Music education is so important in the education of our children and our USD383 school board is considering cutting elementary band & orchestra.  The administrators claim students would only lose 80 instructional minutes a week & could make this up in middle school. They are not considering the 9,600+ minutes a year of lost practice time that makes foundational changes in young minds. This time can not be made up. Music helps with learning of math, reading, concentration, focus, social skills, motor planning, speech, creativity, problem solving, tenacity, & team work considered necessary in education. In addition it creates a sense of community and makes school somewhere kids want to be.  Show your support for continuing our high quality elementary school music education in Manhattan, KS by signing this petition today.
