 Our annual CISD 6th grade Solo & Ensemble contest/festival  was Saturday--April 8th-- and what a GREAT SUCCESS it was.....We had our best year ever!!  Out of 16 entries that performed, 14 of the entries earned a SUPERIOR RATING  (a 1) and a Medal !!  Two of my entries earn the rating of EXCELLENT (2) and will be getting a nice certificate from me very soon. CONGRATULATIONS to ALL my 6th graders who performed.  I also want to thank several of my 6th grade Orchestra members who stayed after school on Friday to help get the rooms ready, and put up signs. For those 6th graders that brought in food, drinks, or snacks for the Judges and other Directors, Thank you as well. Our contest/festival would not have been successful without the great help from those that helped on Friday, or most of the day on Saturday.   THANK YOU again!!
