Fourth-grade students at C.H. Campbell Elementary School performed a variety of skills during the school’s annual Talent Show on June 6. Several students, whether by themselves or with a group of friends, entertained the audience during the show.
“Welcome to our third annual CHC Talent Show, also known as CHC Little Big Shots. While all our fourth-grade students are talented in their own special way, some have decided to share their talents with us today,” said Kim Benson, fourth-grade teacher.
The students took the stage as they were introduced to family, friends and fellow students by their teachers. Acts included, piano solos, several vocal soloists, dancing solos and duos, a Tae Kwon Do board breaking routine, original poem reading, jump rope routine, Rubik’s Cube solving, gymnastics and several skits, including Dancing Grannies, Amateur Cooking Show and Canfield Cardinal ‘Cheerleaders’ Versus Poland Bulldogs ‘Cheerleaders.’
Fourth-grade teacher Dana Zarlenga-Buist congratulated the students on their talents.
“You guys are amazing, on so many levels,” Zarlenga-Buist told the students.
CHC Principal Travis Lavery then addressed the crowd.
“Thank you for coming to our annual Talent Show. We really have amazing talent here at C.H.,” Lavery said.
As Lavery finished, the teachers, dressed in summer gear, appeared at the front of the gymnasium and performed their routine of lip syncing the Chipmunks version of “School’s Out For Summer,“ much to the delight of the surprised students. Everyone joined in clapping along to the song as the teachers and Lavery busted a move.
The Talent Show was part of the end of the school activities and a celebration of the fourth-graders’ last days at the school.
