Miscoe Hill School's got talent - an abundance of it too. On February 6 the Miscoe Hill Student Council put on its 7th Annual Talent Showcase, an event that has grown over the years, with a record of 37 performances this year. Hundreds of friends and family members turned out for the evening show hosted by Miscoe's Student Council.

The show began with the Miscoe Hill Skippers performing a lively jump-rope routine which led into three hours of dancing, singing, gymnastics and cheering routines; flute, piano, guitar, trumpet, drums, and ukulele playing; comedy routines; a mime act; and even a student making an escape from a straight jacket.

The audience members got their money's worth from the $3 admission; money that the Student Council plans to put back into their school through the "Miscoe Beautification" project where they plan to re-landscaping the school grounds, buy a new fireproof curtain for the auditorium stage, and refurbish the upper gym. The Student Council also offered a $1 discount off of the admission for anyone who brought a pair of new or gently used jeans to the show. The Student Council is currently participating in the Teens for Jeans drive sponsored by Aeropostale which provides jeans to teenagers who do not have the resources to buy them on their own. The Student Council hopes to win a $10,000 grant from Aeropostale by being the school that collects the most jeans.

The Student Council also raised funds during the show by having a 50/50 raffle and selling snacks at intermission.

Student Council President and eighth grade student Riley Lochhead said that the Council loves to do this event because it is one that they are in charge of running; by holding auditions, choosing acts by majority vote, assembling the program, setting up the auditorium, and making announcements during the show. "It's an event that a lot of students come to see their friends. It's a great community event," she said.

Student Council Co-Advisors and Miscoe teachers Heather McCourt and Meghan DaSilva said that the tradition of the talent show started as a way of spreading school spirit throughout Miscoe. "The show gives the kids here a chance to show off what they are good at that we didn't necessarily know about," said McCourt. DaSilva was impressed with the caliber of this year's performances. "There is a lot of talent; a lot of enthusiasm for this," she said.
