LEGISLATIVE  RESOLUTION  commending  the  Manhasset  Union  Free  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 Manhasset Union Free School District upon the occasion of its desig-
nation  as a 2013 Best Community for Music Education by the NAMM Founda-
tion; 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,  Each  young  musician  in  the  Manhasset  Union Free School
District is additionally deserving of recognition and acclaim for demon-
strating remarkable commitment to perfecting  their  musical  abilities;
and
  WHEREAS, Learning how to play an instrument can boost student achieve-
ment;  thus, instruction in music is a positive contribution 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 Manhasset Union Free 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 Manhasset Union Free School District.
