Great Minds Grant
The Davenport Schools Foundation recently awarded a Great Minds Grant to the Wood Intermediate Bands. The 6th grade band had the opportunity to work with guest director Kathleen McMillen on February 11th. Ms McMillen spent time rehearsing music for the students’ upcoming concert. She concentrated on the areas of dynamic contrast and listening for correct balance when playing in a group. The 7th-8th grade band benefitted from working with guest director Brad Williamson. Great Minds programs are made possible by donations received from individuals and organizations as well as from the sale of Major Saver cards. Thank you for your support and for helping make a difference in the lives of children throughout the Davenport Community School District.
