Gold Rush Has Talent
Students demonstrated their many talents Friday during our annual school talent show.  Students sang, danced, played instruments, demonstrated karate moves and more.  We were so impressed with the level of talent that students displayed!  We thank Mrs. Petty for making this tradition possible.
