KEEP OUR BAND DIRECTOR, PLEASE

On the evening of May 11, 2018 our band director of 4 years was pink slipped. When I and my fellow band members heard this we were all in a major shock, we all immediately got together and tried to create reasons why she did. Reasons hoping that it was only for now, and that she'd be rehired before band camp starts again. However just a day later at our annual band picnic... Ms.Hipple delivered the news that she was fired, and that her contract will not be renewed. A wave of silence fell onto our band and none of us wanted to believe this was really happening. We just received new uniforms, distinguished on our KMEA assessments, and there was no sign of her doing her job poorly. So, before we lose her and possibly our band program in general a meeting has been called with the school board and our principals on Monday morning. All 100+ band kids will be grouped up in our band room to hear the final decision on our band program. We have this petition, and a petition going around school but we feel this isn't enough, if we can show them that even kids from outside our school district don't want her to leave, then maybe they won't fire her... 4 years is really much to short to fire someone, she plays a major role in all of our lives and can't bare the fact that she's getting fired. So please, take some time out of your day to sign... You could be refilling the happiness in hundreds of kids. Thank you.
