Keep Instrumental Music Alive In Vandalia!
WITHOUT YOUR HELP, OUR SCHOOLS COULD FALL SILENT
Recent budget cuts by the Vandalia High School Administration and School Board have reduced funding for your district's music program by $55,000. This means that one of our instrumental music instructor positions will be cut beginning in the fall of 2013. In addition, the entire 5th grade band program will be eliminated. With more budget cuts promised for the next fiscal year, itís important that we act now.
The loss of an instructor will lead to a decline in educational opportunities for our music students. It is imperative that our students begin their studies in the 5th grade and continue throughout their high school career. It is important that we act now so that students don't lose all the academic, cognitive, and social development benefits that come along with learning to play an instrument in a group.
With your help, we will be able to raise enough money to help keep the Instrumental music program alive for 5th grade students and continue to provide a quality educational experience for the Jr. High and High School
We are seeking donors for this worthy cause. Donations of all sizes are welcome. Will you be one of those people who help? Do you know someone who could be? Let us know!
