Friends of Watertown Music is awarding the Watertown Public Schools a grant of $6,800 to expand programming for the 2012-2013 school year. Because of an increase in state funding, the school department has been able to add a half-time music position. Our grant will expand that position to include Jazz Band at the Middle School in addition to broader offerings in the elementary instrument program, high school electives, and new curriculum and classes for special needs students.
Thank you to all whose gifts and advocacy helped make this a reality!
This year we continue to work toward our vision of rebuilding, expanding, and celebrating music in our public schools.
