First, thank you for making it possible for all students to attend the annual choral festival. It was a memorable event, and the students performed exceptionally well! In case you have not heard, we earned 1st Place in our division (again) with an overall rating of Excellent. I suspect the judges’ perspectives were, “we cannot give them 1st place and a perfect score.” A score of 90 is superior; we got an 89 (UNREAL)! Seriously, in every category, we received an 8.5, 9, or 9.5; nevertheless, we won 1st place, and I am super proud of my babies! A special thanks also to my colleagues, Randy Lott and Jae Pratt, for assisting me on this trip.
