Help the Stroudsburg Middle School Music Program
Stroudsburg School District is proud of its Music Program. Currently the beginning 4th grade strings program and the beginning 5th grade band program have the same amount of students. The strings program has one dedicated teacher. The band program has a full time teacher who also is responsible for the 7th grade band and general music classes. In past years, the 5th grade band teacher had lesson groups of a maximum 8 students allowing for quality instruction. The lesson groups are now reaching up to 20 students! The school board recently posted a job opening for a 5th grade band lessons assistant teacher. The posting was removed without explanation. Please sign this petition asking the board to reconsider the lack of staffing at the beginner level of our music program.
