This year SJHS had a talent show. Many students auditioned and a lot made it. The judges of the talent show, Mrs. Pina, Ms. Jensen, and Mrs. Ottley, said they were very stunned at how much talent we have at our school. “It was very hard to pick only a few to be in the talent show,” said Ms. Jensen.

The talent show was held on December 1st. There was a night show and an assembly. Some of the atcs were a cappella singing, dancing, playing musical instruments, and so much more!

According to Hannah Mason, an eighth grader at SJHS, it was really fun. She was a part of the a cappella group that sang "White Winter Hymnal" and did a clap rhythm.

Kabrie Pratt, another eighth grader and part of the a cappella group, said, “Kennedy Bird, Jake Jackson, and Hannah Mason (all eighth graders), came up with the idea, so we all just practiced during Quest Time everyday with some other kids in the Master Singer choir class; that’s what got us all together.”

According to Luke Gleave, a ninth grader at SJHS who was also in the talent show, he played the ukulele and was motivated to do the talent show because last year it was so fun to watch, and he wanted to be a part of it. 

Emma Rich, another eighth grader at SJHS, said, “My talent was playing the piano, a song I composed called ‘I Wish I Never’.” She went on to say, “What got me into my talent was my love of music, and how it brings comfort to me. I always wanted to write a song, so I had an inspiration and pursued it.”

Adi Walker, an eighth grader at SJHS who danced for the talent show, said, “It was really fun, and I wanted to try out for the talent show this year because we also danced last year, and it is really fun.”

Thanks Ms. McBride and Student Council for putting this talent show on and all the hard work she has put into this event. It was great!
