May I brag a bit? I knew my kids were "Superior", but now I have proof! Thursday at the Jazz competition their band received a "Superior" rating, and today at Solo and Ensemble they each received a "Superior" rating! Yay! Lots of hard work went into practicing and preparing.

For those that don't know, Winona is 12 ("until April") and blind from ROP. Daniel is 13 and sighted. Both are in the middle school Jazz and Symphonic bands.

More good news, I was chatting with the high school band director where the kids will go starting in 9th grade. While teaching in NY he had a blind student, so he's "been there, done that." He also is good friends with the current band director, so they'll work together for a smooth transition. Yay!
