Thumbs up Well...check It Out

Yesterday was my little brothers band concert, and well I had to be there. It was actually pretty cool, they played some really good music for being 7th graders. Well something that happened at the concert really made me proud.

During an intermission at the concert, there was an organization giving out awards to the TOP two students (male & female) in each grade. This middle school is one of those schools that have pretty good teachers who are involved with the student's, and give them a great education regardless where they come from. Unlike other school's that I've been to..if you're a minority they tend to put you to the side. It's not like that at this school and that's what really impresses me.

Well anyways moving on to the point..as they were announcing the students, I quickly realized that all of them..I mean ALL OF THEM..6th-8th grade, that they were all Mexican. This made me really proud! This really goes to show that WE are really getting involved in getting our kids an education and actually showing them what else is out there for them in life. That their dreams can truly become a reality....When I saw everyone of them go up there I had the biggest smile on my face. It made me so proud to see that our RAZA is progressing.

And then at the end of the concert, the band director gave out a $1,000 scholarship for private lessons (which are pretty expensive) to a student...and guess who got that scholarship...yes a MEXICAN!!!

Just thought I'd share a proud moment with you guys on here.

I really did. It's really amazing to see how our RAZA is really coming up in today's world...time's are getting tough and the kids need to realize the importance of an education.
