SCHOOL PARTNERSHIP FUNDING H+H is the recipient of major multiyear grants from the Ramsey McCluskey Family Foundation and the Linde Family Foundation. These grants will allow H+H to sustain and expand music education and choral programming in the Joseph E. Lee K–8 School in Dorchester and the John F. Kennedy Elementary School in Jamaica Plain for up to three additional years. Currently, H+H provides afterschool music programs for Lee School students and a choral program for its middle schoolers during the regular school day. At the Kennedy School, students in Kindergarten and Grade 1 receive weekly music instruction during the school day. The program will be expanded to all students in Grades 2 and 3 over the next two years.
