It was “standing room only” at the first-ever Essex Elementary School Talent Showcase last Wednesday. The crowd cheered as students sang, danced and juggled while others performed amazing gymnastics stunts and hoola-hoop maneuvers!
This special night was sponsored by the Essex Elementary School Foundation, a not-for-profit, volunteer organization that provides independent financial resources for worthy educational projects and enrichment programs, such as a historian-in-residence and a rolling iPad lab.
Students walked away equal winners in this non-competitive talent show, judged by EES Principal, Scott Jeffrey and Region 4 Superintendent of Schools, Dr. Ruth Levy.
Lead by EESF board member Cathy Poulin, the showcase utilized the skills of local volunteers, such as Patty Carver, of the Connecticut Children’s Theatre.
