Mrs. Donatacci is proud to have a daughter who is a senior at IHA. "My greatest joy has been working with students to make music a fun and rewarding part of their school experience and help them let their talents (sometimes hidden) shine!" she said. "I hope to grow and expand IHA’s music program into one that all our students want to be a part of and have a place. IHA strives to be the best in all that it sets out to accomplish; with the support of the students, teachers, and administration, I am excited to contribute to making our music and arts program a part of that excellence in all we set out to do! Personally, I am already excited to see the smiles on the girls' faces when their voices come together to fill the school with music."
