The high school music department had a fun awards banquet BBQ luncheon at a park here in Mountain View instead of having a big boring assembly at the school. I kind of loved this idea. All the kids got to get together & eat & chat & just have fun. It was a great atmosphere, the kids enjoyed it, the food was great, & the musicians still got to be recognized for their hard work during the school year.
We were totally surprised when they announced Cadence's name as Outstanding Musician for Symphonic Band. She was pretty excited since it was a student voted award. She's worked very hard this year & we are very proud of her.
