Oakview Receives Grant for Ukuleles
Oakview received of a $500 grant from Fellowship Greenville Church on Highway 418! Recently, the church set a fundraising goal to help area elementary school music programs. Along with matching grant funds, the money was used to purchase a class set of ukuleles! Ukuleles provide a fun and accessible opportunity for students to play and experiment with a well-loved musical instrument. We need your help! If you have carpentry skills and can assist Mrs. Nash (Music Teacher) in constructing a storage cart for the ukuleles, please email her at email@example.com. Let the strumming begin!
