    The FWCD Middle School held a Virtual Talent Show.

    Middle School Share Their Talents

    The Student Council-sponsored Middle School Talent Show is a time-honored tradition for its students. This year, many performances shifted to video, and the talent show was no different. Because a significant number of students are involved in fine arts, which used  video performances and some in-person performances (ballet and eighth-grade play), the result was the talent show had fewer entries than in years past. However, these featured students chose to record themselves and share their passions and that takes great courage. The Student Council hopes to resume the in-person show next year. In the meantime, give a round of applause for the students in this year’s Virtual Middle School Talent Show.
