LEAD’S got Talent! April 28, 2018

Posted on

We’re overhauling the LEAD “Sing-Out” competition this year and turning it into a talent showcase! We want to include all of our students who may have wanted to perform, but may not have necessarily been singers! We invite you to still sing if you want, but this year, you can also dance, play an instrument, demonstrate a unique talent and have a good time performing in front of your peers and your family! Our Judges panel will be selected from outside of the Borough to try and keep the showcase as objectionable as possible. Registrations will be up soon for auditions, and the event will be held at Don Bosco HS on April 28, 2018 time: tbd. Come show us your talent!
