Save our Sunday Performances!
This petition made change with 653 supporters!
A petition was brought before the Anoka-Hennepin School Board on Dec. 9, 2013 to take away Sunday theater performances throughout the school district. The individual presenting said that Sundays should be a day for worship and family and that Sunday theater performances take away from that.
We, the Anoka Middle School for the Arts Theater Booster Club, are counter petitioning for these reasons:
1. Sunday shows are scheduled after church services are finished for the day.
2. No student is forced to skip worship service in order to participate.
3. There are many religions within the district that worship on different days of the week. No one religion should be especially catered to.
4. The elderly of our community appreciate the daytime Sunday shows as they feel safer than being out at night.
5. No one has a right to tell another family how they can spend their family time. Many families choose to attend a theater production or participate in one as their quality family time.
6. Historically Sunday shows are our biggest attended shows. Other schools that have Saturday shows inform us they are not well attended.
Please sign our counter-petition and show your support for our theater program, our kids and our families.
