LEGISLATIVE RESOLUTION commending the South Colonie Central School
District upon the occasion of its designation as a 2013 Best Community
for Music Education by the NAMM Foundation

WHEREAS, It is the sense of this Legislative Body to commend those
musical programs within our schools which distinguish themselves through
their ability to inspire students to achieve excellence in musical
performance; and
WHEREAS, Attendant to such concern, and in full accord with its long-
standing traditions, this Legislative Body is justly proud to commend
the South Colonie Central School District upon the occasion of its
designation as a 2013 Best Community for Music Education by the NAMM
Foundation; and
WHEREAS, The NAMM Foundation seeks to advance active participation in
music-making across the lifespan by supporting scientific research,
philanthropic giving and public service programs from the international
music products industry; and
WHEREAS, The Best Community for Music Education designation recognizes
collaborative, from-the-ground-up efforts of teachers, administrators,
students, and parents who continually work to keep comprehensive music
education as an integral part of the core curriculum; and
WHEREAS, The South Colonie Central School District has earned this
esteemed honor in recognition of its outstanding commitment to actively
promoting and nurturing a broad music program for all of its students;
and
WHEREAS, The South Colonie Central School District employs 20 music
teachers, and is supportive of the efforts of those dedicated educators
to develop and enhance the individual talents of their students; and
WHEREAS, The South Colonie Central School District enjoys significant
student participation in its music programs; more than 80% of its middle
school students have some involvement in music, and more than 1,500
students play in band, orchestra, or chorus; and
WHEREAS, Each young musician in the South Colonie Central School
District is deserving of recognition and acclaim for demonstrating
remarkable commitment to perfecting their musical abilities; and
WHEREAS, Learning how to play an instrument can boost student achieve-
ment and thereby contribute to the goal shared by parents, educators and
communities throughout this great State and Nation, academic success for
all students; and
WHEREAS, Music study is most worthy of being encouraged and promoted;
by providing students avenues for self-expression, tools for mastery,
and opportunities to exhibit their skills to an audience, they attain
self-esteem to last a lifetime; now, therefore, be it
RESOLVED, That this Legislative Body pause in its deliberations to
commend the South Colonie Central School District upon the occasion of
its designation as a 2013 Best Community for Music Education by the NAMM
Foundation; and be it further
RESOLVED, That a copy of this Resolution, suitably engrossed, be tran-
smitted to the South Colonie Central School District.
