Middle School Awards

Today was the Middle School Awards Assemblies. The 6th and 7th grades were together and then the 8th grade was by itself. We had gotten letters saying that both girls would be receiving awards. The 8th grade band, orchestra, and choir all performed as well, so we sat where we could see Sarah in the band, and Emily ended up sitting close to us (They had the students sitting together). One thing I noticed during the 8th grade awards, most of the awards were going to people already on stage from the band, orchestra, and choir!

Emily got the "Principal's Academic Achievement Award" for being one of the top 20 students in 6th grade:

Emily had dropped her certificate and this was her reaction

The 8th grade band played "Moscow 1941"

The 8th grade band and 8th grade orchestra played for the combined 6th, 7th, and 8th grade choirs "God Bless America":

Sarah got "Employability Skills Honor Roll" for getting only A's on her employability grades (being on time, turning in homework, etc)

 Sarah also got the "Principal's Academic Achievement Award" for being one of the  top 20 students in 8th grade:

Sarah also got the "Presidential Academic Achievement" Award for having a gpa of at least 3.5 and scoring in the "Advanced" section on the M-STEP tests. It had a letter from Betsy Devos and a certificate from President Trump.

The 8th grade band did a special song that the section leaders composed for their band director, Jeff Ayers, that they named "Ode to Ayers".
