Save the band program at Chief Manuelito Middle School

The band program in our community has a longstanding tradition of excellence. Please help us to maintain that tradition by keeping the band program alive and Chief Manuelito Middle School. CMMS has the largest middle school band program in the district. With the loss of this program, students at Chief will not be able to enter an instrumental music program until their 9th grade year at best. Can you imagine starting to do math, reading or science as a 9th grader? A program cannot survive without a thriving feeder, which currently exists at CMMS. CMMS families have invested in musical instruments and students have dedicated their time and efforts to developing their musical skills. We believe that these young people and all students in Gallup McKinley County deserve access to quality music education in their schools. Band is the only music class offered at Chief Manuelito. If this program goes, hundreds of students will lose access to music education this year.
