The Redwood City Education Foundation is fighting hard to prevent this one and more cuts but raising funds before June when the School District needs to finalize its budget. If we manage to raise enough by then we can save instrumental music. Donate, volunteer, organize, spread the word, and read all about it in RCEF's Save the Music page.
And here are additional action items, from an email sent by Georgia Jack, one of the organizers of RCEF's Save the Music efforts:
Donate to help us reach our minimum goal of $100,000 to maintain 5th through 8th grade instrumental music programs for all of our students in all 17 elementary and middle schools.
Participate in the Groovin' in the Grove (GIG) concert event on May 29, 2010, being held at Sequoia Unioin High School's Carrington Hall and Grove area AND the 4th of July Fun Run taking place in downtown Redwood City before the parade.
