This Fall, we’re introducing 16 children, grades 3 to 5, to the Ukulele at Worcester’s Elm Park Community School.
We extend thanks to School donors and grantors whose support is making it possible for us to invest in this program. Grants are currently pending in hopes of continued and expanded partner-based outreach programming in 2022.
Elm Park Principal Lucas Donahue, music teacher Danielle Maldonado, and Jeanne Gohary, School Administrative Assistant, have all been instrumental in helping get the program started.
Guitar /Ukulele teacher Michael Stubblefield is at Elm Park on Thursdays for 1 1/2 hours.  Kristjon Imperio, Director of Programs and Community Engagement, is spearheading the project.
What is this unusual space where the students are meeting?  It is Elm Park’s Hogwart’s School library!  Featuring all things ‘Harry Potter’.   Elm School librarian has created an engaging, calm space that includes pleasant aromas, things to touch, and lots of things to read.
