This year is the first time in over twenty years that Oceana High School has been able to offer a music class. Mr. Robledo launched the Chorus class with hopes of bringing music back to our school. As exciting as it sounds, it is not that easy to run a music program. The band room that is used by both the Chorus class and Music club has long been uninhabited because the last time that we had a music class in this school was in the 1980s. Mr. Robledo and his students (current and future) need assistance in paying for instruments and other music equipment as well. Our school district, the Jefferson Union High School district, is the least funded public high school district on the San Francisco Peninsula. This is why they need your support.
The new Chorus class has worked tremendously hard for the school community. They prerofmeed at the first Oceana High School fundraising dinner celebrating the 50 years of our school. However, the output of their wonderful performances is not enough to pay for all the things needed.
Mr. Robledo designed awesome shirts and sweaters that you can purchase to help support the music program. He understands that times are difficult, but wishes that people can lend any type of benevolence so that the Chorus class and Music club will be able to continue on and bring great music to our school. If you are interested in purchasing a shirt/sweater or you want more details you can check them out here. The presale price for the shirts is $14, while the sweaters are $25. The regular price for the shirts is $18, while the sweaters are $30. These shirts are not just for people that attend Oceana which is why Mr. Robledo has created a way that you can purchase them online. The website to purchase them will be up soon. On behalf of Mr. Robledo and the chorus class, Thank you!
