Miscoe Students Showcase Their Talents to Help Others

Students at the Miscoe Hill School showed off their special talents at the 8th Annual Talent Showcase on February 12. In what has become an anticipated tradition, the Talent Showcase is hosted by Miscoe Hill's Student Council and affords students from grades five through eight the opportunity to be in the spotlight for an evening.

The event began with a lively jump rope routine by the Miscoe Hill Skippers, which led into two hours of dancing, singing, piano playing, guitar playing, comedy acts and even a marionette performance. Twenty-five students participated in this year's Talent Showcase.

Money from the $3 admission fee, 50/50 raffle, and concession sales will be used by the Student Council in a variety of ways, said members of the Student Council. "This is a fundraiser to raise money that we plan to use in the school and out in the community," said Student Council Co-President Leah Fitzgerald.

The Talent Showcase is an event that is completely run by the students. The Council holds the auditions, chooses the acts by majority vote, assembles the program, sets up the auditorium, and emcees the entire night. Student Council Co-President Owen Lukas said that the entire Student Council looks forward to hosting this event each year. "It's a way for kids to express themselves and to show off their talents to the whole school. It is a really fun night," he said.

This year, assisted by Co-Advisors and Miscoe teachers Heather McCourt and Meagan (DaSilva) Pike, the Student Council has reached out numerous times into the community to help those in need. In December, the Student Council teamed up with Miscoe's Friends of Rachel Club to purchase and deliver 25 Christmas meals for families who could not afford them; and in January, the Council organized an "Orange Day" and an "Orange Social" with all of the proceeds from the events going to a local family whose 4-year-old child was diagnosed with cancer. McCourt and Pike said that the Student Council is doing everything that they can to live up to this year's motto, a quote from Helen Keller, "Alone we can do so little; together we can do so much."

The Talent Showcase was one of the ways that the students could "do so much" to help others. McCourt and Pike said that the tradition of the talent show started as a way of spreading school spirit throughout Miscoe, and this year was no different. "There was so much enthusiasm about the show," said Pike, both of the performers and of the audience.
