Should I Be Upset That My Son Didn’t Letter?

Michele Mathews

My son, Mathew’s Naches Valley High School Band program was last night.

After the kids performed the band teacher handed out certificates and letters to kids who had been in band for 2 years without missing games, practices and competitions. I wasn’t sure if Mathew would get a letter. He’s been in band for over 2 years and has never missed a practice, game or competition. So I’m sitting there thinking he could get a letter. Then, the band teacher calls a girls name that I know has missed practices and games. So now, I’m thinking he is definitely getting a letter. I get my camera ready …. and before I know it the band teacher is saying, “give these kids a big applause.”

What? Wait! Why didn’t my son earn a letter?

When we got home I asked Mathew why he didn’t get a letter. He said, “I didn’t fill out the paperwork.” I was not happy to hear this! He went on to say that he could get it next year and it really wasn’t a big deal to him whether he got his letter.

Not a big deal!!! Well I was very upset that he did not get his letter, but he seemed perfectly fine with it.

Should I have been that upset?
