WINTER CHEER TALENT SHOW!
We all need smiles on our faces as we are headed into a long winter in this pandemic! Our winter holidays may look a little different during this global pandemic – so let’s uplift each other by sharing our children’s talent with classmates, teachers and our Hollymead Community.
Please submit a short video of your young talent (2 min max) by Friday, January, 15, 2021
The sky’s the limit for your contribution: submit a/your poem, perform a song, be a dancer, let us marvel at your magic, be a comedian or artist, even tricks with your pets are allowed! 🙂
You will have until Friday, January 15, 2021 to submit your videos. Depending on how many we receive, we will either have one long Virtual Talent Show or several shorter videos grouped by grade. The videos will only be accessible via a link and will not be published on any social media.
Our hope with this project is to let your talent shine and put smiles on every face watching! 🙂
Questions? Email Marion Hight.
We look forward to seeing all of your amazing videos and talent!
Let us uplift each other, spread happiness, smiles and cheer. Let’s have a virtual Winter Cheer Talent Show!
NOTE: We do reserve the right to hold back any videos that the talent show panel doesn’t deem school appropriate.
