ARLINGTON — Students at Arlington Memorial Middle School/High School have kickstarted a campaign to raise funds for the school’s music arts programs.
The campaign on the online fundraising platform Kickstarter was launched earlier this week and is already a third of the way toward its goal.
The funds will be used to purchase additional workstations for a new music and media lab at Arlington Memorial. The media lab is intended to be a center for collaboration and interdisciplinary learning, where students can “engage in design thinking and create original multimedia work,” according to a written release from the Arlington School District.
“Students have been developing original podcasts and recording their own music, and it’s all been amazing to watch. However, we need more equipment to keep up with the students,” said music and media Teacher Phelan Gallagher, who spearheaded the campaign.
