Crittenden musicians enjoy new instruments
Students at Crittenden Middle School in Mountain View received a surprise from an unexpected source during their Thursday music assembly.
Fidelity Investments’ new Mountain View Investor Center, located at 2580 W. El Camino Real, donated $21,000 in new instruments to the school’s music program. The contribution supports Fidelity’s ongoing efforts to promote arts education in public schools.
Following a performance by the Crittenden orchestra and jazz band, a group from Fidelity presented the new instruments, including a baritone saxophone, a double French horn, two tenor saxophones, two violas, two cellos and five flutes.
The Mr. Holland’s Opus Foundation facilitated the donation.

The Mountain View Police Activities League seeks high school volunteers to help run the NetGain Tennis Program for at-risk middle-schoolers.
Volunteers are needed to serve as mentors and coaches twice a week from late October through mid-December. The Police Activities League and the city of Mountain View Recreation Division run the after-school program.
