On Thursday, February 13th, students, staff, and families gathered to admire, and be entertained by, the diverse student talent that walks our hallways. For the 28th Annual Celebration of Talent, GEMS students showcased their skills. Among them were dancers, singers, pianists, comedians, and instrumentalists…. a variety of talent that was fun to watch and extremely entertaining.
Behind the scenes, students videoed each performance, took responsibilities for the setup and break down of equipment, cast lighting on each performer and were an integral part of supporting each act. Student council members decorated prior to the show and were on hand to pass out programs and assist in any way.
Nancy Volatile-Wood and Jessica Sweeney have taken the lead in providing this wonderful opportunity for years. Their support of each student and encouragement of each individual performance is recognized by our community and they are prideful of each students growth over the years. The progress they see in each musician, dancer, and artist is extraordinary and their smiles say it all.
We look forward to the 29th Celebration of Talent next year!
