Jeff Klopmeyer Posted December 9, 2004 Share Posted December 9, 2004 I just got back from my very first holiday pageant in which my kid took part. It was terrific, but i wanted to report some good news. My boy is in Kindergarten at a public school here in the greater Los angeles area, and before the kids started doing their songs and dances, the principal got up to say that she considers music to be one of the most important programs at the school, and although their funding for music programs has been significantly reduced over the years, they've consistently managed to raise enough through private local organizations to keep music a high level priority for kids in our school district. Of course, that led to a plea to donate to said program on the way out, which I gladly did. I can't think of anything that's more important than our kids being given the opportunity to learn and appreciate music in a scholastic environment from the earliest ages. So, my boy took a solo bow at the end of each tune, by the way. He also asked me on the way home if we could go back so he could sing something into the microphone like the bigger kids.
