I had the good fortune of seeing and hearing all of the grade 4-8 student musicians throughout the district this past week. For the first time, Grafton High School hosted all of the district Spring Concerts. The students were thrilled to perform in the state-of-the-art facility at GHS. The sound was wonderful and the lighting added just the right touch, giving each young performer the proper setting to showcase their talents. It was also a treat to see the wonderful music directors throughout the district each guiding their students and our program in a positive direction.
We now have approximately 400 students participating in our band program district-wide. I repeat, almost 400 students! It speaks to the tremendous responsibility of the high school program to be the leader in this continued growth. We must continue to inspire so others will aspire to bigger and better things.
Last week was a week that inspired me. Let's continue to be our best.
