Hardin Valley Middle School Needs An Orchestra

0 have signed. Let’s get to 1,000!


This is a group for the parents of children who will be attending Hardin Valley Middle School and have a child who is interested in orchestra. Orchestra is offered at all the neighboring middle schools and our HVA orchestra is a leader in Knox County. Sadly, it has been announced that HVMS will NOT have an orchestra next year. There is an option for student's to attend at 7:30 AM but this will limit participation and possibly have a ripple effect on HVA's future participants.

Nearly everyone enjoys music, whether by listening to it, singing, or playing an instrument. But despite this almost universal interest, many schools are having to do away with their music education programs. This is a mistake, with schools losing not only an enjoyable subject, but a subject that can enrich students’ lives and education. Our students deserve to discover or continue to invest their efforts in orchestra during school hours.

Please sign this petition and help us communicate the need, desire, and importance of having an orchestra program offered during school hours at HVMS during the 2018-19 school year.
