Save Mrs. Camin’s Art Room

0 have signed. Let’s get to 500!

Mrs. Camin is a wonderful and valued art teacher at Owego Free Academy. She has taught students for 34 years and is well known to local artists for her amazing work. OFA administration has demanded that she move all of the school’s art supplies and projects out of her room and into the neighboring, much smaller room. There is not enough space to move everything and many cherished projects will have to be thrown out, and supplies will be wasted.
On top of that, they demand this halfway through the school year, and everything must be out by the end of the year. Students will no longer have a large, safe area to practice art or complete projects, and there will not be enough room for the extensive array of supplies both rooms have to offer.
Their reasoning for this sudden action is to “Move all subject rooms together”. This means they want to remove the second art room to move another math room in to have them all next to each other. Art programs have already been greatly cut down and budgets have been slashed which are the causes of such few art programs available currently.
With enough petitions, we can deliver this letter to the heads of administration in OFA and get them to back off and keep the second art room; and maybe even return the old art classes that were cut out.
Please, sign this petition today and we might just have a chance to save our art room and provide a comfortable, spacious art room for future students in OFA.
