We are aiming for 100% Family Participation!

Dear Strings Families,

We all know how fortunate we are to have the Strings Program at Palm Beach Public Elementary School, but did you know:

  • The funds for the instruments are provided by private donations, not from the Palm Beach County School District.

  • Mr. Matzkow donates his time before and after school every school day to teach our children.

  • The Strings Program is the most requested elementary school choice program in the District.

  • A team of volunteers assist Mr. Matzkow in the classroom.

  • With more funds, additional instructors could be hired to offer small group instruction to the students.

  • Donations are tax deductable and 100% of the funds goes directly into the program to buy instruments, supplies, and hire additional instructors.

  • Strings students receive an instrument and over 100 hours of instruction over the course of the school year, at no charge.

  • So far, this school year, we only have 25% family participation.

Please donate this year to help us reach our goal!

Donations should be mailed to the PBPS Strings Foundation at PO Box 2825 Palm Beach, FL 33480.
