The Springfield Elementary School Talent Show!

Hello future readers,

Well, school's almost out for the summer! Last Wednesday we had our last assembly for the school year, and we had a talent show! It was super outta site! We had lots of acts and lots of fun! Robyn and I peeked through the curtain and saw all the kids sitting and waiting for assembly to begin.

After the 6th graders finished Color Guard, Mrs. Taylor came on stage and gave the usual announcements, and reminded all of to have our desks cleaned out by next Monday. And then she announced the first act.

"Presenting Cheryl Castlebury playing "Fiddle In The Sky" on her violin."

She was really far out! I was surprised she knew how to play such an upbeat popular song. Normally, Cheryl's mom only wants her to play classical music. Right on, Cheryl! The next act was Bridget doing a ballet routine to some classical piano music.

Wow, she was really good too! I guess all those lessons at the Community Center paid off! After Bridget, Kyle and Marc gave a karate demonstration to the song "Kung Fu Fighting".

Dynamite! I know Jason really liked that act with all the "Hi-yahs", and kicks and body throws like in those Kung Fu movies on television. Then Mrs. Taylor announced the Baton Club!

"Presenting the Springfield Elementary Baton Club featuring Julie Newman, Robyn Brooks and Jennifer Murray!"

We came out on stage and did routines to "Walking In  Rhythm" by The Blackbyrds,  and "Doctor's Orders" by Carol Douglas.

I could tell Mrs. Taylor was proud of us, 'cos she clapped really hard!  Everyone was ready for the last act, 'cos it was Danny's group, "Loud and Proud"!

They sang "You Got the Sunshine" by The Partridge Family, ("Yahoo!), and "A Horse With No Name" by America. They were fantastic! Almost like a real band! And they weren't even playing with a record!

And that was our talent show! All of the acts were just super. We all had a lot of fun. School's out next Wednesday,  so my next entry will be during summer vacation!

Until then, future readers,
Your friend,
Julie Newman
