Carroll Middle School’s band is in the middle of an exciting contest–get enough votes, and they win a free tuba!┬áStudents made a video, posted it on Facebook, and are trying to get as many likes as possible. The band with the most likes wins the tuba! Support for the band has strengthened school spirit and community throughout Carroll. The project has shown students the power of technology to help connect them with others and support a cause.

“It’s school spirit, but it’s more than that.” –Band Director Brooke Rackley

Produced by Ian McClerin, Storyteller at Carroll Middle School and PreEminent Charter School
