Mary Thao started this petition to DC Everest

Hello, my name is Mary Thao. I recently graduated from DC Everest this year. Everest is well known for many things like football, basketball, etc. But, the music program has always stood out for all the wonderful things they’ve done like parades, musicals, concerts, etc. Music is what brings everyone together at games and events. The school has decided to offer virtual band, choir and orchestra this upcoming school year after school, (making these courses extracurricular as opposed to curricular). In place, they will offer a "World of Music" class to all students as the ONLY outlet to learn music during the school day, (last year, 620 of the 850 middle schoolers participated in a music course). 6th and 7th grade is essential for students to begin learning music, and taking it away from them will result in severely altering the quality of the DC Everest band, orchestra, and choir program for years to come. This is unfair and should not be taken away from our students and peers. Please help us get band, choir and orchestra back as a class during the school day at the DC Everest Middle School by signing this petition and spreading the word. Thank you.
