    Cutting the funding for music programs is irresponsible. These kids have found a contructive and worth while social outlet, taking it away from them forces them to find other activities to do in thier spare time, ones which may not be beneficial to themse

    These programs were very important to my son when he attended GCHS. These programs helped him develop leadership skills that he uses at his job now.
