I am in need of HAND SANITIZER and TISSUES for my classroom!!

If you could donate any hand sanitizer or tissues to the music room, I would appreciate it!
WISH LIST: Here is a list of things I could use for the music room. If you are able to donate any of these items, that would be wonderful!! Please feel free to drop these by the music room at any time. Thanks!

Below are the goals I have for all of my students in the music classroom:
Here is what I want all 5th grade students to have when they leave 5th grade
1. Basic working knowledge of the language of music.
2. Appreciate the value of music in multiple facets of everyday life.
3. Express yourself creatively in a music environment.
Subcategories that fit under my umbrellas
1b. Melody (direction, pitch)
2a. Cultural differences
2b. Music in every day life (commercials, soundtracks, radio)
2c. Styles of music
2d. Purposes of music
2e. Composers / great works
3b. Playing various instruments
3c. Responding to music (either musically, through dance, written theory, drama, or through art)
3d. Compose or improvise musically
What I want to report to parents:
I will give a narrative of opportunities that I will provide to students every 9 weeks that will explain what I did to help them achieve the goals listed as above.
EXPLANATION OF ASSESSMENT:
4 - Excellent (Distinguished)
The student is right on track with academic standards. A 4 should be celebrated!
3 - Good (Proficient)
The student is making progress toward the standard. There are still parts they are learning and may not yet independently meet grade level expectations.
2 - Needs Improvement (Apprentice)
The student needs continual support to meet the standard.
1 - Unacceptable (Novice)
The student is consistently performing below expected grade level standards.
