Scott's new song is available!

Well, some generous soul at Emma Email Marketing donated enough to put us over the top, so thanks, Emma! You know what that means? The song is available and you can download it right this instant.
"Cara Lee" by Scott Miller - MP3

The teacher sent us a kind letter of thanks:
It is not that often that I would say that I can not wait for September to roll around, especially since our summer vacation has just started; but there is always a first time.

I can’t wait to explain to my students, this August, about how generous strangers have been by donating to pay for this proposal. Since I started teaching over eight years ago I have seen students' frustration when they returned to work on a project only to discover that either the computer was not working, waiting to be repaired, or their work had been accidentally deleted. It is really important that children are comfortable while they use computers as this exposes them to all the advantages that technology has to offer. Allowing the students the ability to save their own work on the various school computers will be a powerful tool for these children. The flash drives are one simple tool that will be used for years to come, to benefit my students as they work on various projects. There is a special “Thank you” that I must acknowledge to Scott Miller & The Loud Family Band, who will make his new song available free as a download, since this proposal is now funded. Well, I can’t wait to hear this song, and tell my students about how generous everyone has been to make my classroom a better educational environment for all students.

Thank you for thinking about my classroom & funding this proposal. THANK YOU.
You're welcome, and thanks for being a teacher -- it's a tough job, made even tougher by today's meager budgets.
