil so students can participate without the financial burden of this expense. Our instruments were saved from flooding however the humidity after the storm has ruined some cases.

Holland Middle School is an inner-city school just 7 miles from downtown Houston with over 170 in the band program. Our campus was damaged by the waters but luckily, the band hall, our equipment and most of the campus was spared extensive damage. Unfortunately, the community was hit hard. Funds are going to be especially tight this year and under the current circumstances, asking the community to help is not going to be an option. Some of our kids are sharing instruments because we are short. We could use the following additional instruments: 6 flutes, 5 clarinets and 5 trumpets.
We are hurting for supplies. Van Doren reeds: clarinet 3s (20 boxes) and 4s (20 boxes), alto saxophone 3s (10 boxes), tenor saxophone 3s (5 boxes), baritone saxophone 3s (5 boxes), Oboe reeds, 20 clarinet cotton swabs, cork grease, reed guards, (10) medium xylophone mallets, (10) bell mallets, valve oil, 1” binders.

We were Abel to save quite a bit of brass, it most of our woodwinds were unsalvageable. That being said, we are accepting donations of Bb Clarinets, Flutes, Saxes (whole family), and Bass Clarinets to replace our school stock. This is important as we've had many students move in to our district post-Harvey that came from schools that provided woodwinds.

Thank you for your love and support as we make an effort to rebuild our program.

Our students have instruments. Most of our students' instruments survived the floods. We were able to assist the rest of our students instrument concerns through gracious donations.
The issue is their supplies. Parents could afford these prior to Hurricane Harvey but now are unable to due to the devastation of their homes and vehicles and/or loss of employment. We are a Title One campus.

Park View Intermediate is a 7th/8th grade campus in a Title 1 district. We have 130 band students, including 3 performing bands and a beginner band class. Many of our students suffered damages to homes and property, and although we were lucky enough to not lose instruments, the extra financial burden to the families is difficult. Beginner band students who were planning to buy/rent instruments now find it difficult to set aside that money in their budget. We would truly appreciate help in providing the basic supplies and accessories below to get the year started for all our band students.

Accessories:
Clarinet Reeds - 4 boxes Vandoren strength 2 1/2
Clarinet Reeds - 8 boxes Vandoren strength 3
Saxophone Reeds - 5 boxes Vandoren strength 3
Valve Oil - 10 bottles
Trombone slide sprayer bottles - 6

Standard of Excellence, by Pearson (Book 1) for the following instruments:
- Flute (4)
- Clarinet (6)
- Saxophone (4)
- Trumpet (8)

We have a student whose trumpet was destroyed in the flood. While we have some instruments for students to use who are not financially capable of affording their own instrument, we have ran out of trumpets. He moved in two weeks after school started and all the trumpets we have available have been assigned.
