And the award goes to...

Thank you to all 35 of our terrific pianists who did an amazing job at our 4th Annual Winter Recital last Saturday!

At the end of the recital we have a formal certificate presentation to our performers & 2 drawings for prizes! 

This year I have added a few for fun awards too!

So here are our winners:

"Practice Jar Winner" of a $25 gift card to Target = Miss Ainsley 

"Good Grades Jar Winner" of a $25 gift card to Best Buy = Mister Antonio

My dad counted 117 entries in our Practice Jar from 11/1 - 12/16.  He determined that those 117 entries equaled 1755 times a song was practiced!  And that does not even include the students who didn't meet the practice jar criteria!  WOW!

"The Technology Award" goes to the Parke Family for using Skype to share our recital with their family in Sweden!

My dad is the winner of the "Dedication to Renee's Music Award" goes to my dad  = 31 years later & he is still sitting through my recitals!  ;)

The "Furthest Distance Traveled Award" goes to Miss Kendall's Grandparents who came from Alabama to attend our recital for the 2nd year in a row!

The "Practice Dedication Award" goes to Miss Jaime W. for starting her recital songs first (over summer vacation).

The "Family Support Award" goes to Miss Elizabeth since her big brothers gave her a standing ovation when she finished performing "Believe" from The Polar Express.

The "Worker Bee Family Award" goes to Miss Emily & Miss Abigail's Family!  Once again they helped by unlocking & locking the church for us, turning on all the lights, being the sound crew, setting up, cleaning up & working in the kitchen!  They spent their whole day working!

Thank you to all of you who helped, volunteered & donated items to make the day a huge success!  Thank you to all of the performers for doing your best & working hard all year for this performance!  Thank you to all of the parents, grandparents & childcare providers who get their students to lessons, and encourage them to practice!  Without all of you, our recital would not have been possible!
