Firelands receives designation as 2017 Best 

Community for Music Education

It is my distinct pleasure to announce that as of March 20th, 2017 the organization called NAMM (National Association of Music Merchandisers) and The Institute for Educational Research has announced that the Firelands Local School district is one of 527 school districts across the country to receive the distinction as one of the Best Communities for Music Education. This is the 15th year that NAMM has recognized school districts for their commitment to music education and this is the third time Firelands has been recognized for its efforts to support the arts and more specifically music education.

Thank you to everyone who has attended our concerts, encouraged our students, helped with our fundraisers, or just supported our programs over the years. This is truly a distinction for the community and school district as a whole thank you for your continued support of music in our school!
