I wish that there was a way for me to articulate in words, the exhilaration that flooded my heart on April 29, 2016, as, I recognized each parent honoree and community volunteer for their service to our schools and communities. It took me about one week to digest the appreciation that parent honorees and community volunteers expressed to me, during and after the “MAKING MUSIC TOGETHER” event was over.
Several parents’ eyes lit up like christmas trees as they marched across the stage to receive their certificates that were presented by ALLPARENTSONDECK, to each parent honoree from the Madison, Milwaukee, Sun Prairie and Verona School Districts.
My heart probably skipped several beats in unison with them as each parent, stood at the center of the stage with me and then at the other end for their personal photograph. We had a wonderful photographer – Romulo Morishita – Ueda Photography, onsite to capture each moment for parents. The photos are available via his website www.uedaphotography.com.
We look forward to next year in April, when we will present a similar type of award ceremony to more parents. Each school district will receive information about the nomination process, well in advance so that they can help ALLPARENTSONDECK, to recognize parents and other volunteers for their positive involvement in our schools.
