Melina had A LOT going on this past Winter and Spring!
Melina did competitive dance which took up a lot of time, but was so much fun!
We got up bright and early to get make-up and warm ups on and had to be out the door way before the sun came up on a lot of Saturdays.

Melina's class auditioned to sing the National Anthem at the Dayton Dragons Baseball Game.
They WON!!! And it turned into a BIG DEAL in the school and community. The kids not only sang at the Dragons game on April 4, but at a Beavercreek City School Board Meeting, a City Council Meeting, and the Trebein 5K Founders Race. The kids wrote and published a book about their experiences and being ambassadors. It was a once in a lifetime experience for these kids and something special they will remember for their entire lives!
|Auditioning on a Sunday afternoon at the Fairfield Mall|
|The kids got shirts with Trebein on the front and their last names and|
#1 (for 1st grade) on the back.
TheDragons came to do an assembly at school and the
kids wrote them a thank you.
