Saving Music in Brainerd Schools

Music Matters is a group of Brainerd School parents who want to raise enough money to pay the salaries of the high school band and choir directors. Both men have been given notice their positions will be cut by the end of the school year. Spokesperson Jennifer Pelowski said the group believes they can raise the $100,000. Pelowski said it will be a one-year effort because there are two other teachers in the school music system who will probably retire next year. As long as there are no more cuts in the music department, Pelowski said all should be well. If you'd like to help Music Matters, write a check to the Brainerd Public Schools Foundation and write the words 'Music Matters' in the memo line. Send the check to Music Matters, P.O. Box 234, Brainerd, 56401. Pelowski said she'd like to raise the money by April 15th to give the two music instructors enough time to make plans.
