Skinner’s Got Talent

talent show 3Last Wednesday night was a night to remember at Skinner.  The Skinner talent show brought down the house with more than 25 performances that included singing, dancing, skits, interactive dance-offs, and musical instruments. The talent show was MC’d by 8th graders Sue Ali and Aidia Bousman. Their wit and humor kept the crowd entertained and the performance flowing. Congratulations to all who participated and a special shout out to the following Skinner students:

Julian Ruck “Most Creative” for his original song and costume “I Like Turtles.”

1st place: Darius Padilla stole the show (and a few hearts) with his very own choreographed dance which earned him top prize.

2nd place: Tiyanna Dennis for her cover of Adele’s “Hurt.”

3rd place: Amber Kiley dropped jaws as the opening act with her piano and vocal set.

A huge thank you to the Neighborhood Center for organizing and making the talent show happened.

Another Reason to Love Skinner

Another reason to love Skinner?  The Neighborhood Center!

On Friday April 11th the Neighborhood Center rewarded 70 deserving Skinner students with a night of swimming, sports, movies, games, dancing, and a lot of food!  The ‘After Dark’ event went from 5-11 pm and provided a safe and extremely fun night where students could flow freely from one activity to the next.  Highlights of the evening included a staff-student dodge ball game, painting of several ceiling tiles (which will be placed in the tutoring room), and many wrinkled fingers from excessive pool use. Thank you to Neighborhood Center Staff and volunteers for making this night happen and being such an important part of the Skinner Community.
