Maplewood Middle School’s music programs annually sponsor a jazz concert to benefit a local charity. Teachers Jeanne Jung, Stephanie Kellnauser & Mr. Kevin Nutini directed over 100 students of the school band, jazz band and chorus in the February 6th event with all proceeds going toward Habitat for the Bill Ott home build.
Hundreds of parents and school supporters attended the event. Throughout the program, students spoke about our work in the community and played videos from our website and Habitat International. The school also introduced members of the Bill Ott family and allowed them to speak about Bill.
Everything we do is done with the feeling that we are a family helping families achieve their dream of home ownership. The school is still collecting pledges and the kids at Maplewood truly feel they are part of our family and our work. Boards the kids signed will be incorporated in the build.
Bill Ott loved the Menasha schools. He would be proud of these kids.
