HERITAGE STARS ASSEMBLY--A STUDENT'S VIEW BY S.B.
HERITAGE STARS ASSEMBLY FEBRUARY 2012
Heritage Schools first ever Star's Assembly gave students the opportunity to show off their amazing and diverse talents--everything from original raps and break dancing to ping-pong tricks! As students, staff, relatives and friends eagerly walked passed the doors of the Performing Arts Center, they caught a glimpse of the extensive array of art that adorned the hall.
Although all masterpieces deserve a special round of applause, some particularly exceptional works were contributed from E.P., proudly representing his unit with his "labyrinth-like" drawing, as well as Jorge, who submitted a well-detailed and beautifully shaped piece titled "Candy's Sugar."
One of the shows hosts, Jack, started the night off with an introduction into his service project, which raised money for musical instruments. The instruments being intended to be donated to a local middle school.
After Jack's speech, we watched a slide-show of all the participating students. When asked what music meant to her, Paige commented on how even though people in life may not always be there for her, "... music has always been stable." Lloyd reminiscing his favorite memory of music, shared a childhood story of singing a Christmas favorite "Jingle Bells."
Allison and Collin, who also hosted the show, got the crowd laughing with their hilarious commentary. The show started out with an outstanding performance by Court, Lloyd, Morgan, Jack, G. H., and Jonathon. Their original rap certainly had the crowd screaming.
Another memorable performance was by Steven, who surprised the audience when he played the piano and sang "Come Home" by One Republic. I must have heard several comments about how "He sounds just like John Mayer!"
Overall, the 2012 Stars assembly was one of the most memorable I've had here at Heritage. And although my eardrums nearly shattered at the end of the audiences enthusiastic applause's, it was an unforgettable experience! So thanks to Ian Petersen, Rachel Luce, all the participants, and everyone else who made this years talent show possible.
