Reason to Giive recently adopted the Lafayette Elementary school Orchestra as one of our reasons to give! We spent an entire afternoon with the young musicians listening to them practice and interviewing them about the impact the Merit Music program has had on their lives. The students were so enthused to participate in our program and share their talents with us that we thought it only right that they get the first screening of the video.Principal Shrode and Mr. Weible gathered all the students into the auditorium after school for a special viewing of themselves on the big screen! The students' reactions were priceless! We just had to share them with all of you.

Watch the students watch themselves!

And if you haven't checked out their story yet - now is the time!
