Tonight, Thursday, May 25, we went to the Alston Middle School Awards Ceremony. Lon did not tell us he was getting any awards until Tuesday. I thought it was something like the A/B honor roll all four quarters. Nope, that is not an award at all.
His core elective is visual arts. This is the elective path they will keep all through middle school and probably into high school. Lon chose visual arts because he could learn a lot of different art techniques. Things like drawing, sculpting, photography, graphic design, etc.
