On Tuesday, March 28th students at Valley Institute Elementary were able to attend a school-wide talent show for the first time in many years. Students had to audition in front on a group of judges, who then chose the top acts to perform in the actual show. Mrs. Edwards, our hard-working music teacher, rehearsed with all the chosen participants to make sure that all their acts were top notch! The talents that were displayed ranged from gymnastic routines, singing, dancing, instrumental presentations, as well as a special guest performance from a former Valley student. Students were enthusiastic as they cheered on their classmates for their unique talents. That evening there was an encore performance for family and friends. All in all, we discovered that Valley Institute has a diverse talent pool that entertained the young and not so young and put a smile on the face and a tear in the eye of all who attended.
