Hey there all you guitar players,

John Ousley (music teacher at West Campus), is looking for some help.  He wants to start a guitar unit in his music appreciation class and is looking for about 30 acoustic guitars. If you’ve got an old (or unused new!) one that will still hold a tune please consider donating it to West Campus. This is one of the sites where we have a BITS after school program. You can contact John at ousleyj@scusd.edu or give him a call,916-712-3051.  Thank you so much for helping keep music alive in our schools.
