So, this isn't the cutest display I've ever done but it worked.  In past years I have printed out copies of a supply wish list and asked parents to donate items to the music room but it has never been all that successful.  I can imagine that with all of the papers parents are handed at the beginning of the year things get lost or forgotten.

To try and increase the donations, I made this poster and hung it outside of my door tonight for "Meet the Teacher".  I figure the music notes will be a better reminder than another piece of 8.5 x 11 paper.

I wish this was more colorful and had a treble clef but I ran out of time.  Although it's not perfect I did notice a lot of notes missing at the end of the night, so fingers crossed.  Hopefully those supplies will start rolling in!


  1. I like it! The teachers at my school always do baskets of apples. I am never in my room on meet the teacher night (the specials teachers help direct traffic), so I go around and put apples in the baskets of some of the homeroom teachers. Totally works! I am thinking this year they need to be music notes! :)

    1. To be honest that was what prompted this display. In past years I have always been in my room but this year our principal asked us to help direct parents and students to their classrooms. I was a bit sad about not being in my room but so many kids came and sought me out and that made me feel good!

  2. I love this! I think I'll ask permission to put it up in the lobby, though, since my music room is hidden away and never sees much traffic on back-to-school night!

  3. That's a great idea. I never thought to put something in the lobby for me or my team at whole school events.
