Last night was Preston's last ever band concert! I think. Next year he is scheduled to take an art class instead of band. And after 4 years of band and being very artistic, I think that is just great. Anyhow, the Finale Concert was called "By Request" and was many songs that are popular in our culture, from Beatles Forever to Don't Stop Believin'. It was a great concert.
But wait, there is more. Voted on by his peers, Preston won the Most Inspirational award for 8th grade band! Way to go Preston!
Here is Preston with his certificate.
And up front with other award winners. The 7th graders are the ones in the white shirts. It was very fun when he won. I don't think he expected this award at all. In fact when the teacher said "he plays the clarinet", Preston and the boy next to him (the only boys who play clarinet in the 8th grade) did a little fist pump, because they each thought the other had won. Cool.
See you tomorrow.
