March is Music In Our Schools Month (MIOSM)!
Here's a snippet from the National Association for Music Education website:
"March has been officially designed by the National Association for Music Education (NAfME) for the observance of Music In Our Schools Month (MIOSM), the time of year when music education becomes the focus of schools across the nation. MIOSM began as a single statewide celebration in 1873, and has grown over the decades to encompass a day, then a week, and then in 1985 to become a month long celevration of school music. The purpose of MIOSM is to raise awareness of the importance of music education for all children - and to remind citizens that school is where all children should have access to music."
