It's Annie's Senior year of high school. There will be so many activities and special events that come with the end of high school. Prom, sports awards, Senior night, academic awards night, concerts, Senior recital... culminating in graduation in June.
On Monday night we attended the first of these events along with @1300 other students, families, and teachers at the Aqua Turf. Annie was honored to receive the Connecticut Association of School Outstanding Arts award in recognition of excellence achieved in the performing or visual arts. Two seniors from each town were recognize. Annie was recognized for music and Annie's friend Josh was recognized for acting.
After listening to a few speakers, we were treated to a fabulous dinner, a jazz performance, and the presentation of the awards.
Music teachers, Mr. Delassus and Mr. Diamond along with our Principal Mr. Rinaldi joined us for the evening as well.
We are very proud of Annie's musical accomplishments!
As were Josh's parents!
It's hard to believe, though, that all of these school activities that have been the focus of our lives for so many years will all be coming to an end in just 2 months! We will be moving on to a new and different time of our lives which I'm sure will be wonderful.
But until then we will savor and celebrate this very special ending.
