LEWISBORO, N.Y. – Parents of children in the Katonah-Lewisboro school district are fighting proposed cuts to the fourth- and fifth-grade music program.
Members of ArtsAlive! have submitted a petition fighting the reduction in elementary music education staff.
Jack Freudenheim, president of ArtsAlive!, states in the petition that the reasoning that fourth- and fifth-graders who are in band or orchestra receive a second session of music instruction and only need one session of general music class is wrong.
The petition is asking the Board of Education to reconsider the cuts.
